Although Blog Action Day technically ended 30 minutes ago for me, I’ve decided that I’m going to continue with a little offering. For the first
100 people who requests one, I will send them a free Green Bag.
Why a Green Bag? It’s earth friendly, it’s reusable, it’s roomy, it’s sturdy, and it may net you a compliment or two.
Just so you get an idea of how roomy these bags are, it only took 4 green bags to manage what would normally take 7 plastic bags. With one bag, you should be able to comfortably fit 2-3 plastic bags’ worth of stuff.
In fact, the picture above was taken after a typical trip to the grocery store. The Green Bags are mine and the plastic bags are my sister’s. We purchased roughly the same amount of food, however, she required 9 plastic bags to my 3 Green Bags.
When it was time to unpack the groceries, not a single Green Bag had tipped over or spilled anything, however, more than half of her bags fell over and her Ritz crackers box was smashed to kingdom come. 🙂
Want a Green Bag? All you need to do is contact me with your mailing address and I’ll send it to you.
Of course, there are a few restrictions…
- One per household.
- I can’t ship internationally, so you must use a US mailing address (sorry to my overseas friends)
- Since I’ll be purchasing these bags from a local merchant, they may run out of stock — in that event, I’ll send the equivalent of a Green Bag (may be a different brand)
And don’t worry, I won’t be snail mailing you anything else and you won’t find yourself on any strange mailing lists. This is simply my version of a random act of kindness. 🙂
