Fold it up

Linen. Yum.

Folds. Yum yum.

Handmade. Yum yum yum.

I adore the work of yorktownroad! In fact, one of her bags was part of one of the insipiration boards I made recently. Simple, gorgeous, texturized, well made and accessible prices, too.

WANT everything! lol

Folie à Deux

Oh wow, this is soooooooo cool, I can’t stand it!

These gorgeous are called Folie à Deux, and are the beautiful designs of Rich-in-Craft. Out of handsewn wool, and polyurethane and glass anthler handles, this bag will be hard to find – only 36 will be made – and I have no clue where they will be!

Rich-in-Craft (I LOVE their website, so nicely made!) is a newly created L.A. company, because this is their first product. Woah! Can’t wait to see some more of their creative juice in the future!

Smart Groceries

It always hurts me when I go grocery shopping and have to use plastic bags to put my veggies and fruit in. I’m thinking: I make efforts, I have 7 cotton bags which usually gets everything in, and then I go and use produce bags because there are no alternatives. I reuse them, like for the litter, but I still feel bad.

Well, no more! There IS an alternative! Where have I been?

I discovered, via the EcoEtsy Street Team blog, some handmade lightweight (no extra weight on scale) nylon tulle bags by remarket. Offered in different sizes, they are such a simple idea yet so practical and much needed!

I’m going to buy some right this second! :)

Journée sans sac

“Demain aura lieu la première journée sans sac, une opération de sensibilisation destinée à réduire l’usage des sacs de plastique. Initiée par le volet québécois du Festival mondial de
la Terre
, l’opération invite les consommateurs à ne pas utiliser de sacs de plastique pour faire leur épicerie. Selon l’organisme, 2 milliards de sacs sont remis aux consommateurs québécois chaque année.

Ainsi, cette journée de sensibilisation, qui s’adresse autant aux citoyens qu’aux commerçants, vise également à faire pression pour que le gouvernement du Québec adopte le projet de loi 309 : présentée à l’Assemblée en avril 2005 par le député de Lac-Saint-Jean Stéphan Tremblay, cette loi prévoit l’interdiction des sacs de plastique non biodégradable.”
