Being Green Doesn't Mean You Can't Be Fashionable!

Jul 25, 2008
Ok, Ok, I know, everyone has to chip in. After all, we all live on this planet, right? So honestly, I don't mind the recycling every object that comes into my home. I don't mind all the sorting and bins and the 245 different brand numbers on the bottom of plastic items. I don't mind the chemical deprived household cleaners that seem to work OK and smell a lot nicer. I don't mind the smaller model car that has; gasp and count them, four cylinders although I will admit to missing my big block Chevy.

My point is I am trying. I can buy organic with the best of them, I watch my energy and water usage and count my carbon footprints. I consciously try to reduce my garbage and I and filter my water too. I can reuse plastic bags and buy swirly looking light bulbs. However there is one "green" issue I just can not abide by. I'm talking about those ugly re-usable shopping bags. I mean, whose idea was that, and why do they have to be so darn ugly?

There is no way in heaven I'm gonna walk around with a ugly colorless store branded re-usable shopping bag over my arm. I have to draw the line somewhere and that is it. No way am I going to pair my beautiful shoes, vintage purse and designer outfit with a faded green looking canvas bag, even if it is just from the store out to the car and then in side to the kitchen. Gosh darn, doesn't someone have to stop and say enough!

So girls, I've given this a lot of thought, and here is my green but still very fashionable opinion: Go out and get yourself a beautiful beach bag or two or three. Beach bags can be for towels, books, ipods, books, lotion, valuables, and yes even groceries. If you don't care for colorful beach bags, get a few fine looking leather book bags.

Choose carefully and keep in mind they will have to go well with any outfit you happen to be wearing when you wander into the store. The ideal bags should be big, and heavy duty, with thick fabric and well sewn seams. Throw those beautiful bags in the back seat of your car and the next time you have to shop, you can do it in style and still living a green lifestyle!
