    • Amber says:

      As much shopping as I do I would love to show of the the Viva La Vera Earth Day Shopping Tote as I do my shopping ! I just Love my Vera !!!!

      • Eileen Beyer says:

        Trying to celebrate earth day-but the weather isn’t cooperating. I had plans to work in the garden…weeding, moving some butterfly bushes and cutting the asparagas. It might have to wait until the sky clears or perhaps I’ll put on a raincoat as the forecast doesn’t show much promise for about a week. 😦

    • Helen Smith says:

      Love it! I could always use a new one!!

    • Kristin Boni says:

      To celebrate Earth Day, we cleaned out our house of old clothes and household goods. We are donating them to a local charity. I also use reusable shopping bags. Additionally, we cut down some trees in the yard and are chipping them into mulch for the flower beds.

    • Sandra W. says:

      I love reusable shopping bags. They are much more durable and definitely cuter than those plastic bags!

      • Lori says:

        Today on earth day we are out enjoying God’s beautiful earth. It would be so fun and cute to carry an adorable reusable tote to store our games while we play outside!

      • Carol says:

    • Aly says:

      I love the Earth Day bag!

    • Holly says:

      I’m headed to the market to buy some herbs, so I can grow them in my garden. That way, I can avoid buying the herbs that are packaged in plastic and glass because they hurt the environment. The less you consume, the more you save the Earth! I live by that saying every day! Happy Earth Day, everyone! πŸ™‚

    • michelle says:

      this would go great with all my other Vera re-usables!

    • Ann Aylman says:

      I, too, will celebrate earth day by using reusable shopping totes – would love the Vera! Also, no longer use disposable cups for coffee at work, use a mug!

    • Martha says:

      I always keep reusable totes in my car for shopping. I would love a new one as they are getting worn out! By making coffee at home and using a reusable coffee filter and mug I am saving trees. Newspaper subscriptions are available on the Internet to save paper. Old clothes that are not in condition to be given away can be used as rags instead of paper towels. My family also plants a vegetable garden and trees where we can to help the Earth. If we all make a small changes in what we do and how we do things Earth will be a more beautiful and healthy place.

      To celebrate Earth Day, my family and I are turning off all lights and electronic devices (T.V., computer etc.) for an hour, and we are all planting some new flowers in the backyard that we bought, which is fun for the whole family! Happy Earth Day:)

    • Cris Alves says:

      I use reusable bags for everything – grocery shopping, packing items to take to the cabin, storing items in my vehicle. I always keep a couple of bags in my vehicle in case I need them for a spur of the moment shopping excursion. It would be great to have a bag that is CUTE – like the Viva la Vera bag. My sister would continue to tease me, because everything I own is “flowers.” We need to use reusable bags to save our beautiful earth.

I know that tote would be a hit when packing items for taligating this fall for Purdue Football.

One day when he is older and left our home we will be able to look at the tree and think of him.

    For Earth Day, My family and I are going to finish raking the leaves in the backyard and work on making a compost pile. With Spring here, I am in awe of the color and leaves. Real Natural Beauty. Then we are off to plant our herb garden to grow our own herbs. Happy Earth Day!

    I use reusable bags everyday when I go shopping at the grocery store, and all stores.

  132. Liz Adams says:

    I always use reusable shopping bags. Always. We are also trying harder than normal to help the kiddos to remember to turn off lights (or not use them during the day) and to reduce the use of napkins and paper towels.

      I loved the Lorax and loved it as a kid. I bought the movie and book for my kids because it was such a wonderful book!! Enjoy!!

  154. Nancy says:

    Today, my kids and I are cleaning up the litter around our neighborhood. It is sad to watch people just drop it on the ground! My oldest (10) yr old just came home from the hospital (sick and in the hospital over spring break, yuck) so she will wear her earth day shirt but no picking up litter for her! WE will use newspaper in our easter baskets instead of easter grass. I wish we could make every day Earth Day.

  155. Jody Campbell says:

    Love the shopping bag – can’t wait to use it (for more than groceries).

  157. Misty says:

    I ❀ Vera Bradley!! Happy Earth day everyone!!!

  158. Traci Best says:

    We are staying home today and reusing what we have instead of buying new. We are also getting creative cooking with what is in the house instead of running out to buy ‘a few things’ because we don’t have everything for dinner. (We had a kitchen fire a couple weeks ago and had to throw out about 1/2 the pantry food.)

  159. Brooke says:

    Earth day! πŸ™‚ We will continue to recycle, and we are changing all light bulbs to the enery-save type. Also, I got rags to clean with rather than paper towls. πŸ™‚

    On this Earth Day I challenged my first graders to start recycling at home!

  168. Anita says:

    I always use the recycle shopping totes and would love a Vera one.

  169. Tracy Goldbach says:

    I celebrate Earth Day everyday by recycling even though our township doesn’t require it and we need to take our recyclables to the township building to be put into the bins there. Getting the kids/husband to do this with me is more of a chore than the actual running around. We also use reusable water bottles and lunch bags all the time.

