To Market to market with my new Envirosax


I'm headed off to the farmer's market with a little green gift from my eco-friendly mom. It's an Envirosax and it's waaaay cute, very functional, and green!

These lightweight, water-proof, reusable bags fold up into a tiny pouch that fits easily into my purse. I'm already a fan of the reusable grocery bags and I leave a stash of them in my car. But there are often times I forget to grab them and they certainly don't fold up this small.

My Envirosax will come in handy at the market,
at the fair (to carry all those horrible prizes my husband likes to win),
at the pool (to carry home wet suits),
just about anywhere!

There is a line of kids bags too. How cool!

Ban the sandwich bag.

When my twins started preschool, I started making lunches.
At first it was just 2 days a week. Last year it was 5 days
a week and if it weren't for pizza Fridays I would've had a nervous breakdown trying to come up with a variety of foods that were nutritious, fun, and can hold up in a lunch box.

I also started to feel a sharp pang of guilt every time I grabbed another one of those plastic baggies which seemed so perfect for sandwiches, crackers, cookies, veggies and everything that I wanted to pack separately.

And then I found Glad and Ziploc containers in a variety of sizes that not only fit in a lunch box, but also open up my food options to include hummus, salad, and dip for their veggies.


They even make these little ones that I can use for yogurt and applesauce. That means I get a little green pat on the back because I buy larger containers of yogurt and applesauce which cuts down on packaging thus reducing waste. And not to mention the number of baggies that will stay out of a landfill.
