CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Envirosax Aqua Water Bottles Review & Giveaway!! CLOSED

Friday, January 21st, 2011

For some, it can be hard to imag­ine a world with­out plas­tic – espe­cially plas­tic bags.


The cons of using plas­tic bags are so over­whelm­ing I don’t think I can think of any pros. They are a huge pol­lu­tion prob­lem, their light­weight design allows them to blow away eas­ily. The fact that they are free gives them no value so peo­ple don’t think about how they dis­pose of them. They are made from petro­leum, which could be used for fuel or energy. They don’t biode­grade, instead they break­down and are mis­taken for food and are often eaten by both land and marine ani­mals which is fatal. They are found every­where and many ani­mals become fatally entangled.

They are not biodegrad­able, so they will per­sist pretty much for­ever, wher­ever they end up. Land­fills if we are lucky, but because of their wide­spread use and their abil­ity to fly away in the wind, they can be a big part of the trash along roads and fields. If they get into the water, they look like food and end up clog­ging the stom­achs of a vari­ety of ani­mals, most famously sea tur­tles look­ing for jellyfish.


The recy­cling of plas­tic bags, while prefer­able to other dis­posal meth­ods, is not cost-effective. Plas­tic bags have only existed for 25 years yet the bil­lions that have been pro­duced since then have caused immea­sur­able dam­age to the envi­ron­ment and to wildlife.

Thanks to Envi­rosax reusable shop­ping bags, there is no more need for this DREADFUL plastic!!

“Founded by Belinda and Mark David-Tooze in 2004, Envi­rosax® orig­i­nates from Cur­rumbin Val­ley in South East Queens­land, Aus­tralia. The Envi­rosax team uses renew­able and recy­clable prod­ucts where pos­si­ble, and is com­mit­ted to oper­at­ing on eco­log­i­cally sus­tain­able principles.

Sit­u­ated on 10 acres of pris­tine Aus­tralian rain­for­est, Belinda, Mark and their three young chil­dren live an eco­log­i­cally sus­tain­able lifestyle with solar hot water and pho­to­voltaic cells for elec­tric­ity. A sewage sys­tem recy­cles waste water, water­ing the exten­sive per­ma­cul­ture gar­dens and fil­tered rain­wa­ter tanks pro­vide the organic veg­etable gar­dens, fruit trees and the premises with water.

They live totally off the grid and are liv­ing the sus­tain­able lifestyle that we hope will spread to more and more homes in the future.”

All of Envi­rosax Reusable Bags are neatly cat­e­go­rized and also come in an exten­sive array of fash­ion­able designs and colours mak­ing shop­ping a com­plete snap! Not only are these bags eco-friendly, they are eco-chic to boot!!

I was sent an Envi­rosax Aqua Water Bot­tle to review, and it totally exceeded my expec­ta­tions! I take it every­where with me now, and will defi­nately be order­ing more of these in the near future!!

•Aqua Skin­nys are 8.2″ tall and 2.6″ in diam­e­ter
•Each bot­tle comes with a screw top lid with a carib­iner attached, and an optional sports cap can be pur­chased sep­a­rately
