Honestly my favorite thing about being green is looking into my kids eyes and knowing that I am doing something good for their future.

My favorite thing about being green is that I am now more aware of my actions and I know that even the littlest things can make a huge difference. It's made me a better person.

One of my favorite reasons for being green is that we are saving our planet for the future generations and teaching our children to do the same. Go Green!! Anderson Indiana

My favorite thing about being green is the impact it has on my children. If we are not green our kids won't have a chance to see all the amazing wonders of this world. I think what you are doing is incredible!!!

I love knowing that we are helping keep our home clean. I've always hated wasting or throwing out useful items. By reusing things we save money and the environment.

Looking forward to receiving your bag. I have just started using the reusable bags and they are much more convenient that I expected.

My favorite thing about being green is that it's the natural way to do things! Teresa, I can't wait to see you when you come to our Paper (n)Or Plastic art show in May. I love what you do.

I am so excited that our largest grocery chain in this area will, next week, start charging for plastic bags to encourage people to go green. I would love to show off one of the Green Bag Lady bags (and make some of my own). We should all set a good example for our children, so they can teach their children.

My favorite thing about being green is that I'm making a difference for a better future. I've not only became green by recycling, not using plastic bottles anymore, but It's also caught on with the rest of my family. I love what your doing to help everyone become green. Great job. Your bags are beautiful and I would be honored to be part of your campaign.

The best thing about being Green is it feels really good and also that I'm teaching my children right about doing our part in reducing our carbon footprint!

Also Bagette Dad I don't have a green bag and I would love one for our grocery shopping and trips to the libary. You did send me one of the Birthday bags to wrap gifts in. It's so very lovely!

Thank you so much! Have a lovely day!

My favorite thing about being green is that I'm slowing getting more people involved..my neighbors see my rain barrel, and think about getting their own; my husband finally remembers to use the canvas shopping bags when he goes to the store for me; my son thinks it fun to use the reel mower; I see more people walking to stores, church, etc.

thank you!

LOVE your bags! I'm on a mission to collect "unique" green bags and use them to inspire the "cool kids" that green in the new in-thing! So far, so good. Green is becoming trendy and popular in socal!! Your bags are the perfect fit for those who follow the beat of their own drummer - who want to be earth-conscious and still stand apart from the crowd! THANKS!!!battgirlATearthlinkDOTnet

Hi - I love your blog. I am "training" my 3 girls to remind me each time we shop to get our bags. We have "smattering", one from a trade show, 1 from a camp, and just some we get whenever we can. My kids even help bag and always let the checker know - We have our own bags. Would love to add 1 more to our collection. SBK

I think my favorite thing about being green is the ability to affect the next generation and swing the tide back to a more simple time. When I was a kid, I attended an Earth Day event for Girl Scouts. That one day completely impacted my life in so many ways. I just found your site but am so glad to have found patterns for bags! I've heard of people getting their flour in bags and then reusing them, but I've not found that source yet. Plus, when I shop for produce, I do not like to use the plastic bags - so I don't, but sometimes a bag would be so much handier! Thank you for saving the world, one bag at a time! :) melissa[dot]schnieders[at]gmail[dot]com

Fave thing about green? Less trash in the trash can! We compost our garbage, and recycle what we can.

scott hoffman said...

Being green is the easiest way to make me feel better. I want to make a positive difference for this planet. When I walk the dog, I take a extra trash bags and a different route each time to keep the whole neighborhood clean of trash. This seems to have caught on with other walkers in the neighborhood as well. I keep the route changing especially on the well traveled roads. I try to do my best. I win all around. the dog and I walk for our health and the neighborhood gets clean as well.

Finally! I have been taking my own bags to the grocery since the early 1990's when I lived in Oregon. I also ride my bike whenever possible to do my errands and to go to work. I am really glad to see this effort taking off. You all are doing a wonderful thing in helping a worthwhile cause! Thanks! skymaidn(at)yahoo(dot)com

I would love to have one of your bags and would love to take photos of it in use around the country. As a military family, we move and travel often. I'm making many changes in my life to live greener and would love for one of your bags to become part of that effort.

My favorite thing about recycling is when I have to empty my recycling bins 2 or 3 times more than I empty the garbage cans!! And my recycling bins are twice the size of my garbage cans!!! I feel like it is a huge accomplishment!

I can honestly say that I am not all the way green, but I always shudder when I see people throw away (in the trash), things that can be recycled.
I've been helping my Mom to recycle more and she doesn't have to take out her trash as much.

Is a produce bag the same as a normal bag? If so, I don't qualify...
I love being green because it is right. I'm glad it's becoming trendy because however people become aware and make change, through trends or whatever, doesn't really matter. What matters is taking action.
I also love being green because it's long lasting and beautiful.
