5 UNFORGETTABLE ways to go green in your shop…and watch the bags of greenbacks come pouring in!

  1. Bag yourself great tote bag store samples by holding a challenge or contest! Give staff or customers or both the green light to make designs from Unforgettable Tote Bags, and hang all entries from the ceiling for votes from everyone who comes into the store. Award the winners with green certificates for store merchandise. You'll attract book and fabric sales, and boost registration for a class based on any of the 20 designs in the book.

  2. Set up a green display, with natural, undyed cotton fabrics, hand-dyeds made in the USA, organic cotton, bamboo, and wool batting, ready-made canvas bags, non-toxic fabric paints and dyes, and of course, the first book in a make it green series, Unforgettable Tote Bags.

  3. Offer inspiration for keepsake gift tags—just like fabric postcards, with your holiday prints, fusibles, and interfacings.

  4. Get lots of new foot traffic into your store, where they'll have such an unforgettable experience, they'll keep coming back! Convince neighboring grocery stores, supermarkets, and farmers' markets that by letting you set up a go-green booth some morning, you'll be cross-fertilizing a brighter image in the community for both your retail outlets! Display products and samples from your store, plus coupons and newsletters. Demo some of the quick and easy techniques from Unforgettable Tote Bags, too.

  5. Put on an unforgettable store event! Celebrate Earth Day (April 22) or have a Green Day event anytime! Serve local farm-market veggies and dips, Solicit customers' ideas for going green, and reward those with the best submissions with green coupons for merchandise, including Unforgettable Tote Bags.
