toby's totes

My friend Toby will be offering these beautiful grocery and wine totes this fall and holiday season. Watch for them on our website at http://www.countrycupboardcookies.com/. I plan to offer them as a great gift with one dozen cookies. Go Green and purchase a cookie & tote gift for a good cause. More on this later. Below is her story and a link to her website.

Carry the Cause

When I couldn’t find an eco-friendly, durable, eye-pleasing shopping tote, I decided to create my own oil-cloth wine carriers and recyclable grocery bags. Reusable bags are an easy way to reduce waste and go green. Profits from your CtC purchase will be used to enhance the lives of individuals across the world.

Proceeds benefit these non-profit organizations:

Heifer International is an organization seeking to help end world hunger and poverty through self-reliance and utilizing resources. HI gives animals and their offspring to communities around the world. From this, skills and knowledge are spread to teach families how to care for the earth and how to create and encourage a long-term solution to sustainable living.

Darfur Peace and Development Org. seeks to support peace and development in Darfur, Sudan. DPDO provides development assistance to victims, and promotes awareness of the genocide worldwide. DPDO works to foster the reconciliation process through facilitating just governance in order to find a peaceful resolution to the devastating conflict.
