Whole Foods Market bags new idea

Whole Foods Market will be going green with its bagging options (refer to my posts dated January 13 and 15). Starting in April, on Earth Day appropriately, they'll no longer offer shoppers the option of disposable plastic bags. Customers will instead have several choices, including canvas bags, recycled paper bags, or they can bring their own bags. This will prevent an estimated 100 million plastic bags from entering the environment for the remainder of 2008 alone. How awesome is that??? See the complete USA Today article.

Hey fellow Floridian. Saw your blog on Em's chat. Just wanted to say hi. I wish we had a whole foods here. We only have a Wild Oats and its almost 20 miles away!

Hey thanks for stopping by! I think Em's chat was terrific tonight, I'm loving the GP class. What part of FL are you in? I also see that you used to live in Indy....me too! Went to Purdue, then moved to Indy for 3 years, lived in Greenwood. A nice town.
Saw your blog, love your projects! Stop by again soon!
