[GreenYes] Sources of reusable shopping bags


Title: [GreenYes] Sources of reusable shopping bags

Hi GRRN:

Sierra Club folks have been asking me about where to go to buy large
quantities of reusable shopping bags. And of course the hierarchy of the
best bags.  So I have two questions:

1. Does anyone have a master list including company name, phone and
website of companies that sell reusable shopping bags.  And if so, could
you please send to me.

2. If disposable non-renewable plastic bags are at the bottom of the
hierarchy, what kind of reusable bags are at the top?  Organic cotton
locally grown?  Hemp again locally grown?  recycled fiber?  reusable
plastic like the tyvex kind?  Are any of these bags made in the US from
US grown fiber?  Or at least from north America?

Thanks,

I am checking to see if I can like supplier from the Sierra Club's
website, I am not sure if this is a conflict with our rules. If not, we
will be rolling out a commonly asked question and answer section as we
are being inundated with all the ban plastic bag stuff.  San Francisco
your new policies are killing me..... just kidding, clearly our members
are excited about what the City is doing.
