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.

    Take a look at the dangers wild animals face from plastic bags...

    Bird in plasticThis quick slide show gives 35 reasons why plastic bags should be banned.

    Among them: Nearly 200 different species of sea life, including whales, dolphins, turtles, and seals, plus thousands of birds, die every year because they mistake discarded bags for food or get so entangled in the bags they can't survive.

    You can get a reusable shopping bag at your grocery store for only $.99 or $1.99 at most. Buy six of them for less than ten bucks and do the animals a favor.

    So sad. I am proud to say we recycle our grocery bags when we do bring them home. I think about this issue everyday every time I see one of these bags. I love using my reusable bags especially when I think about saving little birdies like this little guy.

    I had no idea that a lot of animals suffer and die because of plastic bags. This info will surely be an eye opener to many of us that use plastic bags practically every day. Thank you also for the tip on using reusable plastics.

    Yes, the impact on animals is fierce. That's one of the reasons why using reusable cloth bags makes such a difference.

    Taking your Business to the next level

    Camping provides a great temporary escape from the stresses and dangers of suburban and urban life. However, the camping experience is fraught with its own set of dangers. The wise camper must take these into account and prepare in advance how to make safety in the woods a high priority and counter the inherent risks.
