I was on my way to work this morning when I noticed this bus driving next to me. I see school buses and city buses on my way to work nearly everyday, but this one stood out because it was green! Then I saw Oshkosh Transit System painted on the side.
So I did some digging and discovered that Oshkosh was unveiling new ‘green’ buses – green in both color and hybrid functionality. Now riders can go about their daily activities while having a positive impact on the environment.

Most of us are trying to do something that is good for the environment – or at least something that moves us in the right direction. But, we’re not perfect.
These bags, created by www.knockknock.biz, are based on that idea. Have a close look at the copy and graphics – you’ll see what I mean!
I picked one up at Urban Girl Accessories at the Seaport Village Shops in downtown San Diego.
I’ll let you know whether the mere act of owning this bag makes me less likely to forget it when I go to the market!

Came across this table made out of a shipping carton the other day. It was featured in a book about green design (coolhuntinggreen.com) and it made my smile for two reasons.
First, how many of us did this anyway as a student? (Or, even more recently when moving?) Did you think of yourself as ‘eco trend-setters’? Probably not.
Second, it made me wonder what our Blue BoxesTM have turned into over the years!
For those of you who aren’t 4imprint customers, Blue BoxesTM are boxes of free samples we send out to our customers to keep them up to date on promotional products available. They are sent out in corrugated cardboard boxes that are, well, blue.
We’ve been sending out these boxes for several years now, so I’m willing to bet they’ve found their way into a few kids’ science projects, are storing nuts and bolts in a few garages across the country and maybe even storing promotional pens for reference?
I’m sure you’ve found a bunch of different ways to re-use your Blue BoxesTM before recycling them. So, do tell. And, if you have pictures, I’d love to see them!
