Fun Finds For Mom

Envirosax Father’s Day Giveaway


This contest is now closed.

To celebrate Father’s Day, Envirosax is giving away an Envirosax bag from their Oxford or Retro Graphics series to one lucky Fun Finds For Mom reader. I had a chance to test out the argyle Envirosax bag you see here, and let me tell you, it’s better looking in person than on the screen. At one point, I saw it out of the corner of my eye draped over a pair of jeans, and I wished I could wear the darn thing.

Yes, I’m a longtime Baggu fan, it’s true. But I recently added a Reisenthel to my stash, and now this Envirosax has joined the family. So I’m starting to open my mind to having a whole family of reusable bags — as long as they’re the kind that I can scrunch up into my purse so I always have them with me when I need them.

This weekend I went to three different grocery stores (don’t you hate that?) and used the three different bags. The Envirosax held the most, and it was the only one that has the little snap tabs attached to the bag so that you can roll it up and snap it into a palm-sized bundle to stuff in your bag. Both the Baggu and Reisenthel have separate pouches that usually get separated from the bag over time. I also like the design of the straps, which make it easy to sling the bag over your shoulder, even when it’s filled with groceries.

Envirosax is giving away one bag from the Oxford or Retro Graphics series because these are some of their more “manly” designs. I let my man use it this weekend when he took the kids to the library, and he looked pretty darn good hoisting his bag full of books.

If you live in Phoenix, you can find Envirosax at La Grande Orange, or you can order directly from the Envirosax website.

Update: The giveaway will now have two winners! One winner will receive their choice of an Envirosax bag from the Oxford or Retro Graphics collections. The other winner will receive a Duck Egg (really pretty light blue) bag from the Greengrocer collection.

To enter, just leave a comment on this post by midnight MST on Friday Saturday, June 20. Anonymous comments won’t count. The winner will be randomly chosen and announced on June 23. If I don’t hear back from the winner, another winner will be chosen. One entry per person please. Thanks and good luck!