  170. Mandy Laymon says:

    Today I will love the Earth by dropping off paper at the recycling center. Since it’s just down the street from my house we are going to load up the wagon and walk. No need to use the car!!!

  174. LeAnn says:

    I am celebrating Earth Day by letting all of customers know that instead of plastic bags they should use reusable bags!! Earlier this month my family participated within the Pride Clean Up and we picked up the trash on the sides of our road and drooped it off at the local recycling center, even though it was earlier we did it in honor of Earth Day! πŸ™‚ happy earth day!

  175. Melissa says:

    I’m going to plant new perennials in my garden and use my reusable totes all day today!

  176. Susan Evans says:

    Living in the Ithaca, NY area, every day is like Earth Day so there should be some interesting Earth Day celebrations going on today. We try to use reusable shopping bags every time we go to the store and most of the places to eat have compostable “plasticware” and compost bins, so it’s easy to be earth friendly here

  177. Debbie Winkler says:

    I have my trunk loaded to recycle Monday, have plastic shopping bags to recycle at the store tomorrow, I will take plastic food storage containers to my Sister’s so I can bring home Easter leftovers!

  178. Samantha says:

    I would love one of these!

  183. meg says:

    I’m going to participate in a neighborhood clean up!!!

GO EARTH DAY!

  188. Kim says:

    To celebrate Earth Day, I will try to sell customers a reusable grocery bag to pack their groceries in and for single orders I will ask if they need a bag for the item thus reducing the amount of plastic bags going out of the store that I work at.

  205. Hannah says:

    It’s a great bag to carry to the park, carry grocceries, and just help the earth! This is a great way to make sure the earth is going to be here longer. I would defenitly buy this bag!

We had to minimize our electronic use (e.g. television watching) at night this whole week and she planted chives at school. She also learned all about recycling and now wants to do it at home, so this weekend we will be getting tubs to help sort our paper and plastic. How can you so “no” to that?? Happy Earth Day!

    Hold on to what you believe, Even if it’s a tree that stands by itself.
    Hold on to what you must do, Even if it’s a long way from here.
    Hold on to your life, Even if it’s easier to let go ~ Pueblo Indian prayer

  426. Tara says:

    Today I am using my travel mug for my morning cup of coffee instead of a paper cup. I have my shopping totes ready for all of my shopping and errands. I am making homemade yogurt and will store in a glass container to reduce waste. We will not be using paper towels, cups, napkins, or paper plates for the day. I may be washing a lot of dishes and dish towels but it will be rewarding when I come home with my shopping totes full of flowers and plants for our garden. Happy Earth Day & Happy Easter!

  427. Kate says:

    As a teacher, I plan to revolve today’s reading and math lessons around Earth day and discuss the importance of it and what it represents and how to use the three R’s (reduce, reuse, recycle). Things first graders can understand and somewhat relate to!

  428. Taryn says:

    I will remember my reusable bags for grocery shopping. Buy a larger recycling bin.

  429. mary brookshire says:

    Shopping only with reusable bags!! No more plastic! Yours are my fav– they are the best!!!

  430. Sherry says:

    Loving the shopper totes! We’ve become a Vera household. I even got a lanyard for my ID at work. πŸ™‚

  431. Carrey Hoese says:

    I saved the plastic bads that I get from Walmart and Target and reuse them for garbage bags in our smaller trash containers. They also go in our camper for garbage.

  432. Regina D. says:

    Today, I will be planting new flowers and a new tree in our yard with my 7 y/o son and discussing the importance of recycling by returning bottle deposits.

  433. Brandy Bagley says:

    To celebrate Earth day, my two-year-old daughter and I are using the reusable shopping bags on our weekly grocery store trip. We only have two, but pack them to bursting if we have to. My daughter says “No plastic mommy. It makes the world sad.” (God bless PBS and their child friendly eco-awareness programs!) We’ve also chosen several plants, flowers and a couple of trees that we will plant today as well. πŸ™‚ Happy Earth Day everyone! And remember that we don’t want to world to “be sad”!

  434. Ruth Minkoff says:

    A beautiful bag! We would use it for shopping at the farmers market or filling it with “stuff” for long awaited days at the lake!

    To celebrate Earth Day, I am saving and recycling Capri Sun containers. I also use my travel mug for most trips to the coffee shop!

  436. I love Vera and I would love this tote. I especially love the spring colors, so bright and colorful. I would love this beautiful tote to carry and cut down on our recycles. My husband and I do recycle, but there is always room to do more.

  437. Wendy Wright says:

    To celebrate Earth Day I am going to see what kind of resuable items I can find for my Pre-K class can use to make some art projects. To the kids almost nothing is garbage; it can eaily become a treasue. The resuable tote would be great to collect these items in to travel back and forth to school.

