I was reading this article: http://www.thisismoney.co.uk/news/article.html?in_article_id=419792&in_page_id=2 It's about how the "I'm not a plastic bag" is made under dubious conditions and not organic or anything. It's supposed to be eco-friendly, but they have to ship them from China and they don't carbon-balance or anything. I just wondered if the people clamoring for this bag realize that buying it might do more harm than good. There are other options for stylish earth-friendly bags that do make a difference. There's this bag the "friends of al" eco tote by Hayden-Harnett. It's $55 but $35 of it goes to planting trees and global warming charities. There's this bag called the "feed" bag that's put out by the world food programme: It's $60 dollars, but that money will feed a schoolchild for a year in a developing country. You can get this one through Amazon. I know the "I'm not a plastic bag" bags are cheaper, but there are ethical concerns with that bag.
