Earth Day 2009 is on April 22 – next Wednesday. In celebration, we are giving away our beautiful blue tote bags for free to anyone who stops by and visits our 5 Seaward Road location between 8 am and 5 pm on Earth Day.
Our hope is that people will use these bags in place of plastic bags that they would normally throw away. Many businesses are now rewarding their customers for reusing bags with contests or money off savings.
For example our team member Danica uses her tote bags each week to carry her groceries. In the process, she saves at least 312 plastic bags each year from entering the waste cycle (it could be more since the plastic bags usually hold less). There’s no decision between paper or plastic!
Some other uses for our totes:
Each bag has two large side pockets and it can easily be folded to fit inside another bag or pocketbook.