  438. janet says:

    Love the tote.
    I have been using a lot less paper towels with an investment in a package of 3.99 washcloths. We use them for everything. Most of my cleaning, use and just toss into the laundry. We use maybe 1 paper towel roll a week, in a house of 7 people.
    Also group my errands together to use less gas, and I hang my clothes to use less electricity

  439. Carrie says:

    Planting new flowers, and mulching to save water! Riding our bikes out to the beach this afternoon to enjoy the beauty of Earth! Getting my free coffee with my re-usable cup!

To celebrate Earth Day today, we plan to take our reusable travel coffee mugs to Starbuck’s for some free coffee/tea. Enjoy the day everyone!!!

    We celebrate our planet Earth everday by using reusable shopping bags to grocery shop.

  469. Casey says:

    We celebrate earth day with our girl scout troop picking up trash around the schools in our neighborhood. The girls also used recycled items to make crafts. One was a soup can painted and used to plant an herb.

  470. Amy Clive says:

  483. Lisa Muzzey says:

    To celebrate Earth Day and spring we are cleaning up the sides of the road in our neighborhood. I also use totes for everything – my friends call me the bag lady. A Vera tote would add a little pizazz to the collection!!!!

  484. Mary Beth Wagner says:

    Happy Earth Day. We strive to recycle and I teach my children how to not be wasteful and to be mindful of the garbage they are producing. This earth day I discussed with my daughter how we use plastic containers for the foods in her lunchbox rather than plastic baggies which fill up landfils. We also just ordered reusable sandwich and snack baggies through a fundraiser at her school.

    Today we will keeps lights off when not needed, flush less, turn water off when brushing teeth and look for new things that can be recycled into projects rather than trash.

  485. Kelly Jordan says:

    How cute!! Love it!! Keeping my fingers crossed!! πŸ™‚

    • Kelly Jordan says:

      Recycling clothes and other items in our home that we won’t be taking with us when we move. Landfills are full enough. Homeless shelters and longterm behavioral care facilities can use anything people can give. πŸ™‚

  486. Deb says:

    VIVA Earth day! I have been recycling since the very first one – I think all Vera-holics should have a shopping bag. I am actually considered a recycling Nazi, and don’t hesitate to call people out for throwing away plastic and aluminum! We also need some cute nylon bags we can carry in our Vera purses so we don’t have to use those plastic store bags! maybe a small and large set!

  487. Orpha says:

    We are a three generation of women loving Vera! Mom is 88 and enjoys several; I have WAY too many and love them all; and my daughter who is a park ranger, carries things to and from her job as well, in Vera(maybe there should/could be a pattern of trees and flowers to celebrate the earth, in the signature fabrics, for those more earthy, outdoors women?)

    I am celebrating Earth Day by reusing grocery bags and going around the neighborhood cleaning up litter. I am also hanging out laundry to dry instead of using the dryer.

  498. Karol Ann says:

    I always try to remember my reusable bags when I shop! I find that many places sell the bags now and instead of getting another souvenir that I don’t know what to do with, I get a bag that I know I can use. I would LOVE to have a Vera reusable bag for my collection.

  499. Linda Laverentz says:

    I will be going through my closet and cleaning out all the items I don’t wear, and taking them to good will or a consignment store for them to reuse to sell. πŸ™‚ Clean closet, and affordable clothes for others….Happy Earth Day!!

    We recycle everything we can at our house. Today’s Earth day I will drop off some gently used clothing at Goodwill, and use my tumbler when I pick up my ice tea.

    For Earth day, we will be doing the same thing we do every day. We use reusable shopping bags everywhere we go. We recycle as much as possible and we keep our energy and gas usage down to a minimum.

  554. Kristi Chamberlain says:

  558. Christy Pasnisin says:

    My friend is hosting a kids play date and the them is Earthday Birthday.

  560. alisha borton says:

    Hello! I am celebrating Earth day by using my reusable bags when I goto the grocery! I usually forget them!! Lol they are sitting on my front seat today!

  561. Rebekah says:

    To celebrate Earth Day this year, I am going to find some creative ways to eliminate waste. One that I have come up with is to use cloth napkins rather than paper ones and we use all biodegradable cleaning products (including shampoo and conditioner) and I am already taking public transit rather than drive and we are buying a motorcycle and scooters for our vehicles and selling the car to use gas and pollution from emissions and we have an electric powered lawnmower and weedeater vs. a gas one, and we have always used reusable glass containers for food for packed lunches and we reuse aluminum foil and have a home composter in the backyard…so we always try to do the best we can to help our planet, if we dont, it wont last long enough for anyone else to do it. So its up to us to make the changes necessary to protect our planet (and ourselves by extension, because without clean drinking water or the ozone layer, we are all facing imminent death)

  562. Jen Burns says:

    I have been making coffee at home and using the reusable mugs for hot and iced coffee that I bought. I went from buying coffee once a day to maybe once a week when I am out and don’t have access to make it at home.
    I also am teaching my 2 year old about recycling and trying to encourage my husband to recycle more too!!
    We planted a garden with my 2 year old last weekend and tomorrow we plan to plant a tree for Earth Day.

