Earth-Friendly Friday

I got a package in the mail from Green Works on Tuesday. It had this sturdy tote bag in it, which I will use when I go grocery shopping - and save the landfills from a few hundred plastic bags over the course of one year. But another really cool thing about this bag is that it was a reward I got for submitting an Earth-friendly idea. How EZ-smeazy is that?

And this bag was designed by Hollywood actress and mom, Jennie Garth. The Green Bag by Jennie Garth is made from 100 percent recycled cotton and is reusable.

Green Works is a great company so, if you get a chance, check out their website.

(Hope you all have a fantastic "green" holiday weekend!!!)

Very cute bag! What idea did you submit?
I use Greenworks, too or another similar product, Bright Green, for cleaning. I'm so glad that companies are giving accessible greener products for consumers.

My idea was using recycled lumber to build community benches at parks and public areas. My husband has built a lot of benches and chairs out of recycled lumber and people love to stop and sit and chat. I thought it would help build community.

I love your park bench idea. We've been using cloth tote bags for shopping for about a year now, and it's so easy and such a great idea. Thanks for getting the word out!
