California Banned Plastic Bags – Time to Bring Your Mixed Bags!


California made history November 8, 2016 by becoming the first state to officially ban single-use plastic bags. By removing plastic bags from the equation, it will help reduce litter, cleanup costs and save our natural resources. 25 million plastic bags are polluted in California every day. Make it a habit and B.Y.M.B. – that is, Bring Your Mixed Bag – every time you go out. The benefits are in the bag and you don’t have to live in California to start!


Remembering to bring your own reusable bag will definitely take some time getting use to. For now, here are a few easy tips you can do to help you remember:

– Keep one in your purse or backpack at all times

– Hang a few on the coat rack, front closet or by the front door

– Keep bags in the front seat or trunk of your car

– Stash a few bags in your office

Avoid the 10 cent charge by bringing a mixed bag with you to the grocery store, errands and everywhere in between. We have a variety of patterns and sizes to choose from so you can shop in style and save the planet all at the same time. Perfect for the on-the-go, eco-friendly shopper.

With the holidays around the corner, ’tis the season to go green. Our foldable grocery bags make great stocking stuffers. Start shopping our collection of reusable bags today and don’t forget to reduce, reuse and re-cute!

5 Raising Money Ideas for Spring Fundraisers

Raising Money Tips

How do you differentiate your worthy cause, with so many events and fundraisers out there? You may have difficulty meeting your goals for funds. If you are in need of raising money ideas for your school or organization, you are not alone. Here are 5 tips from Mixed Bag Designs to greatly increase your chances for success:

  1. Stop Asking for Money

It is not easy asking others to dig into their pockets and make donations. In fact, you may feel a bit uneasy about this and it may seem too much like begging. This is why you should consider selling products which people can use. It is so much easier to utilize catalogs of handy products that consumers can use around the home. When donors receive something of value in return for a donation, they are more likely to make a purchase. With fundraising products, your raising money ideas are solved!

  1. Pick a Special Day or Holiday

Are you looking for a particular theme for your event or promotion? Consider Valentine’s Day, Easter or St. Patrick’s Day. In fact, St. Patrick’s Day is the perfect theme when you plan to sell eco-friendly (also known as “green”) products. You can offer a wide range of eco-friendly fundraising products like reusable bags and storage bins made of partially-recycled plastic. No matter what color they are, they all fit into the St. Patrick’s Day theme.
