We'll have some holiday specials and certainly something different for those hard-to-buy people on your Christmas list. You can only get these babies from Bzz Bags, so find us online or see us at the Holiday Market in December. We'll keep a light on for you - wait, that one's been used. We'll keep a bag open for you - lame, but you get the idea.

Beth is working on some new combinations of tote bags (we like to call them Bzz Bags' bags for bags - 4Bs) with coordinated bulk food and produce bags. The first tests look very cool and work well for sure. We'll get some pictures of them here and on the website soon, but for now, here's one under construction.
Just wanted to thank everyone who was motivated to either buy our product or make their own in an effort to help save our planet one bag at a time. Remember to BYOB every time you go to the store. After you've done it 6 or 7 times, it starts becoming routine and you'd feel like you were missing something if you didn't pack them up.

Great strange story, but here is. About a year ago, with three dogs, two of them puppies at the time, we went to our son's graduation from the police academy in Salem. When we got home, we couldn't find our Exilim camera. It remained lost for at least two months. We found it in the backyard at our house under some straw. It had chew marks on it, but surprisingly enough, it still worked! But who was the evil doer (yes this could be a Halloween story for sure)?
After a bit, we decided to see the pictures from the graduation and what do you know, there were now three additional pictures at the end. Two pointed straight up at some trees in the backyard and one more - the one picture that would hold up in puppy court - the side of a red face. Only one of the dogs is red, so, busted! Its a little out of focus, but we're thinking about getting her some formal training.
The camera worked fine for about the next year, then last week - certain death. A new camera is on the way and I promise to get more pictures once it arrives. Until then, enjoy this shot of the Evil Eleanore probably tired after eating a phone or something. It took time, but eventually the dog ate my homework.
Come visit the Bzz Bags' website and help support our camera recovery program

Keep an eye out for them on the website soon. In the meantime, come on by and see us this Saturday at the Eugene Saturday Market. It'll be good to get back after a couple weeks away and see our new old friends and we plan to make some new ones. Don't forget to get your bags out of the drawer and take them with you to the store. They don't do any good unless you take them with, so make sure they are #1 on your shopping list.

Wanted to take a second and introduce our Bzz Bags coffee bean bag - one of our newer family members. As with all of our other bags, it is 100% cotton with an elastic band at the mouth of the bag for easy access. Just need to wrap a tie (supplied by the store) to the top with the product number. We reuse our tie a number of times to create less waste that way too.
So join the recycle, save and BYOB generation. One way is through our website at BzzBags.com. Another is to stop by the Saturday Market in Eugene and see us. Heck, make your own or find another vendor online, just do it (sorry Nike).

We wanted to share a picture of our newest set of bags to the Bzz Bag family. These are organic material. We'll be selling them in a set a seen here as well as individually - in two sizes. Take a look later this week on our website. We should have it updated by mid-week to include the new bags. I know a lot of people are really interested in using organic materials, so this is very exciting for us. Please visit us next Saturday or check it out online.

But, we were there none-the-less and missed seeing you if you decided to stay home or go to the Oregon Duck game. Next time, stop by on your way to or from the game really support the area artisans and the green world. If you insist on staying home, then visit us here or on our Bzz Bags website.
Our organic bags are just around the corner and our cotton bulk food and produce bags are ready to start using today. Hey, have you put in your two cents worth yet on how to remember to bring your bags to the store? You can post your thoughts on our contest post.
See you next weekend, right?

Hey, don't forget to go to our contest post and help us figure out the best way to remember to bring your bags to the store. It only does good to have some if you use them. Gotta start changing the mindset and old habits (hope I didn't offend any nuns out there reading this). We just extended the contest to last through the end of October to makes sure we get a stockpile of great ideas. Next subject is organic bags. We're just about done with our first set and will have them up and available on our website - BzzBags.com - in a week or so. These will cost a little more as the fabric is a bit pricier, but for those that find organic material important, it should be no problem. We're excited about being able to offer this new product along with all our other 100% cotton fabrics.

Met a lot of great people this weekend, so if you weren't there, you missed out. Here's some pics for you to soak in. I'm telling you, it was nice and the fountains help for a great ambiance.

No pictures to share yet, but it will be coming soon. Come on out to the Saturday Market in Eugene or visit the us at BzzBags.com to see what we've come up with for you.
So, until then, keep remembering to BYOB - Bring Your Own Bags. Whether you're buying from Bzz Bags, making your own or buying from someone else, the important thing is to remember to grab them, take them to the store and use them over and over again. We've got one planet and we should all think green - do the right thing - help save our planet one bag at a time. Recycle what you can't reuse and think about leaving this place in better shape than it when you first got to it. That's just got to make you feel good.

Okay, we'll pull the picture back a little and see if this helps.
Give up? Well, first of all, the bees love them when you let them bloom, but you've given up a good meal for it, so your decision. If you just let them go, the artichoke plants have a unique bloom and the pollinators seem to love it. So from our garden, to you your computer - the blooming artichoke.
Here's a couple more plants that the critters love. Remember, if we didn't have pollinating critters, there would be no need for Bzz Bags, because you wouldn't have any good food stuff to put in them.

Here's a picture of one little corner of the market this past week. We had a small 4' booth and talked to a lot of people about using resuable bags and being good friends of the environment. Cool stuff. And another shot of some of the local musicians. We look forward to seeing you here next week.

Well, I'm not sure "up and running" is exactly correct, but it is functional. BzzBags.com is finally a reality. Just having the opportunity to get the message out in a different format is really exciting. All of our various bag set combinations are up to date and available for purchase. I'm also thrilled to help anyone make their own shopping bags - the point is to use less plastic that fills up the landfill and stays there for years and years.
I've notice that there are a growing number of sites out there now that offer similar type bags for sale. Some of them are on my links here. I love it! I hope more and more show their faces and continue to help save our planet, one bag at a time. Remember to BYOB - bring your own bags - when you shop.
We're also going to have some animal only bags on tapirback.com - my sister-in-law's long standing site for animal preservation. Nothing like a picture of a tapir with a plastic bag in its mouth to make you want to keep this stuff out of the landfill.
Enjoy your bag journey helping keep our planet clean and alive for future generations. Thanks
