envirosaxPart of being a “SafeMama” for me means improving my family’s quality of life as well as making more efforts to protect our environment with a few small changes. I’m not fully green by any stretch… I’m more of a turquoise or mint green at this point but I am trying to make small changes that can help the earth. First it was my switch from plastic water bottles. Next step was plastic bags.

In a recent article, the New York Times reported that Whole Foods Market chains are going to stop offering plastic bags and instead provide customers with either recycled paper bags or reusable bags as an alternative. I really like this move by Whole Foods and I hope it continues and spreads to more grocery chains and super stores.

For the holidays a friend and SafeMama contributor gifted me with a set of Envirosax. I’ve been putting them to good use and I fully admit I love them. They are big enough to fit a ton of items and the material is waterproof and super lightweight. They have the ability to be rolled up tiny but I just jam all the bags into one and leave them in the trunk for my next outing. The best part, they are stylish as well as functional.

Get Some: They’re available on their website (I have the monochromatic set but they all look cool)I just discovered they have a line of organic bamboo and linen sets too. I’ve seen them available is a few places like Amazon and the Wishing Fish. I might have to start scouring for the organic line… they look gorgeous. I do what I can, and at least this way, I look cool doing my part.
