Travel Necessity: Envirosax Bags

I’m going to recycle some posts from my old site, There was no way to migrate them to the new website, but I’ll try to refresh the content here and there. Of course I’ll continue making new posts as well!

I haven’t taken a trip in the last four years without one of these beautiful and portable bags. At home they function as reusable grocery bags–on the road they have become a beach, diaper, shopping and carry-on bag. Each one folds up into a neat little 4″ package and can hold up to 44 lbs. The first five-piece set pictured here is priced at $39.95 on

For chronic international airport over-shoppers like my mom, Envirosax are a handy way to bring your impulse purchases onto the plane. I usually get them at (discounts offered from time to time make them a great value).

Specs from the site:

An Envirosax Graphic Series bag is 19.7″ by 16.5″, and folds up to the size of a piece of sushi, 4″ by 1.5″ diameter. It weighs in at just 1.4oz. An Envirosax can quite comfortably hold two plastic grocery bags of shopping, and has been tested to hold at least 44lbs.

The inks and dyes used in the printing of the polyester graphic series bags are eco-friendly and no carcinogenic amides are used. The printing process of sublimation ensures that the bags will not fade when washed.
