Keeping the chic in eco-chic



Envirosax It's not every day that I can score style points while doing a little good for the planet. This summer, though, I'm on a roll.

I've become a hold-the-bag, go-green kinda gal at the grocery store. But until recently, not so much at the mall. It's not that I have any use for yet another shopping bag. I'm just not keen on whipping out my ratty Publix handles.

That all changed a month ago, when I met Envirosax at a boutique in Boston.

Minus the geeky name, this is the coolest eco-accessory I've seen. It's a stylish reusable bag that rolls up like a sleeping bag into the size of an Easter egg.

It's so small and lightweight, I don't mind keeping it in my purse all of the time. If you order online, you can pick from all sorts of funky prints and colors. (The summery colors appear to be out of stock, but I just love the trend-on for fall "Candy" series, see photo above, in hues of purple, black and gray).

I feel a little less guilty about shopping when I can say "hold the bag" at the register. And I walk out with something that makes a much bigger statement than a store name.
