Offer: Time to stop using plastic produce bags too!
When I was in the Darfur region of the Sudan I was shocked beyond words to see attached to the branches of every tree and bush pieces of shredded plastic bags. "Is this the legacy the Western World has brought to the world?" I thought. I had already switched to canvas shopping bags years before but until then had not thought carefully about how many plastic produce bags I was using on a regular basis. When I returned from Darfur, I made a conscious effort to avoid using plastic bags of any type when I went shopping, especially in the grocery stores. What I did at first was to simply put my produce into my shopping cart and bags "bare." This was not a good solution as sometimes the produce would roll around and some would get "squished." Recently, while pondering how an alternative could be produced I came up with what I consider to be the perfect solution--lightweight and see through net bags with drawstring tops. I sat down to my sewing machine, and made some prototypes for friends to try out. The response has been uniformly positive both from users and from check-out clerks. So, many days of sewing later and an official website, the bags are now available for you the world to try out! I told my daughter recently that I would like to make money on these (of course) but at least I will have a place in paradise held for me. Keeping plastic bags out of landfills and off the trees and bushes of all countries is the passion that keeps me sewing, sewing, sewing. I have a website: www.l-bag.com. The cost is very reasonable and the bags will last and last and last. Looking beyond and forward! Louana
