200th FREEBIE + (almost) 40,000 Bags!!!

Guess what? This is our 200th Freebie on the blog! Aaaaaand, we have now given out almost 40,000 bags!** WHAT? It seems like 2008 was yesterday and I decided to make a few bags out of fabric I had lying around. Flash forward to today…Green Bag Lady now has 10 chapters in the USA and 6 international ones. Crazy, crazy. Never in a million years would I have dreamed we would be here when making those first few bags.

So, thanks to EVERYONE that has helped, especially my Nashville ladies, in particular Bagette April who was the very first person to reach out and offer to help. Thanks April, I love you! :) And, to Bagette Ann who has taken over the Nashville Chapter and has done an incredible job!

To the coordinators of all the other chapters, Bagettes Pat, Jen, Lisa, Liz, Dorene, Dina, Sara, Bell, Barbara, Miranda, Monique, Ingeborg, Linda, Anna, Helen, Jo, Sam, and Rachel, my unwavering THANKS for all that you have done, the many hours you have dedicated to making bags and helping to spread the word! A shout out to Meg, Shanna and Nancy who are forming chapters (updates soon!).

And, who can forget YOU! The people who come to read the blog, enter the freebies and have chosen fabric over plastic/paper time and time again. THANK YOU SO MUCH for making this all possible and being willing to tote our creations everywhere with you and sending us photos to share.

In appreciation, we have 25 bags to give away. Yep, 25!!! I found this great recycle symbol fabric while shopping in California and bought several yards just for this!

Who would like one of these great celebratory bags?? PLEASE share this freebie with everyone you know, we would like to get as many new people as possible carrying bags!

To enter to win a BAG (open to everyone, world-wide):
•LEAVE A COMMENT, IN THE COMMENT LEAVE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS IN THIS FORMAT: name(at)something(dot)com it is important to spell out DOT and AT so you don't get spam, if you DO NOT leave an email address, you will not be entered in the freebie.

•DEADLINE FOR THE FREEBIE IS 9pm (PST) Monday, Sept 12. (winners will be notified no later than Sept 13 via email and here on the blog so CHECK BACK!)

Don't forget to leave us your email! We will only contact you if you win.

We will randomly pick 25 people to win bags.

One entry per person. If you enter more than once, all your entries will be disqualified.

We will ship shopping bags internationally. You MUST use English for your comments. Do the best you can. Non-English comments will be removed.

Good luck!!!!! Teresa
