The Green Bag Lady

bag_1597Recently we attended the Food Inc. movie at the Belcourt Theatre in Nashville. The Green Bag Lady was in the parking lot giving away her cool handmade bags from discarded fabrics. Here I am with my bag in the 12th South area. I forwarded a photo to her which will be uploaded to her website.

I learned that she will be at Fido’s in Hillsboro Village Saturday, July 11. She will have bags to give away.

I love her slogan: Paper or plastic? Fabric.

Cigarette Litter Prevention Program

CigButts_1327Since becoming involved with Keep America Beautiful, I have started a Cigarette Litter Prevention Program in Hillsboro Village. Today, I did the preliminary scan walking from the post office on Acklen to 21st to Belcourt and back to the post office on Acklen. I counted 400 plus cigarette butts on the sidewalks. Most were in front of Fido’s and Jackson’s. Fido’s has a cigarette ash receptacle in front of their coffee shop, but it was overflowing.

When I initially walked the area two weeks ago, I noticed that the cigarette ash receptacle was full.

My next step will be to talk with the restaurant and bar owners in the village to see if they will distribute portable cigarette ashtrays.
