This is for people attending my party in January.

Did you know if you use just 10 plastic grocery sacks each week that in one year that totals more than 500 bags? Sometimes my total is well over 10 per week. I thought ‘what a waste of energy’, so I decided to get greener. What I did was buy three ‘green’ bags to carry items, I spent less than $1 each for them and they are actually pretty cool. They don’t break like the cheap plastic sacks and they hold much more than a plastic sack does. They have a square bottom so they stand up straight, unlike the plastic sacks that tip over and spill your items all over your car.

HINT: After you use the bags for shopping, immediately place them back in your car, then you will have them ready next time you need them.

So here is party project number three. This competition starts today, November 12, 2009.

Buy and use ‘green bags’. You can buy them almost everywhere. Keep track on a calendar how many times you use them. But you can only count three times each week.

If you don’t like the green bag idea, then recycle your plastic bags. You will also get points for this but not as many as using green bags. You must document this too.

You have about seven weeks until the next party. So make each week count. Points will be disclosed at the party.


  1. I do actually have some of these bags lieing around the house, (one of them doesn't have a square bottom though), so I think I'll have to use them, and give this a shot. But now I won't have bags to refill my garbage s with... hmmm oh well.

  2. So.. they say that the Green bags are a playground for bacteria. Comments?
