Envirosax have a whole line of bags just for kids and they make great eco-alternatives to Easter baskets, like this adorable pink bunny bag at Stubby Pencil Studio. The bags are pretty big, 17 3/4 inches by 15 3/4 inches and will hold the equivalent of 2 plastic grocery store bags full of stuff.
The Envirosax kids bags are perfect for filling with Easter goodies then reusing for school, sports, as an overnight bag or a shopping bag just for the kids. Each kid could get their very own bag as they come in several designs other than the bunny, including: Piggy, Rusty, Dino, Marshmallow, Flower Power, Tubby or Wingnut. Designs both boys and girls will love.
The bags can also easily be filled with many eco-goodies from Stubby Pencil Studio, like natural soy crayons, crayon rocks, sketch pads or notepads made from 100 % post consumer recycled paper, or one of the other many eco-toys and art supplies they carry. They even have Yummy Earth organic fruit lollipops.
Still want to go the traditional route and use a basket? The Envirosax kids bags roll up into a tiny little roll that could fit in your pocket or easily into an Easter basket.
My daughter is going to be thrilled with the pink bunny bag. I can see her stuffing it with all kinds of stuff, taking it shopping with us, or packing it full of goodies for overnight stays with friends.