  575. Jaime says:

    We have recently started using the re-usable totes! I think they’re fun and a great way to save on using plastic bags! I do find the prettier the bag is the more likely I am to continue to use them! I’ve been getting plain canvas ones and embroidering things on them to help me want to use them!

    Happy Earth Day!

  576. Allison C says:

    For earth day I am saying good by to disposable bags and paper cups, I am having my morning coffee in a reusable mug and my water in a reusable water bottle πŸ™‚ ! That tote would make my eco-friendly shopping very very pretty!!!

    Going Green with a Vera Bradley Bag, wow! When I use my bag from past designs I always feel special with a Vera on my arm. Helping out the earth at the same time! Why use paper or plastic when you could have a Vera!!!!!!!

    We recycle everything we can at my house. From books, purses, clothes, shoes, and we have a huge community that takes anything that can be recycled. I am so hooked I even check the trash in the house, if the kids throw anything out. They have to pick out rinse it and recycle on their own.

  594. Kristi Chaney says:

    I am picking up litter πŸ™‚

  595. Terri Fults says:

    For this Earthday, I am taking my family and my Girl Scout Troop to do a litter pick up in our community with the local Lions Club. Following the litter pick up we are headed to a local Nursing home and we are planting a few trees and starting a flower, vegetable and herb garden so the patients can have a little piece of home and the Nursing home is allowing them to use the herbs in some of the cooking. We are then going to have a lunch at a local park over an open fire and using recycleable products and finishing with a craft using plain reusable totes, gather leaves, sticks and stones and laying them on the totes and then using natural dyes like tea bags and things and spray around the leaves and things and when it dries it will look like a nature scene on the bag and be reusable without using chemicals and harmful items! =) Happy Earthday. Keep saving the Earth and recycle everything you can! Make your footprint!

  596. debbie bernstein says:

  610. Jill Messing says:

    I love when people promote Earth Day! Many of our lives are too busy to stop, think, and plan for how simple/little changes can help our Earth and communities. VB, your products are always wonderful! Thanks!

  611. Megan Fetters says:

    We are starting our seeds for the garden today! The kids love it!

    I always use reusable bags for shopping and this would be a wonderful one to add to my collection!

  614. Katie Murray says:

    I always use reuseable cups at work and home. I also am going to buy one of the water bottles that has a filtration system built in!

  615. Anne Denner says:

    My beautiful 7 yr. old grand daughter has got me into recycling. Amazing what we can learn from our children.

  616. Deana Rooks says:

    In addition to reusuable totes (none this cute) my husband and I are huge recyclers. I work at a hotel and they do not recycle so once a week we pack up 8 huge garbage bags of recycle stuff and truck it to our house to put our with our stuff.

    Thanks πŸ™‚

  617. Jill Ladd says:

    That bag is fantastic !! well, we kind of celebrate Earth day each day…..we sold our truck and bought a Prius. LOVE the gas mileage on that car. I use cloth bags everytime I go food shopping….we use mugs, that our company made, for refillable drinks (to cut down on styrofoam cup use at work) . At home, we changed our bulbs out to CFL’s and we recycle everything we can.
    We are always aware of what we can be doing to make it better…
    Happy Earth Day !!

  618. Sara says:

    If it ever stops raining, I will be planting flowers and a vegetable garden! If it’s too wet to plant, we will be doing some shopping with reusable bags.

    I don’t celebrate Earth Day once a year but try to do my part every day. Using reusable totes to do my shopping and bring my lunch in reuseable plastic containers.

  625. Dolores says:

    Earth day should be everyday. Recycling paper, plastic, aluminum; using cloth napkins and cleaning rags; Shopping locally at farmer’s markets; composting, etc. all make a daily impact on our planet. Doing it with a cute bag like the Viva la Vera tote just makes is fun to be good!

  626. cathy waugh says:

    So cute!!! I’m switching to low energy light bulbs.

  628. Beth says:

    Happy Earth Day! No dryer for me as I hung out my clothes to dry. I will be using my reusable shopping bags at the food store, this morning. I will drink my water in my travel mug as I do everyday. I will recycle my cans and eat my fresh organic fruits and vegtables. I will cook our dinner with fresh organic homemade ingredients. I cant plant any trees but will do my part in about three weeks when we plant some vegtables and herbs (chemical free of course) for us to enjoy this summer. And if time permits I will continue making my own cloth napkins! I have made about 8 so far. This winter I knitted my own dish cloths, and hand towels. Boy do I have my eye set on that Vera Bradley shopping bag! It is beautiful!! Happy day to all.

  629. Cheryl says:

    Planting my free tree from Lowe’s, drinking Starbuck’s from my travel mug, and dropping off some items at the local recycling bin!

