Don’t Throw that Bag Away!!

Because it’s reusable, Silly!  And it’s reusable because you’re ever so thoughtful and mindful of your environment, style, and wallet.  Ecosumo has over 2 dozen choices of stylish reusable bags for shopping or travel or picnic-ing or…insert your need here.  Most importantly though, having a reusable sack around stops the use of disposable plastic bags…and then you can put your reusable water bottle into your reusable bag and help us battle the Diposable Water Bottle Beast!

Check out some of our killer selection:

1. THE FLORA BAG is a green alternative with their lightweight, portable, waterproof bags. Each one holds the equivalent of two supermarket plastic bags, thanks to reinforced seams. The Flora bag draws its inspiration from the colours and shapes of pristine Australian rainforests, bringing a dash of summer to any season. A fun, yet fashionable way to shop! The pouch is small enough to fit into a glove compartment or a medium to large handbag.

2. THE BAMBOO BAG is an eco-friendly alternative to disposable shopping bags that have caused so much damage to the environment worldwide. Plastic bags clog drains and cause flooding. They pollute rivers and streams, killing animals and destroying plantlife. They take years to photodegrade and have a very short life span.

3. THE HEMP BAG – the hemp plant produces the strongest natural fibre known. With no known insect enemies and a high resistance to disease, there is no need to use harmful pesticides in cultivation. The hemp bags are printed with vegetable based inks and are all packaged a recycled cardboard box. A strong eco-friendly alternative, and a great gift idea!

Earth Day Approacheth…

On Planet ecosumo, it’s always Earth Day.  However, most of the humans on planet Earth get together only twice a year to officially represent the Love for Mother Nature.   One of those days is April 22nd (the other is a United Nations affair celebrated on the March Equinox).  Being that April 22nd is next week on Wednesday, ecosumo would like to encourage you to plan ahead.  We’ve provided a list of ten things that you can do ALL WEEK LONG, rather than just Wednesday, to show appreciation for environment.  Our list is below.  (You can read up about Earth Day at earthday.net, Wikipedia, and a zillion other sites by typing EARTH DAY into your favorite Search engine.

Tips:

1. NO MORE DISPOSABLE WATER BOTTLES!!  Promise yourself to get a reusable water bottle and use that genius device to hydrate yourself.  Disposable water bottles are POISON for the planet, eat up massive amounts of fuel in transportation, and create millions of tons of plastic waste every year.  Plus, with a reusable water bottle, you BUY ONCE!!  ecosumo makes it easy for you – we have 15 choices of water bottle on the site.

2. Replace indoor and outdoor bulbs with Compact Flourescent Light-Bulbs (CFL’s).  They last on average about 4 years longer than standard bulbs and use 75% less energy.
