The Gift of Green: Evirosax Giveaway


You know what gift is almost as great as something super luxe? It's a gift that can be used over and over again. Sure diamonds are a girls best friend but it's also great to get something practical and that can really be useful. Evirosax combines all of my favorite things: green, bags and style!

Here is more about them from their website:

The philosophy of Envirosax is to help create a better future for our planet by spreading the environmental message through colour and script using the Envirosax eco-friendly reusable bag as the vehicle.

Evirosax is proud to help protect the environment for tomorrow’s generation by providing an eco-friendly alternative to disposable shopping bags that have caused so much damage to the environment worldwide. Envirosax bags are lightweight, portable, waterproof and each one holds the equivalent of two supermarket plastic bags thanks to reinforced seams.

We believe in environmental sustainability. Plastic bags clog drains and cause flooding. They pollute rivers and streams, killing animals and destroying plantlife. They take years to photodegrade and have a very short life span. Envirosax provide a compelling alternative to the plastic bags which are doing so much damage to our planet.

Evirosax donates a percentage of its sales to charities and non-profit organisations dedicated to the preservation of the environment.

Evirosax has so many great designs for the whole family from the to die for Sesame Street bags for the kids to great neutral bags that are perfect for the guys. Evirosax also offers a variety of products such as water bottles, value sets of bags and so much more.

Being green is such a huge movement that is spreading across society, one that I know is very important in sustaining our world and resources. In fact many of the grocery stores I go to have started the practice of trying to ween consumers out of using plastic bags by many initiatives such as charging for plastic or rewarding shoppers who bring reusable bags.


Evirosax
bags are a huge hit with celebrities who are also green minded! Such celebrities as Justin Timberlake, Jessica Biel, Jessica Alba, Jennifer Garner, and countless others all tote their fashionable Evirosax bags! Evirosax has also been featured in such magazines as: People, Marie Claire, Elle, Shape and so many more.



My Review:

I was so lucky to be able to review a great product from Evirosax. It was so hard to make my final decision because there are so many great designs! I finally decided on The Linen Bag 2 from Evirosax's Organic Series.

The Linen Bag 2 came in a separate pouch in which you could roll up the bag and store when not in use. This is perfect for shopping and throwing it into your handbag because you never know when you will need it!

The dimensions of this bag are 50cm x 42cm when the bag is unrolled and a compact 10.2cm x 14cm when the bag is rolled up in the pouch.


I love that this bag is so roomy and that it can fit many items. Although this is a great shopping bag I love using it for many other purposes as well.

This bag is super strong and I was quite surprised at how much this bag can actually carry. This bag can carry a very impressive 10 kg! So it carry pretty much anything you may throw into it!

Evirosax has been so kind to offer one The Giveaway Diva reader the chance to win an Evirosax of their choice!

Neiman Marcus Christmas Book: Lots to Love

Have any of you started Christmas shopping yet? Although there is less than a month left I still feel like I have lots of time, but I know that I'm just kidding myself because during the holidays the days seem to magically disappear until it is too late and I'm fighting tooth and nail with all the other shoppers who put shopping off to the last minute.

While I hate trying to beat the overwelming waves of shoppers I do love flipping through the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book I love the amazing graphics as well as the drool worthy picks on each page. I love that they have such a great theme of animals this year....is it wrong that I kinda secretly lust over getting my hands on those furry critters almost as much as the lovely bags and jewelry that is featured beside it?


This amazing ruby red Nancy Gonzalez Crocodile Bag retails at $3,400. Does anyone else find it kind of ironic that a zebra is being featured next to a croc bag? I have horror video clips of crocs lunging out of the water to make a tasty meal out of a baby zebra running through my head...wonder if the stylists had the same idea.

If you got this lifesize playhouse that is actually edible you better hope that your family loves gingerbread! It is handcrafted from 381 lbs. of gourmet gingerbread and 517 lbs. of royal icing by the confectioners at Dylan’s Candy Bar. Standing 6.6 feet high by 5.25 feet wide by 4.1 feet deep, it includes giant cookies, lollipops, gummies, mints, gumdrops and a candy-encrusted roof, plus a lollipop tree inside. Price for years worth of cavities: $15,000

I would love to get my hands on this amazing one of a kind diamond charm bracelet that commemorates Neiman Marcus' tradition of his and her gifts. But sadly I don't have $248,000 dollars lying around and I doubt I'll find enough change in my couch to even buy one charm.


Got a swimming pool? Does your swimming pool lack a certain pizazz? Well if you happen to have 1.5 million dollars (!!!) burning a hole in your pocket you can get a privately commissioned art installation by renowned glass sculptor Dale Chihuly measuring up to 22 by 12 feet -- at the bottom of your swimming pool. For that kind of money I would be so afraid to even jump in my pool in the fear of possibly breaking the glass art!!!

So what do you think of these gifts? Would you ever consider getting anything off Neiman Marcus' Christmas Book?
