I volunteer and work with some fantastic non-profit organizations that feed the sick and hungry including Community Servings - Providing nutritious meals to the life-threateningly ill and their families in Massachusetts – and Share Our Strength – Fights child hunger nationwide with successful regional events such as Taste of the Nation Boston. I’m always up for supporting a good cause, especially when it’s tied to something I already believe in such as Green living and sustainability.
FEED Projects (co-founded by Lauren Bush) has made an exclusive deal with Whole Foods to provide the FEED 100 reusable shopping bag. Purchase this organic cotton and burlap bag for $29.99 and you’ll provide 100 nutritious meals to hungry school-age kids in Rwanda via the United Nation World Food Program’s School Feeding Program (wow that’s a mouth full).
Since you should already be using reusable shopping bags, this shouldn’t be a painful purchase because you’re feeding hungry kids in a struggling country and helping reduce waste in your own community. The bag isn’t a FENDI, but is at least it’s devoid of the gigantic store slogans others have. It could even go as far as being stylish. Imagine that!
