If you're like me, you get to the checkout line at the grocery store when suddenly it dawns on you that the pile of reusable grocery bags you conveniently stash in the car are, conveniently, still. in. the. car.
Dilemma and, well, just plain bulky. If you're like me, you grab a basket and seemingly shop for enough food to feed a family of 8, convincing myself that it will all cram nicely in a one by two plastic basket instead of a cart. With all this food, where exactly are all those folded up canvas bags going to go anyway?
Well, on a recent trip to NYC, I discovered the solution to my problem: Envirosax. Envirosax are eco-friendly reusable polyester bags that fold up and roll up so tiny that they easily fit into your purse or pocket. They are sold individually or in pouches of 5 and hold an amazing 44 pounds of, well, whatever! In addition to being washable, they come in upwards of 30 colors and prints, so you can save the planet in style.
As always, it seems that high fashion comes with a high price tag, and Envirosax are definitely not your typical dirt cheap canvas or "plastic" grocery sack made from recycled soda bottles. A single bag will run you $8.50 and their pouch of 5 a cool $37.95.
Steep yes, but where are my Envirosax? In my purse, ready for the farm stand, grocery store or next trip to the pharmacy, never to be forgotten in the car again!
