The original designer reusable bag

Kristi L. Gustafson, staff writer for Times Union recently wrote “Reusable shoppings bags are so in vogue, shoppers can now find hundreds of different totes that are neither paper nor plastic. In fact, a reusable sack may be more fashion-forward these days than the latest must-have Louis Vuitton handbag.”

It seems that in the current economic market, the must have Dolce & Gabbana or Chanel bags have been replaced by more affordable, eco-chic reusable bags like Envirosax.

And with the likes of Cynthia Nixon using Envirosax, the reusable bag trend looks set to continue.

Green Bling!

Self anointed Green Living Goddess – Antoinette Nue appeared on TV show Focus Atlanta recently and demonstrated how using an Envirosax bag is one of the quickest and easiest ways to “start going green” without losing your fashion edge.

Presenter Keisha Williams explained that most consumers find the whole ‘going green’ concept a little overwhelming and often don’t know where to start, leaving it in the ‘too hard basket.’

Antoinette offers practical tips to get started, suggesting that the best place to begin is with something in which you are interested or passionate about, as you are more likely to continue.  So whether that is recycling or only buying clothes made out of organic fibres, every little action will have a positive impact on the environment.

Shopping is one of Antoinette’s favourite pass times and “carrying your own reusable shopping bags is one of the most important things you can do to help the environment” she says, “landfill is full of plastic that won’t biodegrade for 1,000 years.

So while there are many reusable shopping bag options around, to ‘go green without sacrificing your bling’, Antoinette chooses Envirosax bags for their convenience and stylish range of designs. Going green has never been so easy, fun and fashionable.

Envirosax invited to the Courtney Cox/David Arquette Propr Clothing Launch

On October 15, 2008, Courtney Cox and David Arquette launched their new organic clothing line, Propr, in their Beverly Hills home. Cox and Arquette wanted 10 eco-friendly companies to showcase their products, and Envirosax was invited to be one of them!

Also cool is the fact that all proceeds from the event went to the charity Art of Elysium, an organization that encourages celebrities to volunteer their time  and talents to children battling serious medical illnesses.

GBK Productions, one of the companies producing this event ordered their own custom Envirosax for the A-Listers like Jennifer Aniston and Cindy Crawford, and used our Monochromatic 4 bag for all other important guests.

Despite the reclusive nature of many celebs, we nabbed some great shots of David Arquette with the new Botanica 3 bag, and of Kelly Slater with GBK’s custom Envirosax. Have a look!
