Reusuable Canvas Bags Make for GREAT holiday wrapping

24 11 2007

It’s Black Friday in America. That just means  one month until Christmas to me, here in Vancouver.

I was reading an article in GRANVILLE Sustainable City Living Magazine by Emily Murgatroyd www.greenprintevents.wordpress.com.   The topic:  Minimizing waste during the holiday season.  

Right away I thought of a great company that is based here in Vancouver that could help. They are always at the Portobello West market (last Sunday of every month) – www.portobellowest.com. 

 

The company is called Bring Your Own Bag (BYOB) and they sell re-usable cloth bags in larger sizes, perfect!  Wouldn’t you love to get a gift bag that’s reusable, trendy and helps the environment? www.bringyouronwbag.ca

 

Aveda also sells reusable bags which are great for smaller parcels (just make sure you say “No” to the plastic bag they may offer you when you leave the store.)  www.aveda.com
