About Envirosax:

I've been an advocate of reusable shopping totes, especially cute ones and I've written about Envirosax bags here, here and here.

Envirosax bags from the Graphic Series are made of lightweight polyester, and are portable, waterproof, and weigh just 1.4oz each. These groovy bags are available individually or as a series of 5 contained within a handy pouch. With reinforced seams, each surprisingly large bag can hold a weight the equivalent of two supermarket plastic bags.

Bag dimensions (unrolled) 19.5” x 16.5”
Weight capacity 44 lbs
Bag dimensions (rolled-up) 4” x 1.5”
Bag weight 1.4 oz
Pouch size 9” x 6”

Will Dad Like An Envirosax Bag?

Why yes, of course! My Dad has his own stash of reusable shopping totes, thanks to my influence (ehem!). He uses one for his golf shoes, and another for sweaty golf shirts. It's also useful for setting aside used clothes when he's traveling. And of course, it comes in handy for last minute duty free shopping, when there's no more space in his carry-on luggage!

Hello CD!

I want to win the Envirosax (Retro Graphic 1 and 2) for my dearest dad! I know that he'll be able to put the Envirosax to good use when he goes out to do his favorite hobby - grocery shopping! I've been trying to convince him to switch from plastic bags, which we accumulate like crazy because of his daily trips to the grocery, to earth friendly bags like the Envirosax! Yey for dad, yey for the environment!

My Dad will absolutely love an Envirosax Bag. This would really be useful whenever he goes to local farmer's markets on the weekends to stock up on fresh, organic produce and unique home-cooked delicacies from the different regions. Plus, the prints would be really perfect for him! He likes to match the colors of his outfit to the rubber shoes he wears (on weekends, that is), so I guess now he can match his outfits to his Envirosax bag!

I really hope and pray I win this contest... :)

I want to win Envirosax for my "Tatay" because he is simply not an environemental friendly citizen. These bags may be a good start for him to help save our dear planet Earth!=D

I think my dad will like the retro graphic bag 2. He's always been a retro/hippie guy.

We recently migrated here in Canada and my dad will stay with us for only 6 weeks. After that, he will go back to the Philippines to take care of my mother's parents.

Given a chance, I would like to give this bag as a parting gift before he goes home. This will be the first time that our family would be separated from him for a long time. I think that he is making a big sacrifice just to be able to take care of his in-laws.

I would love the envirosax retro graphic 1 & 2.
Because all my enviro bags are too girlish, dear dad always feels awkward carrying them after grocery shopping. These would be the perfect solution!

bec my dad is starting to become hip! he's been wearing custom fit RL shirts, two-tone lacoste shirts, slim fit jeans, and boat shoes from crocs!
he also stopped wearing his daddy watch and traded it for a sportier nike one.
those bags will go well with this hip new look! :-)

I want to win the Oxford 4 and Retro 4 Envirosax for my Dad simply because he deserves it! My Dad has always been the one person I would look up to and try to follow. He's the reason I am the person I am right now.
Dad will find the Envirosax extremely useful when he brings around his organic vegetables and when he buys toys for his grandson.

One of my fondest memories of my dad and I as a child was when he would wake me up on Sunday mornings and go with him to the market. My dad does the market duties in the family and he would teach me how to buy fresh finds in the market and brag me to his "suki" in the market that I'm his daughter(hehehe...) Then we usually have a nice breakfast together on the Tropical Hut Hambuger joint nearby ; )

I would love to introduce this Envirosax bags to my dad. He would be able to use it when he goes to the market and even when he plays tennis on weekends.

Would love to win the Oxford 2 and 3 for my dad which he can use for his sweaty gym clothes.

My dad has taken on a more youthful and hip approach to life ever since he was diagnosed to be borderline diabetic. He's been working out in the gym, has taken up biking and has been eating healthy since then. I love that my dad has taken all these changes in his health and age in a very positive manner!

Also, it would be grand for him to have these bags to match the Envirosax bags I and my sister have. :)

Hi! I would like to give the envirosax bag to my dad. He is the "shadow" of my mom and goes everywhere she goes! They are an ageing couple who would soon migrate to the US. My dad would always grab and carry my mom's stuff whenever they are in the mall or in the weekend market. I bet he would look sooo good w/ an envirosax bag! He can also use it to put his "pasalubongs" when going home to visit his siblings in the province, bring it with him in the hospital for his annual cystoscopy, stuff his "apos" (grandchildren) lampins and toys while playing with them, etc.

-- Retro Graphic 5

Cheers to all dads out there!!!

The Oxford Bag 2 and the Retro Graphic Bag 5 look really fab! Sadly my dad passed away just this April 3...but it would be cool win win these for my husband. It's about time each of us do our share in caring for the environment. Saying "NO" to plastic bags would definitely be a start! =)...crossing fingers (and toes!) that I win!

I want to win Envirosax bags for Tatay because I miss him so much. My parents work abroad as I study in the Philippines. Giving him Envirosax bags will best share my love for him and for the environment.

Thank you so much.
