Envirosax are an eco-friendly alternative to the disposable shopping bags that have caused so much damage to the environment. Envirosax bags are lightweight, portable, waterproof and each one holds the equivalent of two supermarket plastic bags (44 lbs.) thanks to reinforced seams. Environsax smush up into a little pouch that weighs less than 1.5 ozs. and measures just 4" x 1.5", yet when fully open each bag measures 19.5" x 16.5". They're so small, there's no excuse to not have a few in the car or in your bag or pocket.
Envirosax are not made of recycled material; instead, after much research, Envirosax chose virgin polyester as the best material. The fundamental problem with conventional plastic bags is not that they are made from plastic, it's that they are not designed to be re-used. The philosophy of Envirosax is to provide a fashionable and practical product that is designed to last, and despite some drawbacks, polyester is the best material to suit this purpose:
* It is extremely lightweight and allows the bag to be rolled up into a very compact package, which encourages people to carry them with them and increases re-use.
* It can be printed by sublimation, which means the print will never fade and the bag will look good for its whole lifetime.
* It is highly durable, which means each Envirosax will last for years.
* It is relatively inexpensive, which means Envirosax are affordable for anyone, which will help spread the message of re-use to people of all incomes.
After much discussion over the ethics of using plastic, the folks at Envirosax decided the most important thing was to make a reusable bag that everyone would want to use.
