Envirosax Bags: the perfect gift for women

They're not romantic, they're not luxurious and as a concept, they're not particularly unique. Yet reusable Envirosax shopping bags are the perfect Christmas present for any woman on your list for three reasons. 1. Envirosax bags are built fairly large to hold lots of stuff - whether it's groceries, workout gear, books, whatever - up to 44 lbs. or two plastic bags of groceries. Plus the double stitch design ensures they last. 2. Envirosax bags look great. These are designer bags that are definitely 'on trend' with new stunning bags every season. Take your pick from florals, romantics, the season's hottest animal prints, or go retro with Sesame Street Envirosax. 3. These bags roll up to the size of a piece of sushi and come with an Envirosax pouch option to keep them in - all organized, all in one place for easy storage and transport. For a gift that's guaranteed to be well received, we vote Envirosax. For more, click here.

5 Reasons to use Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Shampoo

Love the fresh smell of apples? Want shiny, squeaky clean hair? Then like us, you'll love Phillip Adam's Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Shampoo. The use of apple cider vinegar is an age old method of removing soap residue from hair after washing. Former Vancouver hair dresser, Adam, with more than 50 years of experience in the beauty industry has incorporated the soap and vinegar in one shampoo to achieve this. Here are five good reasons to use Adam's specially formulated vinegar hair shampoo. 1. The perfectly balanced formula automatically adjusts the ph balance in your hair to help control dandruff. 2. The apple cider vinegar component of the shampoo rinses out hair more thoroughly and faster than most other shampoos, leaving hair squeaky clean and shiny - verging on glossy - and at the same time using less water and taking less time. 3. This biodegradable formula is proven safe for use on coloured hair and has been used in salons for 13 years. 4. It does not contain potentially harmful ingredients like parabens and sodium laurel sulfate (SLS) and is free of harsh preservatives, artificial colourings and petro-chemicals. 5. The yummy natural apple scent smells amazing - according to one writer, it's as if it's 'distilled from a crate of Granny Smiths'. You can't get fresher than that! For more, click here.
