Wednesday, September 2, 2009
Mark your calendar...... there's a new holiday this month and you can celebrate it everyday. September 12, 2009 will be the first official celebration of International Plastic Bag Free Day!
As you may know, I make reusable bags out of "single-use" plastic shopping bags. You may wonder then, how can she support a plastic bag free day? The answer is simple. I began creating FatBottomBags in an effort to reduce the amount of plastic bags that are going to the landfills or worse than that, winding up in our oceans!
So far, with the help of my customers and contributors, I've been able to keep over 3500 plastic bags out of the waste stream! Just think how many you can eliminate by making this easy change to reusable bags.
Remember to reduce, reuse, recycle and respect our environment, because when we all do our small part we can change the big picture!
