I just cut and pasted the following directly from the "Small Steps" website. Although these are not my words, I feel moved to include them in my blog. A new friend, Sharmila, told about this amazing project, and now I am telling you....
Think about it..
Do you want to make a difference, but do not know how? Do you think that only big steps and big actions can only make a difference?
Everyone around us can talk about problems. How many of us can think of solutions? Out of the ones who can talk about solutions, how many of us are ready to take a step forward and execute those solutions?
If you believe that environment needs solutions, and you are ready to join us in this move to clean the environment around us, read on.
Join us in taking simple solutions, join us doing those little things that make a difference...join us in taking ...Small Steps!
So what is the problem?
A simple solution
Carry a shopping bag always with you...
We have designed a compact little bag for you!
What can a little bag do?
- Every single bag can effectively prevent dumping of 200 throw-away plastic bags.
- Every single bag can provide a meaningful job to women who are empowering themselves.
- Every single bag can educate a whole family about environmental issues.
10 million handmade bags!
- We are making 10 million bags

"And get one of these great little bags. Get a dozen. I just love mine! The only thing better than having a little bag is giving a little bag to someone else. It is a perfect gift."
The words in quotes above ARE mine, and I really mean it. Bonnie
