An email from Kuwait. . .
Hi! My name is Sasha Werner. I'm an Oregonian, currently living in Kuwait, and ran across your blog. I just want to say what an awesome thing it is you are doing!!!!! I lived in Germany for the past 2 1/2 years, and got into the habit of using cloth bags at the stores. I collected SO many, and was glad that I brought some over here!( the others are in my storage, waiting to be sent back home to Oregon!) I will honestly NEVER go back! I'm looking at different kinds of cloth veggie bags now, to eliminate even more plastic at the grocery. It's amazing what fabulous things you can find online! :) Kuwait is a beautiful country, but SO wasteful! You couldn't even imagine how many plastic bags you'll see a day, floating on the breeze. It's very sad! So, I finally got tired of the wastefulness, said I don't CARE what people here think, I'm taking my cloth bags to the grocery store. The bagger was VERY confused at first (he tried to put them in a plastic bag!) but I felt SO much better for doing it! It's people like you who are going to help make this world a better place, even if it's bit by bit, or bag by bag! :) I also love that you have great tips for helping out the environment on your blog! So thank you for what you're doing, keep up the good work! I appreciate that you're helping make the world a better place for my kids, and all of our future generations! You're a wonderful person! Sasha Lynn
