Paper or Plastic? I’ll Use My Own, Thank You!

Lazies, My friend Kathleen Fasanella just announced a new contest to design a re-usable grocery/shopping bag – great idea! Kathleen took her inspiration from an article in the New York Times  which noted that San Francisco passed an ordinance this week banning some plastic bags.
I love Kathleen’s contest. It’s a great idea and she posted some background commentary/thoughts on the ‘green grocer’ movement. Sounds like a good trend to me.
You can read the entire post at Kathleen’s Fashion-Incubator blog .
And as fabric crafters – I love the idea of using my own grocery bags made from fabrics that I adore. Oh, the other customers would be so envious of my dashing bags. And just imagine the design possibilities. Different sizes and shapes of bags – oh my!
Kathleen plans to profile the submissions as they come in. Submission criteria are included at the end of her blog post noted above. Deadline is June 1st.
I’m going to enjoy watching!
