Julie Melanie is the creative mind and nurturing soul behind Enviro Bag Evolution. A trained seamstress, Julie Melanie creates hand-made storage bags for disabled people who use a variety of mobility aids.
“The inspiration behind my product comes from my personal experience as a walker and scooter user. I rely on these devices for mobility and daily activities - groceries, banking, and even laundry. They help me do my life errands and allow me to live a very independent life. However, my walker and scooter have one major shortcoming - they lack easily accessible space. And as they say…necessity is the mother of invention. The product I am creating is a storage bag to hold your water bottle, cell phone, glasses, keys or whatever you need at your fingertips.
Each Enviro Bag Evolution product is handcrafted from recycled fabrics to fit wheelchairs, scooters and walkers.”
