beSmartbeGreen Eco Tote Bag Giveaway!

Welcome to my first giveaway!
click all images to enlarge


In an effort to get even more awareness out there about how much we are damaging our own planet, I am giving away two bags from my beSmart beGreen eco tote bag line.

We all know now that plastic takes over 1000 years to disintegrate in a landfill, suffocates our sea creatures and we eat inadvertently via eating animals that consumed it, but to learn more about the horrendous damage we are continuing to create by using plastic AND paper bags, read this.

…on to the giveaway!

#1. Recycling 1 ton of paper saves 17 trees bag

#2. beSmart beGreen logo bag

*this bag is a bit larger than the other and in my opinion, better, but possibly not quite as cute*

Here’s how it works: just leave a comment to this post w/ an email address and next Saturday, October 25, I will mix up all the names and draw from the random mix. The first name I draw will get the #1 bag and the second name I draw will get the #2 bag. I’ll either post the results that Saturday or the following Monday, the 27th.

That’s it! Tell your friends because you have a week to enter …and please, only enter one comment per person 🙂


Since the economy is in the shitter, I have marked all bags on sale for $14.99 until the end of 2008. At the beginning of the new year {2009} all bags will go back up to $24.99. And remember, a portion of all proceeds goes to environmentcalifornia.org.

Check out all the bags …beSmartbeGreen.com, bSbG shop and SmartGreenBlog.com {which I will be updating more often now}

The hardest part is remembering to bring them with you! Good luck!
