04.05.08 Need-a-Bag? Project Update, and a special surprise

Note: The Need-a-Bag? project was created to promote sustainable bagging at the Hwy 441 Alachua County Farmer's Market each Saturday morning. We supply resusable tote bags reclaimed from thrift stores and garage sales. The Need-a-Bag? project also utilizes old tank tops as tote bags by sewing up the bottoms (these are called t-totes). We invite you to read the other posts on the project by clicking the "Need-a-Bag? Project" label at the bottom of this post.

Went to the farmer's market without DG today, who is visiting relatives in Chi-town with her mommy this weekend. Little Virgo was hung carefully right up in front by the donation bin so no one could possibly miss the lovely new rhinestone-age. For some reason, every week there are more plastic grocery bags being deposited in the donation bin -- a protest from a plastic grocery bag loving soul? Someone who doesn't quite get the point of the Need-a-Bag? project? I won't say "a dumbass?" I just won't. Oh, hey, maybe they're going to Farmer John. I'll see if he wants them.

After hanging up the bags and signage I high-tailed it out of there before the opening bell. I can't be buying no delicious, farm-fresh produce that'll rot in my fridge because...we're going to Disney World!

That's right, once again we're taking our lives and our sanity in our hands and partaking of the happiest place on earth -- which, apparently, will also be the rainiest place on earth tomorrow. And, because I'm a super-wimp, city-slicker we're going camping at Fort Wilderness. Yes, my first camping experience will be at Disney World. I am indeed the lamest excuse for an environmentalist that has ever walked God's green earth. We'll really be roughing it if it rains the whole time we're there, though -- we might have to spend a lot of time at the campground arcade or, gasp, we might even have to swim in the themed campground pool while it's raining. Maybe there'll be photos.
