Every year, tens of thousands of whales, birds, seals, and turtles die from contact with ocean-borne plastic bags. The animals may mistake the bags for food, such as jellyfish, or simply become entangled. Plastic bags can take up to 1,000 years to break down, so even when an animal dies and decays after ingesting a bag, the plastic re-enters the environment, posing a continuing threat to wildlife.

Be honest, are you as good as you could be about not using plastic bags? Might it help if you kept bags in your car that were super cute?
One of my personal goals is to get better about bringing a bag in to EVERY store I go in. We have improved with the grocery store but I still forget when I go to CVS or Macy's.

I recently found a way to help my school while helping the environment.
I found this company named Mixed Bag Designs. Not only are their products terrific and affordable but they will do a fundraiser for your school and give back 50%! Let your PTA know about this opportunity. My school is signed up to do one next year and I am confident it will be a big money-maker.

I contacted Mixed Bag Designs and they were nice enough to send me some bags to giveaway to my loyal followers!! first giveaway!
