Our favorite reusable: a new Earthbound shopping bag

Stylish & Earth-Friendly? You Betcha!

Choosing reusables when you can is a beautiful way to pamper the planet — and show off a little personal style at the same time!
 

For example, if every American uses a reusable shopping bag just ONCE a week this year, we’ll keep 16 billion bags out of landfills. 

 

There’s a world of stylish reusables to check out, like these clever examples:

  • Biodegradable, recyclable cotton napkins come on a perforated roll like paper towels, and they’re washable up to 6 times — perfect for picnics, portable lunches or casual dinner at home (ElleDécor.com loves them for summer entertaining).
  • When you can, ditch the drab disposable in favor of your own classy spill-proof mug (or travel tea cup).
  • And how about using your own utensils? Our friends at TheKitchn.com created a roundup of nifty reusables with a little something for everyone (and nothing for the trash can)!

Reusable bag giveaway
By: nathchristopher

What about those of us who aren't on Facebook?! Not everyone is on Facebook but everyone on Facebook is online. Surely your giveaway could be taking place on your website and then EVERYONE could participate. Thank you.

Nathalie and Everyone
By: jean

We understand that Facebook isn't for everyone. Practically speaking, however, we're only able to do this giveaway because of the strength and simplicity that Facebook offers. Doing a promotion of this size through our website would just be cost-prohibitive, so we wouldn't be able to do it at all. We're always looking for better ways to reach out to all of the incredible folks who support Earthbound -- but the meantime, we hope you can understand our limitations in this case. ~Jean at Earthbound

By: gebstoo

I came to check it out also and was going to comment through my e-mail but I think I've done that before and it bounces. Then I saw this comment area and decided to sign in and comment here. I also don't have facebook and don't want facebook. Just like I don't tweet or pin etc. Not only do I not care to do so, I don't have time for such things. I would have appreciated being able to get one on the website also.

By: thistle809

Many people who purchase organic foods and live a "green" lifestyle are not registered on Facebook. A lot of us use mobile phones only as a "last resort" and do not have a data plan for texting. How about recognizing those of us who support your company, but do not support Facebook or cannot afford a data plan for a cell phone?

I agree with Nathalie C. - as unbelievable as it may seem, there are still many people who choose not to participate in Facebook.  While I would love to have a chance to win the bag, I won't join FB in order to do it.  Please make ALL giveaways available to ALL of your consumers.  :)

By: ross417

I would have done Facebook-- but it takes all my friend's info. That's awful. I wouldn't want my friends doing that to me so I won't do it to them. This isn't the friendliest giveaway; next time should be better thought out.

By: jean

Dee, I can understand your privacy concerns. The app on Facebook may "have access to" the info in a person's Facebook profile, but that's the way they built that tool. Every user who enters is completely in control of whether they want to share with friends or not. Earthbound is collecting only the info we need to mail bags to winners, period. We won't use it for any other purpose, we won't share it with any other company and we won't bug anyone's friends. Doing a promotion of this size through our website would just be cost-prohibitive, which means we wouldn't be able to do it at all. We hope you can understand our limitations in this case. ~Jean at Earthbound

You can get a facebook
By: swtdl11552

You can get a facebook account without adding any friends.  You can simply :like" the companies/orgnaizations that you are interested in so you can learn about their upcoming events, new products, and giveaways like this one.  That is what I did.  I have a facebook page that is completely private, so people cannot search for me and request to be my friend etc.  Perhaps this would be helpful?

I am SO glad to hear that other people are upset that the giveaway is only available to Facebook users.  I don't have Facebook for many reasons, and I get frustrated by all these companies that only offer their coupons or contests to Facebook users.  Please include those of us who don't spend all our time engaged in social media!

It is true that many, many
By: jankos10

It is true that many, many individuals today are choosing not to participate on Facebook.  I would like to suggest to Earthbound that these are quite likely to be individuals who prefer to donate their time and energies to improving the world through their work with environmental groups, as well as by directly interacting with friends and family members to make environmentally sustainable choices.  Remember, in life there are always trade-offs.  You can choose to buy organic and sustainable food, and you can also choose to spend you time in more meaningful ways than posting mindless photos and You Tube clips that do nothing to improve this planet.  Think it over, Earthbound Farm. The comments that have been posted should make you reassess the manner in which you present offers to your customers in the future.  I would suggest you do this before you lose your neglected customers to your competitors. (FYI: I just read Walmart is entering the organic food market.)

Everyone
By: jean

Hi, all -- thank you for your constructive comments. We understand that Facebook isn't for everyone. Unfortunately, the strength and flexibility of Facebook make it the only way we can make this kind of offer right now. Putting a promotion of this size on our website would be so cost-prohibitive that we wouldn't be able to do it at all. Of course, we're always looking for better ways to reach out to all of the incredible folks who support Earthbound. In the meantime, we hope you can understand our limitations. ~Jean at Earthbound

I use the few reusable bags I have as much as I can and opt for paper if i dont have them on me by chance. I also love to give reusable bags as gifts. Whether their present is "wrapped" in a reusable shopping bag or I have one made with their own pictures on shutterfly. Spreading the green!

Do not throw away your reuseable bags when soiled.  Most can be cleaned in the washer or rinse out with soapy water with vinegarll.
