Wednesday Wag Out!

Reusable Bags

The name says it all. sells bags and a whole lot more. Their message is clear right on their home page - billions of plastic bags are choking our planet. The costs of all these bags is staggering, not only in terms of dollars, but also in terms of the environmental impact they create. According to their website, they have been a major force providing facts and news on the global push to reduce plastic and paper consumption. In addition to the great bags they offer, they have lots of products that are designed to help everyone consumer less, preserve natural resources, and of course save money. Keep spreading the word about the plastic problem. And be a role model when you shop - bring your own bags and hopefully people will notice and join in the anti plastic movement.

Wonder Tablitz

This company has created products that are a step in the green direction. The concept is simple and hopefully other companies will follow suit. Their cleaning products come with an empty bottle and three tablets. Simply place one of the tablets in the bottle, fill with water, and clean away. One bottle of Wonder Tablitz is equivalent to 3 bottles of traditional cleaners. One bottle means less waste - less waste in terms of plastic, fuel to transport the bottles, and packaging to ensure safe delivery. The products do not contain phosphates, are non-flammable, and are safe to use. Sound great? Do your own cleaning test at home after shopping at
