I knew I had to rush to Target or Whole Foods to get a cute reusable bag soon. I have to show my kids that they shouldn't waste plastic bags. In fact, San Francisco is going to ban them and Whole Foods doesn't carry them anymore. More stores will follow suit within the next few years. Also, with the economy, it will be a great way for them to cut costs and use the "environment" excuse.
After watching the Planet Green channel all night, I decided to do a little research on the latest and greatest in reusable bags. I am also going to challenge myself to not be wasteful in my makeup usage, recycle each container and start looking for environmental friendly products.
If you live in LA or wish you did, these bags are pretty blah but make a statement. They are $28 each as they should be. You are paying for the name.
Breast Cancer AwarenessLora would love this one! These two bags were found on www.awarenesstshirts.com
I think this bag will inspire a few to quit using plastic bags! I am sure that Leslie will be sporting one after Sephora opens in Tucson on my son's birthday - November 14th!

For the environment, I use less water in my child's bath, I tell my boys to turn off the water when they brush their teeth, we recycle, we turn off lights when we are not in the room (we could be better though) and we have switched almost all of our lights to low energy bulbs, use a programmable thermostat, use a time of use electric meter, water down our soap when it is low and other little things. I am sure there are a lot of improvements we could make and I intend to do that in 2009.