  636. Renee Lindemann says:

    Rode the bus into town this morning instead of driving! Later, going to buy flowers and plants for the yard at my new house!

  637. Amy M says:

    i have pretty much stopped using plastic water bottles and I love my shopping bags. Lowes is giving away free tree’s so I am thinking of getting one and planting it too!!!

  638. Kelly J. says:

    Recycling clothes and other items in our home that we won’t be taking with us when we move. Landfills are full enough. Homeless shelters and longterm behavioral care facilities can use anything people can give.

    What a cute bag! Happy Earth Day!!

  639. Elizabeth Hauser says:

    I get a recycleable bag everywhere that I go. I use them for all of my shopping, I carry my library books, you name it, I carry it.

    My family and I love vegetables, so rather than go buy them from the store and use the gas. We are doubling the size of our garden this year so we can plant even more vegetables. Plus, one of my jobs is close enough that now, with the nice weather starting, I get to ride my bike to and from work. Who does not enjoy a nice bike ride?

  645. Kristina White says:

  649. Kelly Khachadourian says:

    Earth Day…..It is wonderful that most companies have joined in the Green Life!!!
    Vera Bradley especially!!! My daughter and I have soooooo many Vera bags it is hard

  655. Amanda says:

    This year we will be taking the kid’s to their first beach clean up; their dad protects our waters for a living, so what better way to spend Earth Day than cleaning up Daddy’s “office!”

  656. A. Recitas says:

    We’re a recycling household so we celebrate Earth Day every day! I love the VB tote bags! They’re pretty and durable and a great addition to my ever growing collection of recycle shopping bags!

  657. Susie says:

    I love using reusable totes wherever I shop! I would love to add Viva la Vera to my collection! To celebrate Earth Day (everyday) I pack my lunch using reusable containers and refill my aluminum water bottle all day long instead of using plastic bags and bottles.

  667. Valerie Stasalovich says:

    Sounds silly but if I need to use a paper napkin or paper towel I will get as much mileage out of it as possible! I often thaw in the microwave with bread wrapped in a napkin. I’ll then use that napkin at the table and clean the plates off with it when I’m done!

  696. Ann Wynes says:

    We can’t celebrate Earth Day JUST today! We all must commit to using those recycling bins, planting trees, protecting our wildlife,cutting down on driving (should be easy to do with these gas prices!) If everybody would change just one little thing, such as reusable bags, travel cups, separating trash, what a difference we could all make. With beautiful bags like this one, we can still be fashionable while helping Mother Earth!

  697. Beth shetley says:

    I LOVE the bag!!! I will recycle cans to celebrate Earth Day!

  698. Meghan says:

    To celebrate Earth Day I am recycling and reusing. Also planning ways to not just change my ways on Earth Day but make changes every day. Every little bit helps.

My 6 year old decided that he wanted to start composting and we now have a compost bin. Between composting and recycling we have cut our trash into a quarter of what it used to be.

  703. Kristen says:

    What a cute way to go green!

  704. Lindsay Sorgenfrei says:

    To celebrate Earth Day took a bus to work instead of driving.

    Love the Vera reusable bags! Go Earth Day!

  708. Melissa says:

    I will be walking to lunch today–even in the rain! Happy Earth Day!

  709. Karen Murdy says:

    To celebrate Earth day-my kids and I are going to walk instead of driving and pick up trash along the road! I love this reusuable bag-I use them whenever I can! Happy Earth Day!

  710. Sara Sturgeon says:

    Happy Earth Day!! What a beautiful bag!!!!!

  711. Becky McClure says:

    I celebrate Earth Day everyday. I keep my reusable bags in my trunk so that they are always ready to go to the store! I fill my reusable cup for my water everyday and recycle, recycle, recycle. I even got some new to me scarves that are made from recycled t-shirts!!

  712. Julie Mark says:

    Reusable water bottles, recycle, turn off lights and tv’s when leaving the room. All the little things add up. Happy Earth Day.

  713. Michelle W says:

    Oooh, if I get this I can put away my “Merry Christmas” Mickey Mouse bag! πŸ™‚

  714. Kaitlyn says:

    For earth day we try to make our home more green inside. We also plant trees and flowers, and we pick up trash on the ground that people have left there. We are cutting down on driving every where because of gas prices.

  715. Darcie & Lilly Mae says:

    Today we will celebrate Earth Day by bringing gloves to the playground and picking up trash before we play!

  716. Diana Jacobson says:

    We use reusable grocery bags and we recycle our newspapers. We also try to recycle all our cans, bottles and plastic bags. I don’t like seeing bags blowing around that could endanger the wild life.

  717. Kimberly Burke says:

    We are recycling old cell phones and batteries, taking old paint to the village to be disposed of properly and then going to the zoo πŸ™‚

  718. Katie says:

    This Earth Day is rainy and cold! So I grabbed myself a happy Vera Bradley bag for the day and headed off to work! Each year I take my daughter, now 6 years old, to a store and we buy a tree to plant!

