I had so much fun at the Northridge JCPenney store last weekend to introduce the Linden Street line to the associates and customers. I couldn't help myself but do a little shopping myself, so here I am buying lots of beautiful bedding, towels and other home accessories for some friends of mine.
You might notice that the shopping bags are cloth bags. Good eye! They are the new Simply Green designated reusable tote bags from JCPenney and I absolutely adore them. They have a flat bottom on the bags with a hard insert so they stand upright even when totally empty. And the 100% cotton fabric (unbleached of course) is super strong and soft to the touch. And I love the field grass pattern all over the tote. Plus, they are just $1.99 (hello! Eco bargain!) with proceeds going to the After School Fund at JCPenney helping kids across America. So, each bag helps the environment and kids, too.
Here's a close-up of the tote bags all lined up by the cash register. I saw lots of people buying them when I was there! I also bought a bunch and gave them away for free to some lucky customers.
And here's the little information sign about the totes. Can you believe they are only $1.99?
Okay, so I have a bunch to give away. You know the drill: Leave a comment why you need a reusable tote bag. Five lucky random winners will be chosen by early next week. And please be sure to leave a way I can contact you via email or your personal blog. I'll email you directly from AOL account: firstname.lastname@example.org…. so if you hear from anyone else, you know it's not legit.
Good luck! And enjoy the totes. Hope you like 'em as much as I do!
