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.

    Planning a Trip to Europe? Ride a Bike When You Get There.

    According to, there are currently more than 760,000 commuters cycling to work regularly in the UK alone. This two-wheeled trend is happening all over Europe, with bike hire schemes becoming one of the most popular ways for vacationers and holiday makers to explore a city. 

    Because hiring or renting a bike is so flexible, travelers can design their own personal tour and see a city at their own pace. Because biking uses pedal power rather than fossil fuels, it's also a great way to see the sites without contributing to air pollution or climate change. Travel comparison site momondo, the sponsors of this post, have created this helpful round up of five top European cities and their top tips on how to make the most of their bike hire schemes.

    I visited Chicago over the winter (VERY cold!) and was impressed with how many bike events they have throughout the year, especially in the colder months! Impressive!

    I have enjoyed bike riding while visiting tourist spots in Amsterdam. It was really a nice experience. I always think that it is really a great idea to get up close with local culture and lifestyle of any tourist city. A nice idea.

    You're so right. Biking really puts you into the middle of the city - much better than taking a bus!