  719. Jenny says:

    Recycling! Which we do everyday but really get the kids involved!

  720. Candice says:

    LOVE ITTTTT πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  722. Jean H says:

    I love vera’s reusable totes – makes it fashionable to be green!

  723. Madelyn Brenner says:

    I carpool to school and I use my Vera Bradley lunchbox everyday instead of wasting paper or plastic bags!

  724. Jill Putnam says:

    We use reusable shopping bags, recycle our paper, plastic, glass and cans…and my daughter and I will be planting some this weekend!

  725. Dee Zander says:

    We use totes all the time. I leave them in my car for the grocery store, framers market, shopping mall or anyway I may need them. We also collect the tops of the plastics bottles from friends to recycle. We have stainless steel water bottles and use lunch bags instead of brown paper bags ever day. Not only does it save the enviroment but it saves us money also.

  726. Sherilyn says:

    I just went to my favorite coffee place and got my beverage of choice in my travel mug and will later get some groceries in my reusable tote!

  727. Christine Brearey says:

    I am hoping to plant a cherry blossom tree in my front yard today to celebrate Earth Day and maybe switch some of my bills to online payments to eliminate paper billing.

  728. Christy says:

    We celebrate Earth Day everyday…reusable travel mugs for morning commute coffee, reusable shopping bags for our trips to the store, and cloth diapers for our little 3 month old’s bottom.

    Happy Earth Day!

  729. Shae says:

    I love Earth Day!! We recycle everyday!

  730. LB says:

    My kids and I are going to plant trees today! I also plan on using reusable totes at the grocery store today. Of course, I’d look absolutely exquisite with one of your pretty bags. Maybe next trip??? πŸ˜‰

  731. Rozanne Whitworth says:

    I recycle everyday not only on Earth Day. I use reusable totes for EVERYTHING from shopping, traveling and my latest… moving! This way I didn’t have to use so many boxes. Needless to say my bags get some use. I would love to have a colorful tote rather than the boring, flimsy store totes I have now. Be earthwise everyday, not only today!!!!!!

  732. Michelle Jen says:

    Love it. Great way to celebrate earth day.

  733. My 3 year old son and I are planing a tree in honor of earthday!

  734. Kris M says:

    Checking out a rainwater barrel, would love a tote!

    • Ria Newberry says:

      We have 2! Do it. You won’t regret it. We could honestly use 2 more. They have them through our county water department and were very reasonable. I’ve seen people decorate them beautifully!

  735. Frances says:

    In respect for Earth Day! Today we are cutting the grass, and planting new flowers in the yard. As well as using resusable totes for all of our shopping needs today. Also adding a bird feeder, and bird bath to the back yard. Happy Earth Day!! Please Recycle!

  736. Tammy says:

    This would be a great bag to have for shopping for sure

  737. Kathi says:

    All year long I use reusable shopping bags. We also recycle our cans and plastic bottles. I always bring in my travel mug when I get coffee. For Earth Day we are planting a tree and have recycled the clothes we do not need any longer.

  738. Lauren K says:

    Planting seeds in our garden! I love Earth Day!

  739. leigh says:

    Thanks Vera for helping celebrate Earth Day with your kind offers. Vera Bradley is a fashionable staple we actually use to help save mother earth. Love & Prayers.

  742. Audrey williams says:

    We recycle newspapers and cans,some plastic!

  743. Becca says:

    Today I will be using my reusable totes for grocery shopping! I’ve been doing this for a few years now, and can only imagine how many plastic bags I alone have saved. This new Vera tote is gorgeous! If I can’t win one- hopefully I will be able to buy it! πŸ˜‰

  744. Judy says:

    would love to have one and use when i shop

  745. Jennifer Pence says:

    I just packed both my girl’s lunches completely waste free-no disposable paper or plastic! I even gave them both a real bamboo fork and a cloth napkin to compliment the thermos and plastic tupperware boxes. I then neatly placed all the goods in their Vera Bradley ‘Let’s Do Lunch’ lunch bag! Yum!

  746. Ria Newberry says:

    Today we’ll plant summer veggies to eat and ride our bikes instead of driving cars. One day a week we will do this to improve the planet and our bodies.

  747. Carol Tootalian says:

    Great topic! Just yesterday as I was in the check out line at the grocery store, I happened to look ahead and saw the display of the reusable shopping bags you can purchase and I made a mental note that next week when I do my shopping, I’m buying a bunch and am going to start using them. It kind of makes me sick to think of all the plastic bags I have thrown away over the years. I have been an avid recycler for over 20 years and every week I put out two bins of paper, cans, glass, etc. for trash collection. Luckily my community has curbside recycling. Anything not collected curbside goes to a recycling center.

