Bring Your Own Bag (BYOB) and Help Save the Earth

As we start the year anew, take a few moments to pledge some good things for yourself and your planet. We all share the same space, even though many of us are miles from one another. We owe it to ourselves, our children, and the future to do a few things that will make a difference. Pollution, toxins, and too much garbage are a big problem. Just by making some small changes, you can reduce the amount of plastic and garbage in the world and decrease the use of limited resources.

The following is a request I received to help the earth in my e-mail box this morning from my dear friend Jordan. Please read and take heed, and Happy New Year to you all!

Hey everybody! Just writing to ask you ladies to check out the new BYOB (Bring Your Own Bag) campaign from the New American Dream. Sign the pledge and bust out your re-usable totes! Use them everywhere from the grocery store to Target. Together, we really can make a difference.

Did you know you can reduce your carbon footprint, help eliminate waste and pollution, and give yourself a chance at some great prizes in one simple step? It’s a win-win situation for you, the community and the ecosystem…and you can even win a $5000 prize package from Brighter Planet.

What do you have to do? Just fill out the pledge form at c3.newdream.org and then start using reusable bags when you go shopping. It’s that easy. Just by doing that you’ll start making a dent in the waste of the 12 million barrels of oil and the 14 million trees used to produce plastic and paper bags each year. Plus you’ll curb your carbon footprint by almost 4 pounds each month.

Visit the C3 site to sign up and then tell your friends: you could win a $5000 prize package from Brighter Planet or one of several other terrific prizes.

New American Dream has also made it easier for you to join the new BYOB, when you pledge you get a coupon for 20% off from ReusableBags.com. Worldwide, an estimated 4 billion plastic bags end up as litter each year. Tied end to end that’s enough to circle the earth 63 times. Isn’t it time to start making a difference?

Pledge Now to Bring Your Own Bag!

Thank You for Making a Difference,
Jordan
