Go GREEN with Capucines Boulevard art gallery - Part II

Capucines Boulevard art gallery http://www.capucinesboulevard.com/ not only sells green products (see our previous post on May 21, 2008), it is also proud to be able to apply as many green rules in its own work/operations as possible. Since we are a virtual company, we:

1. don't produce any carbon emissions (our employees don't commute to work)

2. don't produce any waste

3. don't consume any extra electricity

4. have virtually paperless operations (even our contracts exist and are "signed" on-line) - we guess we have already saved several trees :-)

5. we promote the beauty of Mother Nature through the works we exhibit in our gallery:

Go GREEN with Capucines Boulevard art gallery - Part I

Nowdays everybody is concerned about the well-being of our planet and we all understand that it is impossible to make huge improvementss over night but everyone can contribute his/her own little bit to protect the environment.

It is much easier to change your own habbits than to change the world and these little steps combined will make a big difference. Capucines Boulevard art gallery chalenges you to stop using plastic bags and go for reusable canvas totes!
Did you know that Americans throw away almost 100 billion plastic bags every year, and only 1 percent to 3 percent are ever recycled?

What’s So Bad About Plastic Bags? Plastic bags are not biodegradable. They clog waterways, spoil the landscape, and end up in landfills where they may take 1,000 years or more to break down into ever smaller particles that continue to pollute the soil and water.

Plastic bags also pose a serious danger to birds and marine mammals that often mistake them for food. Thousands die each year after swallowing or choking on discarded plastic bags.
Finally, producing plastic bags requires millions of gallons of petroleum that could be used for transportation or heating.

In our gift shop http://www.cafepress.com/capucinesblvd?s=capucinesblvd&type=17 we offer convenient canvas totes which you can use for shopping, taking lunch to work, taking piles of workload from work (you know those files and folders that don't fit in any of your handbags), going to the beach or to picnic and so on.

Our canvas totes are inexpensive, spacious, light but durable and can be folded to fit in any bag, even your pocket. But the biggest fun is that we offer nearly 60 designs to choose from!! All images on the totes are original art works created by the members of our gallery around the world.

Here are just some examples to choose from:

Let's work together to save our planet!!!
P.S. All the original artwork you can find in our gallery www.capucinesboulevard.com
