Meet the "Green Bag Lady"
Teresa VanHatten-Granath, fondly known as the Green Bag Lady and her international team of volunteer "Bagettes", have been changing the world one bag at a time, since 2008.
The Green Bag Lady is an eco-friendly art project, collecting donated fabric and making reusable bags to give away for FREE in exchange for the promise to refuse paper + plastic when shopping.
Starting off with only a single sewing machine and a handful of bags given away to family and friends, to date, the Green Bag Lady has donated over 57,000 bags all over the world.

Asked about her experience with Starlight Labels, Teresa says:
Our experience with Starlight Labels has been amazing. Lottie is so easy to work with and has helped us customize the labels to fit our needs. They are perfect for our bags!
