Saving the world one bag at a time...

CAPERS Home has bags from BlueAvocado - hip, user—friendly products that help you get your shopping in—step with your ideals. It's simple: just by shopping with a re-usable pod bag, you can reduce your carbon footprint as well as unnecessary waste. The pods have a caribiner so you can attach it to your purse and not have to try to remember to take it in the store with you!

The inspiring news is that by using a BlueAvocado pod instead of plastic bags you avoid 200 plastic bags and 9.5 lbs of CO2e if you use the bag for a whole year. That's the equivalent of NOT driving 11 miles. Which is why we can say with pride, "Shop on!"

The Special: CAPERS Home has Happy Hour every weekday from 3:00 to 6:00
The Deal: BlueAvocado reusable shopping bags are 1/3 off!
Favorites: Magenta pink circles! (naturally...)
