The bags, rolled-up and unfolded.

Envirosax reusable shopping bags are compact, lightweight bags that will help rid your use of plastic bags everytime you shop. They fold up into a neat little roll that you can keep stashed in your purse, ready to be used at anytime. Envirosax bags have been tested for safety and strength and can hold up to 44 lbs of weight! The fun colors and designs will not fade and the bags are easily washable. Here at Julia James we have TEN different design options to choose from, from pretty florals to bright polka dots and even Sesame Street characters! For just $10 you’ll be doing your part to help protect our environment by reducing the need for harmful one-time use plastic bags.
