Did you know you can reduce your carbon footprint, help eliminate waste and pollution, and give yourself a chance at some great prizes in one simple step? It’s a win-win situation for you, the community and the ecosystem…and you can even win a $5000 prize package from Brighter Planet.

What do you have to do? Just fill out the pledge form at c3.newdream.org and then start using reusable bags when you go shopping. It’s that easy. Just by doing that you’ll start making a dent in the waste of the 12 million barrels of oil and the 14 million trees used to produce plastic and paper bags each year. Plus you’ll curb your carbon footprint by almost 4 pounds each month.

Visit the C3 site to sign up and then tell your friends: you could win a $5000 prize package from Brighter Planet or one of several other terrific prizes.

New American Dream has also made it easier for you to join the new BYOB, when you pledge you get a coupon for 20% off from ReusableBags.com. Worldwide, an estimated 4 billion plastic bags end up as litter each year. Tied end to end that’s enough to circle the earth 63 times. Isn’t it time to start making a difference?

  1. I did this – probably 20+ years ago – another time that this became popular – the bags are very sturdy – and the handles do not cut into your hands – they wash very easily.

  2. The second half of the story is that when I took over the plant show at the girls’ school – I went temporarily back to plastic – because I have to collect hundreds of bags to send the young plants home with all the kids in the spring. I’ll go back to MINE when I am done with the plant show – unless they stop doing plastic bags first.

  3. Thanks posting about the C3 challenge and encouraging people to say no to unnecessary plastic bags! I work for Brighter Planet, the company giving away the grand prize for the BYOB contest and I definitely believe that the small changes we make to our lifestyle really add up. Don’t know if you checked our site out (www.brighterplanet.com) but we just launched a credit card that helps build renewable energy projects each time someone spends on their card — another good way to take responsibility for the purchases we make. I’d like to give you an invite to some upcoming online events, would you mind sending me a contact e-mail so i can be in touch?

    Thanks again!
