Conserving NOW! Envirosax~ Review and Giveaway

Over the past year or so my family has been making the switch to living a greener, healthier life. It is important for us to do our part in leaving this planet a healthier place to live for future generations to come. Fortunately, there are many products available to help make the switch to green living easy. Conserving NOW is one company dedicated to saving our planet.

Conserving NOW sells reusable bags, and what better way for one wanting to live greener than by using a reusable shipping bag rather than a plastic bag.

{About Conserving NOW}
After watching shopper after shopper exclaim at the checkstand that they had forgotten their reusable bags - AGAIN! - it became clear to us that people needed a little help to change the habit and convenience of plastic bags. My mom and I have always believed that simple actions can have a huge impact. Never did this lesson seem more important – we were passionate about helping others create change in their own lives. Inspired by our idea of change, we have developed classroom lesson plans, provided information for getting involved, sold gorgeous reusable bags and reached out to create a community.

Conserving NOW is committed to educating our children. 100% of their profits go toward their classroom kits. It is their goal to give every teacher and student in America the tools necessary to stop using plastic bags themselves and to educate themselves and their friends and family on the dangers of plastic bags.


As I mentioned, an important goal of Conserving NOW is to educate young children on the importance of becoming responsible environmental citizens. In addition to providing free teaching resources, they partner with schools in a variety of ways:

*Fund-Raising Programs

*Community Service Days

*School Assembly Programs

*Plastic Bag Awareness Week

*High School Ambassador Programs

*Grocery Store Giveaways

Help Conserving NOW educate the next generation! Conserving NOW has made Classroom Education Kits available for purchase at a special price of $50 per kit! Donate one to YOUR child's classroom.
Conserving NOW sent me an Envirosax reusable tote for review. Envirosax bags are stylish, compact reusable bags that will take you from the market to the mall, to the pool and back home again! Mine has seen quite a bit of use since it arrived. I have filled it with groceries, toys, clothing, and school supplies. The bags are a generous 19.5" x 16.5" when unrolled and can safely hold 44 pounds. When rolled, they are a compact 4" x 1.5" in size, perfect to stash in your car, purse, or diaper bag so that you always have it with you, and at the cost of only $7.99, you can afford to purchase a few. Keep some for yourself and give some as gifts.
Speaking of gifts, Envirosax makes for terrific gift wrapping. Rather than purchasing wrapping paper or a paper gift bag, why not use a reusable Envirosax tote? That's two gifts in one! What better way to get someone started on the reusable bag habit than to gift-wrap a gift for them? They also make great but inexpensive teacher/family/friend gifts. Lastly, this line has some really cute bags for children, animal bags as well as perfectly sized lunch bags. http://www.conservingnow.com/shop

With 46 designs to choose from, these colorful designer bags are amazing! When using my Envirosax tote, I love how stylish I feel while saving the planet.
