Giveaway & Review: Envirosax Reusable Tote Bags (2 Winners) [CLOSED]

Even if you've never visited their website, you probably have heard the name "Envirosax" because they are the leader in designer reusable tote bags. I was thrilled when the good people at Envirosax sent me one of their Graphic totes to review from the Spring '09 Candy series. The bag I received was the first in the new series.

What I thought about my Evirosax designer tote:

1) I loved how compact it was when folded and rolled. It is only 4" long . . . small enough to fit in your back pocket, a small purse, and your glove compartment. It was extremely easy to refold, roll the bag back up, and secure the bag with the built-in snap.

2) While unfolded and unrolled, this tote measures a roomy 19-1/2" x 16-1/2". Here is what I was able to fit in mine with some room to spare . . .
  • 1 beach towel

  • 1 pair of jeans

  • 1 sweatshirt

  • 1 pair of canvas shoes

  • 4 paperback books

3) I like the neutral colors used for this particular bag. It's as if it was designed to coordinate with blue jeans, khakis, and black dress pants.

4) With the bag being so roomy, I was concerned about how sturdy it would be if I stuffed it full and it became quite heavy. The fact that the body and handles of the bag are one piece made the bag extremely strong. I was also pleased to see that the seams on the handle were reinforced.

Overall, I am extremely pleased with my Envirosax bag. I could easily keep 2 or 3 of these in our diaper bag, 1 or 2 in my purse, and a few in the car. If I didn't exert some self-control, I would start a collection of all my favorite prints. Some of the series are available in 5pks with a carrying pouch, but I think I would want to select the individual designs I liked the best. I also want to point out that Envirosax recently added a series of organic totes which are made of all-natural fibers rather than plastic.
