Reusable Foldable Bags are Not Just for Women


I was reading one of the reviews for these reusable bags, Waste-Less Bags Farmstand Variety Pack, 4-Count Bags when one of the comments caught my attention. It was mentioned that many men would also love to use reusable bags if only it comes with more guy-friendly designs.

It is true that most foldable reusable bag designs caters to females. However, there are also many designs available that falls under the unisex segment of the market.

Reusable bags are for everyone. I’m very hopeful that one day, we can use it more than plastic bags. There are so many designs available that can cater to all sexes, individual style and convenience of use. Some are rated to withstand heavy loads, while others can be folded into a neat little key chain. Do checkout our product categories to view and purchase a reusable foldable bag that will suit your individual styles and needs.

 

 

To end, here is a video of celebrities with their reusable Envirosax foldable bags.

Next time you go shopping consider using a reusable foldable bag. Always have one in your bag, car or your pocket 🙂

“Go Green Kids” for a Better Earth


As I was watching an episode of “Desperate Housewives”, I realized how many people doesn’t really seem to care about the environment.

The argument in that particular episode was…

“I haven’t been recycling before and won’t bother to recycle now.  As far as I’m concerned, I’m happy with the environment I live in.”

The other neighbor argued, “What about the future generation?  How will they survive in such a polluted environment?”

The non-recycling neighbor could not be bothered because she argued; she will be dead by then.  Plus, she doesn’t have any nor would have any grandchildren that would get affected anyway.

I wish I can say that it’s one of those episodes that can only happen in the movies.  However, it is an everyday reality that happens in a lot of neighborhoods.   Some people only care for the moment and for their own good.

But, life is all about give and take.  If the environment gives you something then you should care for it in return.  Some people would have given more for the future generation such as those who died fighting for our nation, so that people like us can enjoy freedom and normal lives.  Thus, one can’t really say that you should only care for whatever affects you.  Whatever you have right now is of course attributable mainly to your efforts, but also to the many contributions of the people around you.

But honestly, it can sometimes be a fruitless effort to convert this type of people to care for the environment.  Sometimes, it is best to divert this endeavor to the younger generation.  Start them early into recycling and caring for the environment.  As the saying goes, it is best to “nip it in the bud”.  It is best to deal with the problem when they are still manageable.  Once these kids grow up without any concern for the environment they live in, it will be a struggle to overturn their routine.

It is comparable to how many of us still struggle to eliminate the use of plastic bags.   Since we were kids, we got used to the convenience of using one or being supplied with it in every grocery shopping.  Now that we know how it can negatively impact our environment, we still continue to use it out of convenience.  It is like a bad habit that’s hard to get rid of.

However, things could be different if we’ve been introduced early into using reusable bags.  Since, we can’t turn back time…it is best that we encouraged and instill in the young instead, the benefits of recycling.

You can encourage them to use reusable bags.  They can either decorate their own fabric bags which they can reuse in lieu of plastics bags or you can buy them some reusable kids’ bags which hopefully can set the trend among their peers 🙂

Hopefully, these “Go Green Kids” can help protect the earth and preserve it for future generations.  Sometimes future proofing the earth  is not about finding alternative sources of accommodation, water or resources but it is about preserving and nurturing our natural environment now.

Please do check our “Eco Store” for a range of  fashionable and reusable foldable bags.  It comes in a range of designs, styles and colors that you’ll be proud to be called an eco shopper!

Plastic Bag Ban + Holiday = FoldableBags.com


I’ve always believed that every website has a story from where it all started. So here’s the story behind Foldablebags.com

Recently, one of our local major retailers removed the use of plastic bags from its stores. The management started to replace the plastic shopping bags with more eco friendly alternatives.   They started selling the green reusable bags and compostable bags in lieu of the free plastic bag that came with a purchase.

The green bags are just selling for a few cents, yet I would rather bring my goods with me or stash it in my small handbag.  If it’s too bulky for my handbag, I usually bring it back to my car before I continue with my shopping.

After awhile, the effort became more tedious for me.  Sometimes, to save on paying for the green bags I would shop at that particular store last.   Then, I would stow away the items I bought from that “no to plastic bags” store in the plastic bag that came with my purchases from another  store.

By now, you must be asking why I can’t just purchase that compostable bag or green bag for my convenience, if it only costs me a few cents.  It’s better for the environment anyway compared to using plastic bags.  Well, true, true…

However, I don’t like paying for things that I don’t need.  I’ve got too much free plastic bags in the house already and the same goes for the “go green bags” (which I use as a grocery bag only).  To add, I don’t think it’s too fashionable to be bringing these green bags around when I’m shopping.  It is also too bulky to always have it in my bag.

However, everything changed after a recent holiday in Asia.  It was the first time I took notice of  these fashionable foldable bags.  I knew they’ve been selling foldable bags locally too, but it was different when I saw this wall full of stylish foldable bags.  It really grabbed my attention to buy not one but several in different designs.

It was so compact, sturdy and fashionable too! I bought several foldable bags.  I always have one inside my frequently used bags.  Now, I don’t leave the house without one! It was so handy.  Plus, I don’t mind carrying it around when I’m shopping because it is very stylish.

My friends loved it.  People who saw me using it adored my foldable bag.  They all wanted to buy one.  If they were excited about seeing my foldable bags, I’m sure they would go crazy (like I did) over the fashionable foldable bag range I saw during my holiday.

So in my effort to buy more of these fashionable foldable bags for my friends,  I searched the internet for “foldable bags”.  There are several brands available carrying great designs. However, there is no niche store specializing on these fashionable and stylish foldable bags!  I have to go to different websites to compare and shop…

Until, I founded the Foldablebags.com  It is an eco friendly website where you can find a collection of fashionable reusable foldable bags from different merchants.  Now, it is easier to buy these wonderful foldable bags online.

My team has added an Eco Store as well where you can buy, compare and search for more eco bags and other eco friendly products.
