10.05.09 Let the Eco-challenge Begin! Saying goodbye to plastic bags....

The Freemans are putting a stop to the plastic bag pile

Today’s the day! The first day of the MightyNest eco-challenge! Woohoo!

Our fearless MightyNest co-founders have reviewed comments from our various peanut galleries and chosen the first challenge. Drumroll please…

Goodbye plastic bags, hello reusables!

Yes, from now until next Sunday, I’m not allowed to use any plastic bags for any reason whatsoever. Given that my family rakes in about 25-30 plastic bags PER WEEK (scary!) I’m thinking this challenge is right on the money. 

For those of you poo-pooing this saying “ok, that’s pretty darn easy” remember who you’re talking to. Actually, I’m going to go out on a limb and say that a HUGE percentage of the population (even THE most eco-friendly) forgets their reusables once in a while and has to settle for one of those plastic beauties. Right? Just a hunch.

Nevertheless, I’m feeling pretty confident. Mainly because I LOVE the new MightyNest and ModGreenPod reusable bags I picked up when visiting the MightyNest office a few weeks back. Being eco-friendly is always easier and more fun when you can do it in style!

So, here we go! Wish me luck...I'll check back in on Weds....
