Saturday Market - Eugene 7/18

Got a lot of feedback from our give away of bags from last week. We heard and saw people using them at the market today and it really feels like a grass roots push. Can't wait to start hearing from people at the grocery stores in the area.

It was warm today in Eugene - low 90's, with a decent turn-out. Here's a picture of a local pirate. Okay, probably not a pirate, but he did have a bird on his shoulder. They don't allow dogs at the market, so I'm only guessing here, but this must have been his next best choice - man's second-best friend.
Speaking of birds, we've started to Twitter - so feel free to check it out on the site. You can also see the most recent twitters just to the right of this - second from the top.
Have a great one folks and don't forget to Bring Your Own Bags (BYOB) when you go to the store. Lot's of folks are starting to now and its definately the thing to do. Get ours, make your own, buy from someone else, just do it. Its fun to watch things change and head in a more responsible direction and its even more fun to know that you're part of the change.

I have lots of bags. Can you give me some pointers on how to remember to TAKE THEM TO THE STORE and then TAKE THEM OUT OF THE CAR? I am seriously bag-challenged here! Maybe you could do a survey and post on this subject!

Funny you should ask about remembering the bags. I just tweeted about that and then saw your comment. Good point. My tweet mentioned simply keeping a set in the trunk. I'll see what others think.
