Actress Jennie Garth designs green bag
LOS ANGELES Actress Jennie Garth has teamed with the makers of Green Works natural cleaners to design an environmentally friendly cotton tote bag, complete with her signature.
“The Green Bag by Jennie Garth” is made from 100% recycled cotton and is reusable. The designer bag is available for sale online at www.greenworkscleaners.com for $10. For every bag sold, Green Works will donate $3.65 to the Sierra Club. The remaining amount of $6.35 covers the cost of the bag.
“Like many moms, I’m on a journey to living a more natural lifestyle without sacrificing quality and convenience,” said Garth. “Working with the Green Works team to design this bag is another opportunity to share the message about natural cleaning, while supporting a deserving organization like the Sierra Club.”
