Info From Envirosax
You’ve heard all about “Going Green” in the last decade. You may carry your reusable bag wherever you go, or you may be entirely new for this change. Everyone is at a different stage in the “reusable walk,” – and we get that.
Envirosax has been the leader in the reusable bag industry for 15 years – actually nearly 16! That was before a journalist once coined the phrase, “Going Green”, before governments realized plastic in the oceans was causing harm to marine life and before recycling bins were even a thing. Hard to imagine? Well, we have come a long way.
But one thing is constant, and that is Envirosax’s quality. The founders are still using the same bags from the original batch run of prototypes! Our bags are made to last and to replace 1500 plastic bags per year. We do not compromise on quality and still follow the same formula we did 16 years ago with quality fabric and stitching, printed with eco-friendly dyes.
Oh, and we do not believe in “Fast Fashion”. We know who makes our bags, we are transparent in our factories and we pay our workers a fair wage. This is one aspect of the fashion industry that we are passionate about. Envirosax is something that you can feel good about in so many ways.
It’s all about you. But it’s also about the environment. If we can help you to reduce waste and plastics that are destroying the environment, then we know we have done our job.
With over 15 years in the eco-industry, the team behind Envirosax understands better than anyone how harmful plastics are to the oceans. And we once set out to fix this problem – in the most stylish way!
Anyone who knows me well, knows that I am a sucker for stationary, notebooks and planners. When I found out about Archer and Olives Watercolor Notebooks, I was over the moon with excitement! They also carry planners, pens, marker, stickers and more…happiness at your fingertips.

Because of the very light texture, you can use a variety of watercolor brush and pen options including your favorite felt-tip pens, brush pens, and more. It even works well with a lot of water
If you share our obsession for pretty paper goods, intentionally designing your days, and creating margin in your life, we’ll be fast friends! At Archer & Olive, we create handcrafted journals and planners that help you plan your days with intention.
Perfect for home or on the go. No need to drag on the iron and ironing board!
Info From Iron in a Bottle
Years ago, my mother, Sheri, gave up on ironing and introduced me to a homemade wrinkle releaser. It was a game changer. No more irons, no more hassle, and, best of all, no more wrinkled clothes.In 2017, I set out to share the magic with the world.The goal? To make a modern wrinkle releaser that worked, smelled great and was natural. I named the company after my parents because they inspire me every day.After testing multiple formulas, scents, and natural solutions for wrinkles, Tom & Sheri’s “Iron in a Bottle” became a reality. Ironing is from the Dark Ages. Join the #wrinklerevolution to save time, feel better about the clothes you wear, and live your life #wrinklefree.-Austin Eudaly
