This environmental bag by Green Woven Earth is fantastic because of several things. The first reason is because it's made out of a type of grass called buri, which is a palm grass coming from the Philippines that's extremely strong and durable. It was being used well before World War II for bags, mats and hats. After loom weaving was invented in the 70's, buri (also known as butan). Buri is mostly common in Asian countries. Secondly, since this bag is natural, it's made out of a sustainable source that's 100% biodegradable and will decompose when disposed of.
These are reusable eco-friendly bags that can be used anywhere, from going out with your friends to going for a picnic, doing your groceries, going to the gym, to the beach and even to the farmers' market. The tote bags are so strong that they will last a long time.
Green Woven Earth has several different styles, sizes and colors for all tastes (natural color, pink, blue, green and any mix of these), make sure to get at least one reusable bag because we've managed to get a coupon code and pass the discount to you! Take action, buy green and help our environment!

Ever wondered about why handmade goods cost more than something from the big box store? Here is the main reason:

Yep, the Somerset Mothers’ Union are knitting woolly breasts for the NHS. The group thought at first they were meant to knit 150 woolly vests, but nope the NHS requested the fake breasts. They're for helping new mothers learn about breast feeding. So, I'm afraid if you want one you're going to have to be a new mother or learn how to knit (article mentions patterns are online).
"In the past, trainers had to use balloons to demonstrate feeding skills,’ said infant feeding specialist Louise Stickland. Knitted breasts have been popular in the US for some time, where groups such as Knitting for Knockers make prosthetics for women hit by breast cancer."-MetroYep, the Somerset Mothers’ Union are knitting woolly breasts for the NHS.

“Handmade” is a surprisingly unusual, surreal short film from Brazil. It presents a dreamlike narrative of unrequited love, conveyed mostly through vexing metaphors that stick with you long after the film has ended. The use of color is exceedingly important, and each scene has a chromatic mood that serves as an important subtext to the action.
The film is a brilliant example of the power a short film can wield, mastering the challenges of telling a lifetime of emotions in just a few short minutes. It's story progresses like haiku and lightning, with magnificent bursts of everything almost all at once. “Handmade” shows and tells just as much as it needs to; experiences are distilled, stories are told not through dialogue and plot twists, but rather through nuance, color and a sense of larger “truths.”
This piece includes a number of unusual color photographs, as well as the acclaimed and intriguing short film, “Handmade.”“Handmade” is a surprisingly unusual, surreal short film from Brazil. It... more
