Cities Banning Plastic Bags - Map and Facts

Source: SwitchBags.org
Many cities are jumping on the movement to ban plastic bags. The Earth, and all of us at Tiny Tipis, are loving this new effort to be environmentally aware! 

To say thank you to our customers in places where plastic is banned we are offering FREE SHIPPING on all domestic canvas bag orders of $9.99 or more!!! Stock up on the best canvas bags you'll ever own and save some money while saving the planet. 

Simply use the code "FAREFREELY" when ordering to receive your shipping discount. 

(This offer is only applicable in US cities that have an active plastic bag ban. Orders that do not comply with this, or are for items other than canvas bags, must be canceled and resubmitted with proper shipping charges. Thank you for your understanding.)

FIVE Plastic Bags Facts:
  1.  Approximately 90% of trash floating on the ocean's surface is plastic. 
  2. 93% of Americans age 6+ will test positive for traces of BPA, a harsh chemical found in most plastics. 
  3. Plastic Bags do not biodegrade; they photodegrade, meaning they break down into smaller and smaller toxic pieces that contaminate soil and waterways. 
  4. One million sea birds and 100,000 marine mammals are killed annually from plastic in our oceans. 
  5. The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is the largest ocean garbage site in the world. The floating mass of plastic is two times the size of Texas. Plastic there outnumbers sea life six to one.

Carry All Your Precious Cargo Safely

Carry All Your Precious Cargo Safely

My canvas bags have been getting a lot of attention lately. People love that there is an environmentally friendly option out there with quality and durability in mind. I can also attest to how awesome these bags are. The ten ounce all natural cotton canvas is some of the best fabric I've ever had the pleasure of working with. It is strong enough to carry 40+ lbs for years, maybe even a lifetime! The handle is made from a super sturdy cotton webbing that is wide enough to prevent the strap from cutting into your skin when carrying heavy loads. The large 18"x18" bag is the perfect size for over-stuffing but isn't so big that it gets too heavy. Seriously, I own 3 of these bags and deny myself more on a regular basis. (The hubby says I don't have room for more purses.)

In case you were wondering - no, I don't carry chicks in my purse all the time. I mostly use them as totes at the farmers market, grocery bags, or a diaper bag. They've worked as picnic baskets, for carry on luggage at the airport, and as gifts! (Please note these bags are not intended to carry live animals or people.) I just thought the chickens made the photo more interesting and cute.

Here are a few more cute chicken photos:
