Wow what a great giveaway! One green think I'm doing is not using my dryer for as long as I can before winter. So far it's been a month without it.

Liz said...

My husband and I built an earthbermed house. Very very energy efficient. Thank you for what you do!

Elicia Allen said...

In our home we like to do our part by ensure EVERYTHING that is recyclable is being done so. It's amazing how little trash you actually have. We have also done many of upgrades for the engery and planet saving.

Thanks Green Bag Lady!!

Addy said...

You so kindly sent me a bag last year during the May giveaway, and I have been using it ever since. I LOVE using fabric bags at the grocery store. Not only do they reduce waste, but they just feel better to carry! I have one more that I made myself, but I need to increase my fabric bag collection. You are so generous. Thanks!

Very, very cool! I would love one of these and I would definitely make another one.

Hm, living in Oregon seems to make it easy to go rather green.

I'm not sure that this qualifies, but as we are working on getting our yard into shape we are researching and planning to use plants that are native to our area. I'm also hoping to convince hubby to get me a laundry line so I can dry clothes outside instead of using the dryer.

Thanks for the chance and for all you are doing!

Tara said...

How awesome! I grow as much of our food as possible, keep chickens, recycle as much as humanly possible and try to ride my bike as many places as I can. There's so much more to do, but every little bit helps! Thanks for the chance(s) to win

Oh, My Darling said...

Love the bags! I've been really conserving my electric in my apartment, to save money and be green. The electric company actually owed ME money three months in a row! omydarlingblog(at)gmail(dot)com

Aubrey said...

We try to make as much of our own stuff as possible. (food from scratch, clothes, household items, toys, etc....) I do think carefully about the "stuff" I buy and the impact on the Earth, but I also think a lot about the people who make that stuff and how they are treated and paid. To me, making sure people are treated right is just as important as making sure our environment is treated right.

One of the things I love about going green is that most people think is gives less options, but i think it gives me more, how many beautiful patterned plastic bags are there? All our supermarket bags are fabric now and we find recycling and reusing saves us money too.

Kimberly said...

Wow! How amazing that you are giving away so may bags. Awesome. We have switched over to cloth napkins instead of paper. I love it. Even though it adds to the laundry. klumapas(at)gmail(dot)com

momma rae said...

oh, i one a green bag lady bag last year!! sadly, it has disappeared from my stash, but i'm sure someone somewhere is using it. i would give both of these bags away as i would like to encourage family members to stop using the nasty plastic ones. thanks for the opportunity! ;)

Su-sieee! Mac said...

Hello Green Bag Lady! I have market bags stashed in the car and, in the hallway closet, and often times strewn on the hall floor. I head to the farmers markets and produce stands with a bunch of plastics in my bags. I can not ever have enough green bags. You're the one that got me going last year. :-) Thanks!

What a wonderful idea to make and share bags! I love all my bags and always "need" more. I use them for grocery shopping, at the library, and to take changes of clothes and toys to the grandparent's homes... I will be making more this summer :)

Cool idea! My greenery starts with being a cloth nappy user, we use eco bulbs, I make a lot of my own clothing and use a lot of vintage and second hand fabrics, I make some of my own cleaners, make my own nappy wipes and generally try to make everything I give, we also grow veges and fruit and my lovely husband always picks up litter when we are out and about. Thanks for an awesome giveaway I will love using your bag in NZ and making one for a friend. I love the pay-it-forward giveaway I'm doing one too! makeitgiveit(at)gmail(dot)com

I think our every day life is pretty green. We are in the bush and on water delivery so we are very frugal with our water usage. Lunches are stored in containers and bagged. I store tubs for shopping in my car.

Wow, 100 winners, I like those odds. This is such a good idea. I always use my own bags when shopping - if I forget or don't have enough I try to carry it without a bag! I'm always surprised and how many people still use the shop plastic carriers!

oh wow! love your giveaway. I have made a couple jeans market bags, and I collect bags to use for shopping and for use at garage sales and such too. I also make my own laundry soap, bleach, fabric softener too, I rarely use paper towels, and I buy sponges and scrubbies made from recycled products to name a few of my green things

we recycle as much as our country is up to taking with domestic stuff, then i recycle lots of stuff at home. we make our own firestartes without the fuel. i recycle clothes all the time. i even use stale bread to make paprika/curry/garlic/ croutons for the children to nibble on. nothing goes to waste...

