Stop Using Plastic... Use Envirosax! (& reuse, & reuse, & reuse) March 18 2019

Using plastic bags without recycling or reusing them is about as cool as tossing an empty beer can out of the window as you drive down a back road, singing along to the newest Weezer album. Sadly, many plastic bags end up rotting their 1,000 year life-span away in a landfill surrounded by other one-use items or else tumbling over in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch day after day, threatening the well-being of our already suffering oceans and their innocent occupants.

Our society can be disgustingly wasteful at times so be sure to do your part amid the plastic revolution to ensure your footprint is as unremarkable as possible. We have many options for reusable bags in our store, one of our favorites being Envirosax!

Envirosax’s eye-catching designs are crafted with your style and coolness in mind, so not only will you get compliments on your kindness towards our Mother but you will undoubtedly receive a couple of brownie points from your fad-fancied friends strutting the sidewalk or from the checkout guy at Orange Street Food Farm as you unravel your fashionable, spunky and sensible Envirosax grocer bag.

Carry your groceries proudly and make sure everyone knows you live a tier above those one-time-use plastic bag toting degenerates walking between store and vehicle with a burden of shame heavier than anything you can fit into a bag. Speaking of which, these Envirosax bags have been tested to carry 44lbs without popping a stitch! They are strong, durable, lightweight and water-resistant.

Thanks to our mysterious and versatile name, we here at The Green Light have occasionally been mistaken for a medical marijuana dispensary. While I can admit to periodically grazing through the Green Giant’s backyard myself, the only thing we're rolling up in this store are Envirosaxs! When your bag is not in use, roll it up and clip it shut before tossing it back into your purse, satchel, fanny-pack, glove compartment, cup holder, kitchen drawer, or, for those lacking a certain trait of basic organization, onto the backseat of your eternally untidy car.

Leaders in Leather Hand tooled bags and wallets

Leaders in Leather is an international leather goods manufacturer founded by Chilean designer, Ricardo Zuniga. The label's trendsetting handbags and leather goods are functional with a contemporary sensibility. Their original designs are inspired by traditional Paraguayan tooling which has been passed down through generations of artisans.  The entire process from the tanning of the hides, to the smallest finishing details, is exquisitely displayed in each finished masterpiece. Leaders in Leather originally started in a cottage industry so that both men and women could stay at home to work and take care of their families. Now most of the work is done in their own factory. They have had three generations of families making these awesome bags and wallets.   All products are handmade and hand tooled.  Leaders in Leather uses a high quality, eco-friendly European vegetable dye for all of their items.
