Superhero Momtrepreneur of the Day #1
Superhero Momtrepreneur #1: Sara Starkoff Green: The Give Bag
Think Green, Live Green, Give Green with Sara Starkoff Green. Her name says it all!
OK moms... check your calendars. How many birthday parties do you have this month? I know I have one almost every single weekend. Well, ponder this... 3 Birthday parties this month, 2 Valentine’s Day gifts and a Baby Shower. Now wrap each gift with wrapping paper, gift bags, cellophane, ribbons, bows and a greeting card. Ever realize how much paper you are wasting?
Did you know wrapping paper and shopping bags alone account for about 4 million tons of trash annually in the U.S.? As much as half of the 85 million tons of paper products Americans consume every year goes toward packaging, wrapping and decorating goods. Now thats a bad wrap.
The Give Bag was created as a simple, fun, sustainable, cost-effective way for people everywhere to positively impact Mother Earth. Lets teach our kids at an early age how to make choices for their future. You even get to Track The Bag and see how many places your bag has traveled around the world. Your kids will love logging online with you to check where their Give Bag came from first.
Everything is a teaching moment so take full advantage by connecting science, social studies and math all by Giving Green Gifts with The Give Bag. I’m so excited to wrap my next gifts with The Give Bag!