Debbie said...

Very generous of you. My going green involves recycling a lot of things: cardboard, bottles, jars, cans, paper, food boxes; doing away with water bottles (I carry my filtered water in a rubbermaid bottle that can be washed at home.); replacing household lightbulbs with energy efficient ones and of course, using cloth shopping bags.

Amanda ~ A Crafty Fox said...

how fun! I am going green by using cloth diapers and laundering them myself and hanging them to dry.

Thanks for the fun giveaway!
Amandaewoodruff(At)yahoo(dot)com

Poppyprint said...

Well, if that's not the best giveaway odds ever, I don't know what is!! We're a pretty green family, but I know we could do better: all food trimmings/waste are composted and then used on our gardens, all curbside recycling items sorted and put out for p/u weekly, additional non-pick up items are sorted and dropped off at the centre monthly, Scout bottle drives 2Xyear, water conservation always (tap off while brushing, necessity flushing..etc.), low flow showerhead, plastic over windows in winter, furnace set to 65F. Lots more, but you get the picture! PLUS, we always use fabric shopping bags!!! Thanks!
krista(dot)hennebury(at)shaw(dot)ca

Lisa said...

You are so wonderful to do this!! My sister-in-law is very green and recycles everything, so I am following her example. My family and I have changed all of our lightbulbs to the green bulbs that use much less power. I am using what re-usable shopping bags I can find, which I love when I go shopping. We are turning off lights when we leave a room and recycling more. I've really started getting in to it! Thanks!

Love it! We've gone green and used cloth diapers and wipes with our daughter (and our next little one due in Oct!). We buy local, use no paper goods around the house, and reuse as much as possible! A lot of it is for being green, more of it is for being ethical in what we buy, where it's made, and who it's made by. Hope I win a bag! Thanks for a great giveaway!

GREAT! That's all I can say of this giveaway ;)
I use preferably reusable bags, take my bike whenever possible (even in the rain), grow some of my own fruits and vegetables, eco friendly lightbulbs, cloth napkins and handtowels, composting, when the kids where small I made their food myself, breastfeeding, etc

Marcia W. said...

We are already green for most things -- growing organic vegetables and fruits, as well as composting. We live on a cattle farm and my brother won conservation farmer of the year. We reuse items instead of throwing them away, and also go to the pic-n-save (a.k.a. the dump) and bring home found objects. Steps to out buildings made of pallets, old chairs refinished, wood for lathe work, blocks for the area where we root/grow plants, old bbq roller cart made into a flower cart display... use newspapers for starter pots... grass clippings on the hill to stop erosion... Our house is energy efficient. Think that's enough. Thank you Green Bag Lady. mlwright29 (at) hotmail (dot) com

Birgit said...

Hi there,

I was one of the lucky winners last year and I must say that I love and use your bag every week. It's my loyal companion when I go to the mobile library, you see. Of course, I wouldn't mind having another bag to carry it around in my purse. It would come handy when I happen to buy something out of the blue.

As for going green, I live in a country which goes green in many regards. I have recycled pretty much all my life and I always bring my own bags for shopping.

Thanks for doing such a great job -- you rock! And -- regards to your dad. :)

Lots of greetings from Munich,
Birgit

Now I spend more quiet time (hum hum) at home because of last tiny Anwen sweet girl only 18 mth !

Going green is using a water bottle and refilling rather than buying, recycling everything we can and trying to watch our purchases so that we have less to throw away in the first place. Thanks for participating in this way!

I would love to be one of your winners. I've been donating tons of magazines that are piled up to various waiting rooms all over our town. Seeing as I sit in various waiting rooms and sift through magazines a couple of years old, I hope others appreciate what I do as must as I would if someone else stocked a waiting room I was in. debgiro at wildblue dot net

Wow ...I love the bag and idea of the winner making one to give away.

