Monday Give Away: UrthBag!

Monica Ralli, founder of UrthBags, has sent us this beautiful “Angelina” recycled magazine handbag for our Monday give away! UrthBags are the Eco-Chic handbags made with the health of the planet in mind. I have one of these little beauties sitting on the kitchen table, and believe me, it is fantastic.

Monica has always tried to live a sustainable life by recycling everything possible, shopping locally at farmers markets, avoiding toxic chemicals by choosing organic, etc.  Looking in her closet one evening filled with handbags, purses, totes, gym bags, etc., She thought to herself, why couldn’t these same, stylish designs be made from salvaged, recycled & discarded materials?   After much researching, sourcing materials, locating and organizing women’s groups, she created UrthBags Eco-Chic Handbags.

Monica also follows a predominantly raw diet and has for over 20 years. She strongly advocate consuming sustainable, fresh food diet that is as close to its natural state as possible. Sisterhood!

This beautiful bag’s retail value is 72.00. Thank you Monica!

    Ooh, I hope I’ve made it before midnight…it’s before midnight MY time on the westcoast! It’s 10:28 PM

    So if this counts, one way we like to be more green is turning off the heater to the water – turn it back on at night then off during the day. There’s enough hot water to last us thru the day.

    I compost and use chicken manure from a friend’s chickens; I recycle glass, plastics, cardboard, newspapers, cans and bottles, and I have eliminated almost all commercial cleaning products from my household. I make my own window cleaner, use vinegar and water to clean and buy unbleached papers.

    I keep a chico bag in my purse – never need a plastic or paper bag when I go to the grocery store

    I reuse the large glass jugs that once held organic apple juice, from my local coop, and keep them filled with pure drinking water from a local spring.

    I use green products to care for my home. So many people I know have MCS, Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. I care deeply for the earth, our precious organic food, and I do my part for the environment and my home.

    I like to do a bit of everything, but I don’t seem to be 100% of all that I do. I compost, recycle, walk, transit, grow some veggies and herbs. Shop at the Farmers market, buy organic and make consious choices. I do wish I was better…I keep working at it one step at a time.

    I love trying to come up with ways for my husband and I to become more green. This year we had a garden with fresh veggies that we love and we purchased a composting bin also that is working great!
