Styling Shopping Bag Haul

re-usable bag haulNo More Plastic Bags!

A haul of shopping bags is almost redundant. Re-using bags may even seem repetitive. But when a plastic bag takes 450 years to biodegrade, why litter the earth with 10 billion of them–over and over and over?

An average person will use over 350 bags in a single year! Reusable bags save trees, water, gas, and oil. They help air pollution, our oceans, and sea creatures.

Make an Environmental Fashion Statement

Now that there is a plethora of fashionable bags small and large, it’s the perfect time to collect ones that add to your wardrobe, can be kept in your car, purse or pocket. Sporting  re-usable bags at the checkout line tells the Earth that you are taking action against non-bio-degradable, energy-consuming, litter-producing, petroleum-based plastic bags–and looking good doing it.

A Dog & A Dress

The other night I ran into this huge dog when I was trying on clothes. I adopted her for the evening and even made her take pictures with me like this one — as if we were in a Disney movie or on someone’s worst dressed list. We both rather enjoyed it, even though I would really wear this dress with a pair of strappy black heels and I’d lose the tights.

I didn’t buy the dress, but I do have this photo and that makes me feel as if I actually wore it out somewhere. So now it has been worn and I don’t need it. Plus, without the dog, the dress just would not be the same.
