Saving our planet; one bag at a time

April 3, 2009

Every celebrity endorsement helps the cause of reusable bags

Though it sounds so simple, a lot of people still have to catch on that using a reusable bag really makes a difference to our environment. 

It helps to have any form of publicity that promotes the idea and celebrities endorsing good ecological sense is a very useful step. 

Texas-based grocery store H.E. Butt Grocery Co. (H-E-B) is launching an April ad-campaign featuring Eva Longoria Parker discussing the impact of recycling and using reusable shopping bags. 

It will make so many indifferent people sit up and take notice and will definitely influence many star struck young girls to follow suit. 

In addition, H-E-B stores will be selling Longoria Parker-themed reusable bags at each of its locations, while also collecting plastic bags from customers for recycling. 

Way to go H-E-B, and way to go Eva! 

Lots more businesses could benefit from using reusable bags to promote their brands by showing their ecological concern. See to see how affordable and economical they can be.


  1. It’s true, they are cropping up everywhere. Although they’ve been around the grocers for a while, many mall stores have their own. Regardless if we use them again for shopping, they are sturdy bags to put to use around the home.

    Great post!

  2. This is really what annoys me, people that use plastic bags when they do the groceries. Here in Australia you get plastic bags with everything and therefore I always take my own green bag. The big companies are seeing the fact that they need to get rid of the plastic bags in order to look an be green in the eyes of the consumer!

    I hope Eva will come to Australia and teach the people here a lesson!

  3. I love the site. People need to realize the consequences our behavior has on the environment. Avoiding “paper or plastic” is not as difficult as one may think. There’s an article on Build a Kinder Earth about this that you may enjoy. Check it out!

  5. Great article - it’s sad that we need a celebrity to remind us of something so obvious as this, but whatever works I guess!
