if you've been reading this blog for awhile, you might recall my letter to old navy asking them to reconsider sending out hundreds of thousands of plastic bags as part of their "stuff & save" promotion.
i am thrilled to report that it seems they have listened.
a good friend of mine mentioned to me today that her sister recently got a card in the mail from old navy. instead of having a plastic bag attached, the card simply explained the stuff & save promotion, and invited customers to come to any old navy store for a free reusable tote bag in which to stuff. apparently there was also some eco-related verbiage on the card, but i didn't get one in the mail yet so i can't quote it directly.
kudos to old navy. this is a nice step towards being an environmentally responsible company, and i hope others in the marketplace take note.
is this nothing more than a great coincidence? maybe. of course, i prefer to imagine that i am singlehandedly saving the planet. who shall i write to next?
