My favourite shopkeeper in the city is Tony at the Kitchen and Glass Place. If you need a can opener, he’ll sell you the one that works, not the one that costs the most. He’s got all the latest gadgets and do-hickeys, from silicone muffin trays to flax seed grinders, but his store is unpretentious. After 35 years in the business, he knows which trends make sense (like switching from non-stick to cast iron) and which are just silly (like the gravity-operated pepper mill).
I wrote about him recently because he sells these E-cloths that I’ve raved about, and he was nice enough to send me a couple of collapsibe, roll-up tote bags called Envirosax, which he sells at cost to his customers because he’s an environmentally friendly kinda guy. If you go to my “Loving it” page (I know, it needs updating), you’ll see that these mini totes, which can fit into any purse, have been one of my favourite green changes so far. Ever since I got mine, I haven’t needed a single plastic bag.
So I thought I’d give them away to the first two people who can suggest a new green change I can make — it has to be something I haven’t done yet, so read through my list carefully! Oh, and also, you’re not allowed to suggest the Diva Cup because I’ve already got one.
The bag looks like the one above, but you can also go to the website and check out their other fun prints.
Ready, set, go!