  748. Alyssa says:

    I would love to win a bag! I hate people that make polution since my house is on an end of a road, everybody throws their garbage so I pick everything up! Also did you know that people shouldn’t use water bottles because if they do then the water bottle won’t get broken down and go into the Pacific. One last thing is if you really want world peace go outside and pick up garbage and help the Earth!:)

  749. Debbie Churchward says:

    I love this beautiful bag. Happy Earth Day

  750. Kelly Erickson says:

    I teach at our Y and re-fill my metal water bottle every time I go there. We are recycling our newspapers and other paper prods. today and I’ll be using my reusable totes for grocery shopping today.

  751. Gabby R. says:

    I always recycle at home, I’ve planted many plants and trees at home. My entire house has the energy saving light bulbs, all of my appliances are energy savers πŸ™‚
    When I shop I use my reusable shopping bags pretty much everywhere I go and if I have plastic bags at home I’ll reuse them around the house; my cleaning products are environmentally friendly for the most part. Earth day is pretty much everyday in my house πŸ™‚


  752. Laura says:

    Walk more -Drive less

  753. Lisa Hammett says:

    I am drinking my coffee at home this morning. I am using my Vera Bradley reusable bags (from previous years) when I shop today. I also use them for my business to carry catalogs & clip boards. I’m eating organic greens for lunch. My husband & I are putting our compost pile to good use – banana peels, cucumber peelings, onion skin………

  754. Audrey williams says:

    We recycle !

  755. Sharon Heaps says:

    I love reusable shopping bags!!! I think everybody should join in to be green and lessen the use of plastic bags, and to save trees by also lessen the use of paper bags.

    Plant a tree for earth day and reuse and recycle at all times when possible!

    Happy earth day!

  756. Janet M says:

    Every day is Earth Day for me! I am an arborist for a major city. Caring for and planting trees are primary parts of my profession. I quit buying bottled water last year. I now use a water filter and reusable cups/mugs/bottles. I try to intergrate public transportation into recreational travel to lessen my carbon foot print. The one habit I am yet to adopt is carrying the reusable bags. I think a cute VB one may just be the way to foster more green in my life =-)

  757. Cheryl McClendon says:

    This bag is soo cute! I can’t wait to carry my groceries home in one of these. Knowing me though, as cute as the bag is it will get used for much more than groceries!! πŸ™‚

  758. Christy Paganoni says:

    My husband and I are taking our little boy to see Disney’s African Cats, which opens today in celebration of Earth Day!

  759. Stephanie L. says:

    A great way to spend earth day with your kids is to teaching them about the importance of being green. From recycling and reusing things to watching how much water and energy we use, families can try some earth- friendly things in the kitchen. A Vera shopping bag would make the most stylish Mom in the store!

  760. Annie Anders says:

    Our goal is to model Earth Day everyday, so it will be a daily practice for our children in the future. Working on our compost pile, recycling and taking clothes to Goodwill are all part of our celebration today. Lovin’ the fun versitle Vera!

  761. Cecilia Mencer says:

    I LOVE VB. I am a HUGE fan and spend way too much money on new things that come out. I have gotten to know the staff at my local Hallmark where I buy my VB. They keep me posted on sales and new produts. This bag would be great to use to take to the stores so I don’t have to waste paper.

  762. Anthony S says:

    My wife would love this bag for her grocery shopping. We will be planting our garden this week.

  763. Jeanie says:

    Bags like this make it fashionable to carry your own and leave the generic bags at the store. Thanks so much!

  764. Dawn says:

    To celebrate earth day, I am using Vera Bradley reusable shopping bags as ‘Easter baskets’ stuffed with goodies for my friends and family.

  765. P. Mascaro says:

    I will be shopping with my sister using the reusable shopping bags she made for all my sisters out of old jeans. My Mom taught us all early to recycle and reduce waste. She recycled newspapers, cans, and bottles in the 1970’s through a drop off sight run by the local boyscout troop. All 6 of her kids continue to recycle through our respective local programs – she set a great example for us all!

  766. Staci says:

    We always recycle paper and plastics at our house. My 11 year old daughter was the one who campaigned so hard for this and finally even brought my mom around to it! My daughter even collects her used paper to send with me to my office to put in our collection bins we all have in our offices. We also use the cloth shopping bags instead of the plastic ones from the store. Today, I will go by Starbucks with my reusable coffee mug. I would really love to add the Viva La Vera Shopper Tote to my shopping bag collection! Happy Earth Day!

  767. Pam says:

    Earth Day was celebrated by community clean-up with high school students and various service organizations—–but, where is Spring!

  768. Amanda S says:

    I LOVE this bag! I celebrate Earth Day by celebrating my birthday!! πŸ™‚ I ususally plant in the garden and take my recycling to the recycling center.

  773. Trish says:

  774. Amy says:

    I love my reusable shopping bags from Harris Teeter but a Vera bag would be much cuter πŸ™‚ I love my Vera! Target even gives you a few pennies when you shop with your reusable bag! Today my 3 year and I will be decorating easter eggs and decorating the egg containers to display our art work. I hope everyone has a wonderful earth day and easter weekend!

