      Anything for the environment. 5 stars for this lens. We also advocate the recycling of toner cartridges and refilling 'em with < a href="">toner refill kits. If you have time, hope you'd drop by on my lens as well.

      those a really nice bags. but i prefer straw bags... i think they're a bit more fashionable. and some bag retailers also help the communities that make them.

      btw, check out my site here

      I'm always disturbed when I pick up my daily mail and think of all the trees that were used each day to support the junk that I burn up and never read. Re-using things, stopping the plastic epidemic at the grocery stores and saving on paper waste are always on my mind.

      Did you design those? If so, very impressive! Simply but classy and clever. I like them a lot. I use plastic bags when I go to the grocery store, but I'm going to look into getting some canvas bags like you show. Great tip of putting them back in the car so they will be ready to go!

      I should just get some html code that says, 5***** as usual, and add it to all of your lenses. I really like your bags. You are so creative...

      great green lens! 5* All of our grocery stores are doing away with plastic bags or charging for them and I need to get one of these for when I go and just get a few items...for the full stash of groceries we use large plastic bins (4)

      ...thanks for visiting my Hallmark Family Tree Ornament lens...I appreciate it!

      Whenever I shop at a store that sells their own reuasable bags, I pick one up. You can never have too many!

      Thanks for featuring my lens on reusing greeting cards. I've rolled this over to some of my green living lenses! * * * * *

      Love your canvas bag designs! I have several reusable bags. The trick is remembering to take them to the store with me!
