Why Nature Bags are the Greenest Around...
month's Nature Bag newsletter article "Here's More Bad News About
'Going Green' With Polypropylene" drew some discussion on Ethical
Community website. Participating in the discussion prompted Volunteer
Bill to write a general analysis of our project's carbon footprint.
Among the points in the analysis was “No fossil fuel is used until our
project transports the finished bags from the acquisition centers to our
global headquarters in Luang Prabang.”
In upcoming newsletters we will present other facts supporting our belief that Nature Bag’s carbon footprint is close to zero, perhaps even negative!
Our newsletter feature Nature Bag Maker of the Month will return in August
