July 2011 Newsletter

Why Nature Bags are the Greenest Around...

Last 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!
