Conserving Now Envirosax Review/Giveaway Extended due to Mother's Day CLOSED

#58 lilyk

Living green has become a big thing to most households nowadays and mine is no different. I have slowly been changing my life to greener. I have started using skin care lines, lotions, make up. cleaning supplies and even reusable grocery bags. I have also been getting into recycling more but we are kindof lacking space to store the different totes/trash cans for each kind of products but I do what I can with not much room. I would have to say my biggest change would have to be the reusable bags. So, when I had the opportunity to review a reusable bag from Conserving Now I was super excited to have a new bag to use for my shopping. Plus, with bags I want something that is stylish and got that oh factory and these stylish bags offer that. Conserving now offers several choices when choosing the bag that best fits your style. Along with their cotton totes they all offer the Envirosax bag which is super stylish and don't take up that much room with the folding up and snapping together.



So, who is behind the Conserving Now? Gayle and Meghan are a mother and daughter team who care deeply about environmental issues.

~Meghan is a lawyer who believes that lasting change requires community and legislative action. She is deeply committed to environmental living and blogs about conservation issues and news. She was inspired by cities (such as San Francisco, CA) and countries (such as Ireland), in their quests to rid their environments of toxic plastic bags. Meghan hopes to keep us all up-to-date on what inspirational communities around the world are doing to reduce plastic bag consumption.

~Gayle began her career as a first grade teacher who believes that early education creates positive lifelong habits. She was widely recognized for her innovative teaching style as one of the first educators to utilize computers in the classroom to teach reading. She soon became a statewide leader instructing other educators on how to teach students of all ages to read by composing and creating daily personal journals and storybooks on the computer. Gayle was eventually recruited by a leading computer company and spent the next 15 years creating and building successful internet technology companies. Building on her success as a veteran Silicon Valley technology executive, Gayle frequently speaks on the topic of social media and online community building. As a former educator and CEO, Gayle understands the challenges business and community leaders, teachers and parents face in creating positive and sustainable, long-term changes. 
 Join their community of earth friendly individuals who care about our planet. At conservingNow.com, you can find helpful tips, info, products and educational resources.  
They have 3 primary goals:

1) help adults change their behavior by eliminating plastic bags from their lives 
2) help education our youth to become strong environmental stewards and 
3) provide the most current information about environmental issues
They also provide individuals, organizations and communities with Free car window static cling reminders to help them remember their reusable bags. They also sell reusable bags, eco kits and other useful products along with environmental classroom teaching kits. 100% of their profits go toward providing classroom kits or providing individual static clings to their community members.


They also offer T-shirts that help spread the word along with Static Cling which mine is in my car now. Also offered is starter kits that can help you get started by getting several bags and switching over. Another thing I think is great on their site is the Classroom starter kit which helps educate others on going green.
When I first got the little tote I was surprised for one how little it was and then when you opened it up it is huge. It holds so much and the fact that it is so stylish makes me really happy. Where I am switching completely over to reusable bags I want something that goes with my personality and is super stylish and these bags offer that. I also love the fact when you are all done with shopping that you can easily fold it up snap it closed, then can either put it in your purse, diaper bag, or dash in your car. It doesn't take up any room at all which is nice because I have a hook behind my door in my closet that I have some hanging on and after a while the back side of my door is going to have a lot on it. I am a huge fan on the effect that when someone does it people follow slowly but they do. So, when others see me using reusable bags they will start to think and eventually do the same. All it takes is one person to make a change and in the process I am teaching my kids to be green. I also found some really good information on the website and so much was helpful.
