Three years ago this week Jen on the Edge and I started a little eco-blog called Eco Women: Protectors of the Planet. We shared a vision of a website that could teach people how to behave friendlier to the environment. We aren't super-crunchy-granola (what with liking to shave our armpits and eat the occasional Hostess Twinkie), but we aren't greenwashing the topic by encouraging people to buy more stuff or do nothing and feel good about it. We're those environmental activists in the middle, teaching people how to do right by Earth without spending money or totally uprooting their lifestyles. Since then we've added to the legions of Eco Women (and a couple Eco Men), steering people away from single-use plastic products like shopping bags and water bottles, encouraging people to dig deep and plant their own food, calling out the polluting industries and applauding the companies committed to shrinking their carbon footprints. We've covered "green sex" and "eco-friendly tourism." We've addressed what to eat, wear, buy (or, more likely, NOT buy), smear, spray, unplug and pour--all in the name of saving the environment from pollution.
To celebrate our three year blogiversary over at Eco Women, we're giving away THREE Eco Women canvas shopping bags. To enter to win, you've only got to visit the site and leave a comment.
I do hope none of my readers need this shopping bag--y'all already gave up plastic shopping bags eons ago, right? RIGHT?
