Little Texas Bag Makers!

This is so stinking cute, thanks for sending Keri! :) And, Keri, is in the process of forming a chapter in the Waco area of Texas if anyone is interested in helping! Teresa
My nieces made bags for our pastor and associate pastor. On Sunday morning they got to speak in front of the congregation and explain about the bags.

Ha Teresa,

The translation (on the poster above) is : Let us do it, we change the world , one bag at a time

I use this poster by local events, scholarship and open days community center

Last Sunday there was a local event in Tilburg, I was there with the Green Bag Lady in our  design shop (kunstlicht)
and  in 3 other shops en 1 stall we use the same  poster to publicize The Green bag lady in Tilburg. Its going very well, I met there  by chance, two enthusiastic ladys from Texel, that was very nice, they promise me to make pictures from this local event and send it to me. When I have pictures, I send it to you.

National Geographic declared the month of June to the “stop met Plastic” month, they asked people not to buy 6 plastic products : plastic bags , bottles, cups, straws, cotton swabs and cutlery. Every Monday evening the television has a program about this, I like that kind of initiatives.

Ha Teresa,

Event Saturday!

Little Girl and I had a great time giving out 100 bags at our local Natural Grocers on Saturday. Everyone was so great and wonderful. It might be kind of like preaching to the choir to give bags at a store like this but people were still really excited and used the bags instead of the boxes they have at the end of the aisles. YAY! Thanks for letting us come give bags Natural Grocers! Teresa
