|Why am I passionate about being green?
||Since the early 1970s when I was hauling my cans, glass, and newspapers in my VW mini-van to the local recycling center (much before curbside recycling) I have felt passionate about trash making and what I can do to decrease my own. Envrionmental stewardship. I continutally ask myself what else I can do to decrease my consumption of resources.
||In 2005 I volunteered with Doctors Without Borders for a medical mission to the Darfur Region of the Sudan. When I arrived I saw hanging on every bush and tree branch shreds of plastic bags. "Is this the legacy the Western World has brought to a poor country like this?" I asked myself. As a result I started my reusable produce bag business to help decrease plastic bags in this world.