I have made several changes ..unplugging the rechargers, being much more careful about recycling and only organic fertilizers.

paperboxes said...

Hi- I am so excited to have come across your site tonight. Our family tries to be as green as we can without breaking the bank or going crazy. Although I was proud to bits- it was a bit odd and embarrassing when my eco-minded 6yr old son made my Mother's Day card on the previous week's Weight Watchers name tag! :? That one may be hard to keep on the mantle for as long as some!
The most satisfying thing I do to stay green is recycle my and my husband's old and damaged clothing into things for my kids. My daughter loves her t-shirt dresses knowing that they are made from Mommy's too-big winter shirt and a tank top with a broken strap. She tells everyone and I just smile and say how easy it is if they want to learn.
Thanks for your awesome site (I hope to get back to mine soon!) and the give-away win opportunity. Be well and keep it up!

I love this idea - thanks! We cloth diaper and try to minimize electricity usage by keeping the AC at 78 and running fans, or keeping the heat at 62 in the winter. It amazes me how many of my friends keep the heat in the mid-70s to save themselves from having to wear a sweater indoors. I love saving money and doing a little environmental good in the process.

At our child care center, we compost, use and compost brown paper towels, grow a vegetable garden every year, and recycle all of the food containers from kids' lunchboxes (in addition to encouraging parents to package their own portions). Our kids have a strong ethic of responsibility to take care of our Mother Earth. Best, Andrea in Vermont

We don't have curbside recycling so to the embarassment of my husband I lug all of my recycling to the store and add it to their recyclables. We also have a compost bin we started last year when we started our first garden :)

Wonderful idea on your giveaway. We are pretty green behind the ears, but have added another option to our home. Instead of throwing out capri suns or honesty kid empty juice pouches (yeah know the ones I mean, kinda foily kinda plasticy)..instead of throwing them out, sign up with terracycle.net and they will send out prepaid postage and instruct you on how to collect these pouches (and other specific brand wrappers). For each one you send in, they give you 2 cents to a school you designate, or you can choose your own charity. We chose the Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinsons Disease. Easy peasy to do, and a lot of recycling programs dont' include these wrappers and items in their county or city programs. Win Win for everyone.

We use cloth grocery bags as much as possible and when we get the other kind, they are used to pick up after the dogs. Even then, we cut them in half to use fewer. jpowell@excellentwriters.com

Love to win a new bag that I could use instead of my ones from various store. I do use cloth bags for grocery shopping and have just started to use them at other stores also.

i re use cans and containers for storage and drinking out of, i recycle the rest, i compost (and recently learned there are so many things that can be composted besides leftover fruit/veggies/leaves), i have greened up the office by using cloth towels for hand drying, buying recycled products, using mugs, bringing home coffee grinds for my garden and compost, i save things that i think can be re used even tho i havent figured out how yet ie. bulk bags of dog food, today i re used a fedex box to return something to client, and printed shipping label on the back of the orig ship label, and i try to remember to write on the package "please re use", i use cfls and in general i am trying to find earth friendly products and use less of everything. it would be fun to win a bag, i'd love to add one to my collection of re usable bags. thanks.

Instead of buying wrapping paper or packing paper, I've been using old school papers. I'm moving, so I always donate unwanted clothes and furniture instead of throwing it away. I try to avoid throwing things in the trash.

I absolutely love this idea, especially the fact that we get one to make and pass on. I love the fact that when I go to the grocery now, "paper or plastic?" has become "is plastic okay?" and I love being able to say-- "No! Use these instead! They don't kill the environment!" =)

Oh I LOVE your idea of giving one and having one to pay it forward!! thank you so much!
Love to do everything we can do go green. Right now focusing on the REDUCE of the reduce, reuse, and recycle trio. it's the often overlooked one!
and thanks for the tip on the at / dotcom thing re: spam, unfortunately I had never heard that until now (after all these giveaways, ha!)
I love what you are doing on your blog so I'm subscribing, thanks again!

We bike where we can. We use reusable water bottles. Changed out almost all of our light bulbs. Vermicomposting is something we just started as well.
