Why My Purse is Green

Because I believe…

  • the fastest, most effective way to stop polluters is by pressuring them in the marketplace
  • women can be the world’s most powerful economic and environmental force if we intentionally shift our spending to the best green products and services
  • women have the power right now to solve many of our most serious environmental problems by using our green purses to make a difference
  • women must act – intentionally, collectively, and with the full force of our purse power behind us – if we hope to leave our children and grandchildren a better world.

    Let's Party!

    There’s a great new free on-line portal just opening its virtual doors that helps you give a party or go to one … as long as there’s a good intention behind it.

    Party4APurpose.com” bills itself as a “philanthropic catalyst.” In other words, it wants to help people who are organizing any kind of event – birthdays, dinners, concerts, reunions, potlucks, bike rides, and mores – give it greater meaning. Want to raise money for the homeless? Organize a “pick-up party” to clean up the local creek? Invite folks to learn about human rights? The site allows anyone to easily post, create or find charitable events by price, type, purpose, and location.

    Take a look. You’ll find all kinds of “parties,” from free happy hours to poker nights and galas. The one thing they all have in common is some element of greater good. “By creating a platform that makes it easy to party with a purpose any day of the week,” say the site’s founders, “we believe that over time we can have a significant impact on…how individuals socialize and how organizations communicate around their mission.”

    What a great way to promote philanthropy, civic participation, and volunteerism!
