Just when you thought the canvas bag was over-played, here comes another totally redeeming and genius idea! Combining my love of green and dress-up, Rezon brings you the ECO-WARRIOR bag!!
“Who’s ECO WARRIOR?” Anyone can be a HERO! ECO WARRIOR BAG is a eco-bag that represents you are an Environment activist. If you see “Anti-manner” people like throwing away a cigarette butt on street, not separating garbage by type, transform ECO WARRIOR! Then, give them a warning very kindly instead of a drop kick. Standard class and High class that is printed with lame ink are available.
You can purchase through the international link above, but I’m on the hunt for somewhere continental to place the order through. I’ll let you know of any discoveries. Currently 3 color options are availble, the Golden Greenie modeled above, silver sparkle and minimalist blue (both featured below). I’ll take one of each?

“How do we tell the difference between a ‘good company’ and just good marketing?”
So you’re a company who says you want to do good, go green and make a positive impact on the world. How do we, the consumers, know you’re telling the truth? Well, if you are a certified B Corporation, through the non-profit B Lab, then we know your company is the real deal!
“B Corporations are a new kind of company that uses the power of business to solve social and environmental problems.” It’s kind of like LEED certification for companies. Sort of. B corporations are B certified companies who operate on an agreed level of excellence, by way of meeting absolute transparency standards on social and environmental performance; by legally expanding their corporate responsibilities to include consideration of stakeholder interests, and “by amplifying the voice of sustainable business and for-profit social enterprises through the power of the unifying B Corporation brand.”
That’s a whole lotta good. Some of the 160 companies who are currently B certified are: Seventh Generation (love their home cleaning products!), TS Designs (just posted about them!), Comet Skateboards, Dansko, Method, and Numi Organic Teas.
