Successful Fundraising Tips: Get Ready For Fall!

Follow our advice and your fundraiser is in the bag!

First, it’s always a good idea to set a fundraising goal. This should be reasonable and within reach, but challenging as well! Determining the number of products each individual should sell is also a great way to motivate students, because each person has their own personal goal.

Next, make a list of people that the student body could sell to! Sometimes it’s hard for students to think of people beyond their parents, but there are endless possibilities – neighbors, coaches, friends, dentists – you name it! With a list of possibilities, no one will ever run out of ideas for who to call next.

Go Green with Reusable Bags!

Reusable Bags from Mixed Bag DesignsNowadays, “going green” is not just a fashion statement; It’s becoming a necessity to reduce our carbon footprint, and to start being more conscientious about using up our world’s non-renewable resources! While recycling is always a great way to go green, very few traditional plastic grocery bags are actually recyclable. Most plastic bags end up in harmful situations—sea animals mistakenly try to eat them, or they end up buried in landfills where they will never biodegrade. In addition, plastics leach harmful chemicals such as bisphenol A or phthalate, and take a large amount of petroleum to produce. Instead of using up plastic bags that can harm the environment, or paper bags made from the world’s precious trees, buy a few reusable, sustainable reusable bags from Mixed Bag Designs!

A growing number of countries around the world have outlawed plastic bags due to their harmful effects on the environment. This interactive map shows all locations that ban plastic bags or impose a fee for using them. In some places, plastic grocery bags are illegal, and paper bags are only given out for a fee. At 10 cents a bag, the fees can really add up after a year or more of grocery shopping! Reusable bags are not only better for the environment, but an affordable way to beat the paper bag fees that are in effect in many different places. In fact, some grocery store will even give you a discount for using a reusable bag! Buying Mixed Bag Designs reusable bags will last much longer than just a year, and with all of our fun patterns and prints, who wouldn’t want to shop in style? Over your lifetime, if you start to B.Y.O.B. (Bring Your Own Bag), it will save over 22,000 plastic bags from entering landfills and polluting the world.

Make an impact on the environment this fall by purchasing reusable bags from Mixed Bag Designs! Reducing your carbon footprint is the first step towards a better, healthier, sustainable world. Your Earth will thank you!