  775. Dana Bates says:

    I love my Vera and use it for everything! It’s durable, beautiful and practical. If I am lucky enough to win this adorable bag I will give it to my sweet Mom who loves to shop! Then I’ll have to buy one for myself so I can also stop using plastic!

  776. Natilda says:

    In honor of Earth Day…I plan to keep doing what I have been doing…no plastic just reusable bags, drive my hybrid car, use my mug versus getting a cup of joe, recycling….CAUSE everyday should be Earth Day!!!

  777. Jennifer Aguilar says:

    We use reusable shopping bags when we go shopping. Also.. refilling a water bottle is good!

    To celebrate Earth Day I used my travel mug when I got coffee this morning and brought my resuable bags to do some shopping at lunch.

  785. Pam Trent says:

    Toting a Vera reusable bag is a beautiful way to remind everyone that its the little things we do each day that make such a big difference.
    We are a recycling family as is our entire neighborhood. We have all been amazed at the reduction in garbage since we adopted the recycling program. It is amazing the creative ways you can reuse everyday items. Some of our trash has found its way into craft projects as well as our gardens. A little effort goes a long way.

  786. Gail McMenamin says:

    To celebrate Earth Day I will REMEMBER to bring my bags into the grocery store with me instead of forgetting them in my car!!!

  787. Kyung says:

    I will look so fashionable as I recycle!

  788. Karen B says:

    My girls’ elementary school participates in the Terracycle program which recycles SO many items like candy wrappers, snack wrappers, juice pouches….so this Easter weekend/Earth Day as I put together the Easter goodie bags for the cousins, all of the candy bags (and any wrappers of candies that may somehow become unwrapped as I assemble the goodies) will be set aside for Terracycle and sent into school on Tuesday! Go Green!!

  789. Roxane says:

    I am using my travel mug as I always do and am using reusable grocery bags to do my shopping. I will also be walking to get my lunch as opposed to driving there today.
    Vera Bradley is awesome!! I love showing off my new things. What another great way to show her off by using her reusable bag.

  790. Erin Foley says:

    I spent last weekend participating in the Charles River Clean Up around Boston MA. We spent Saturday picking up trash along the river. Each little candy wrapper and styrofoamcup adds up! A little bit goes a long way. We filled MANY bags of trash and were thanked by the budding spring flowers and the onlooking ducks πŸ™‚

  791. edie bingaman says:

    Our Cub scout pack is leading a clothing drive for a homeless rescue mission…passing on the values of caring, sharing and reusing are priceless:)

  823. Char says:

    As a teacher, we spent the week talking about the earth and recycling. I save everything that can be used again in classroom projects, etc. More stores should follow Vera Bradley’s lead and give away reusable bags. We are win when they do!

  824. LorieR says:

    We try to be earth friendly all the time! We use cloth napkins and cleaning rags at home. Fill our recycling bin to the brim. I bring recyclables from the office. I’ve stocked the office with ceramic coffee mugs to encourage less use of the disposables. I purchase biodegradable cleaning supplies for the home and office. I use a DivaCup for feminine needs (Life changing seriously look it up). We use natural gardening and lawn care methods. We use reusable shopping bags and wine totes. Try to use fabric or reuse gift bags for holiday gifts. We keep a compost bin. We get our meat from a local farm through CSA. We try to purchase organic or local whenever we can. Once you make a few small changes it’s easy to make others!! Happy Earth Day!

    I already did two things this
    Morning. I made a decision to do away with buying bottled water and bought 2 water bottles for home and work.

  883. Jill Sharp says:

    I’m teaching my kids how to reuse items on their grandpa’s farm to make crafts.

  884. Heather Borden says:

    I took my VB totes to my first trip to the Annapolis Mall. We had visited the Lego store and were able to put all of our purchases in the totes and save 2 big Lego bags. We were also able to put our VB purchases in there and other stores. What a great way to look fashionable at the mall, much better than carrying the grocery store ones! I am hoping you make them in other prints, love how they are easy to clean also.

  885. Alice Benner says:

    I have started using reuseable bags at the grocery – every time!!!!! At first I had to put a reminder on my dashboard to remember to take the bags in with me, but now it is second nature to grab the bags before leaving the car. Also, I drive a Hybrid car and feel that it helps the environment.

  886. Kim Willis says:

    My children learned from a very early age that we recycle all paper, plastic and cans. We have 30 acres of land and we schedule trash collection days where we load up the tractor & trailer and go around our land, picking up the trash that people have thrown out. The kids think it’s fun to clean up “God’s green Earth”. We are trying to instill in them that we should always leave any place we visit cleaner than we found it!

  887. Katie says:

    To celebrate Earth Day we are using reusable grocery bags and cloth diapers!

  888. Jamie Rosenski says:
