Maggie Bags: seatbelts to handbags

After a long hiatus from blogging, I'm back! Miss me?

A few weeks ago, a friend told me about a local company with a green initiative making a very creative product: Maggie Bags. They take genuine automotive seat belt webbing and turn them into variety of fashionable bags. Due to high government standards, millions of yards of seat belt webbing are rejected by automakers each year. Maggie Bags rescues that from landfill and uses it to make purses, backpacks, and totes. Isn't that cool?!

I point this out because I've joined Maggie Bags to blog about green ideas. They're not looking for me to gush about how great their products are; they sell themselves. They just want to share more green ideas with their customers. So I will be a guest blogger for them twice a month.

My first post was last week (yes, I'm behind): "Fall leaves: Shred 'em and Spread 'em." It's one of the best ways you can dispose of a nuisance and provide nutrients to your yard or garden--for FREE. Plus, there's a cute picture of my daughter using her pint sized rake. I hope you check it out.

If you have green ideas you'd like me to explore, please leave a comment. Thanks! 

I have been compensated for my guest blogs but my opinions in my posts are 100% my own and are not influenced in any way.
