Be part of Earth Hour! On March 28th be sure to turn off your lights for 1 hour and participate in Earth Hour. Over 1,508 Cities and towns in 80 countries have already signed up to participate. On the 28th make a conscious effort to turn your lights off for an hour and I think you’ll be surprised how easy it is. Participate in this day and maybe it will carry over to other days and next thing you know your energy bill will be a few bucks less. Success!

Jenna Recycled Magazine Bag

Jenna Recycled Magazine Bag

UrthBags is our newest supplier of ECO FRIENDLY HANDBAGS/TOTES and I had to try one.  I ordered the Jenna style about 3 weeks ago and have been using it for 2 weeks.  I like it.  It is a little large for me for a purse but great as a tote and it is waterproof.  I carry my folders and notebooks (letter size), lunch, even my small purse in it to the office.  Last week, I had to take the metra train into Chicago for a meeting and it was perfect – especially since it was raining.  The Jenna is waterproof inside and out, there is a main zipper closure and zipper pockets, it snaps close. If you want something a little different – this is it.  I have included pictures of my purse – inside and out, and the picture from our order page.  Each purse is unique and you can’t pick the pictures (mine has Brad Pitt and Catherine Zeta-Jones) but follows the same pattern as the sample.   I recommend it – it looks great after two weeks of constant use, I will see if it withstands the test of time.  Great GIFT idea- that is a little different.

Car of the Future

Our monthly poll question for March is up. You can vote on the sidebar to the right.

This month’s question is: What Will Power the Cars of the Future? Do you think it will be corn based ethanol? Are plug-in cars going to be the next big thing? Or do you think that cars will always be powered by oil based gasoline? If you would like to share your thoughts on this topic, please do so in the comments below.
