It was inevitable. Causing a tidal wave in countries overseas earlier this year, Fashion Designer Anya Hindmarch’s I’m Not a Plastic Bag is officially on sale @ $15/each (3 per person limit) at Whole Foods in NYC as of 8a this morning. At Houston Street & Bowery, Anya (Pictured above, right) will be on hand to dole out some of these riot-inducing, canvas totes. Hurray for reusable bags. I just wish they were made of a sustainable fabric. As seen in today’s NY Times and cnnMoney.
Why do I have a feeling we won’t be seeing many groceries in this bag?
At this point in time, the bag has a starting bid of $100 @ ebay.com, and the last one I saw, sold for $250.
For a glimpse back on the Anya mayhem:

In the world workout gear, Lululemon Athletica is hot.
This BBB Sheer VNeck is made with vitasea technology consisting of seaweed which releases marine amino acids, minerals, and vitamins into the skin upon contact with moisture. In addition, the fabric provides anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, stress reducing, hydrating and detoxifying features.
Tried and true, as tested by Pilates instructor and health enthusiast, Paige Davis of Natural Path. Thanks for the hot tip, Paige.
Want to know how your hometown measures up on the green scale? Check out Warren Karlenzig’s new book, How Green is Your City? (New Society Publishers, 2007), the result of SustainLane’s 2006 sustainability study involving the largest 50 cities in the U.S.
Measuring city standards like public transit, air and tap water quality and local agriculture, Karlenzig ultimately crowns Portland, Oregon with the highest quality of life and commitment to green building, local food, alternative fuels and renewable energy. On the opposite end of the spectrum, Columbus, Ohio ranks last due to its dependence on autos and poor public transit.
