Nordstrom goes Greener

Nordstrom department store, my supplier of fabulous shoes and hassle free beauty counters, has decided it too would like to leave a stiletto size footprint on the environment. After the current supply runs out, all Nordstrom shopping bags and gift boxes will be 100% recyclable. The gift boxes will even be produced from recycled materials! Additionally, Nordstrom will be selling silver reusable shopping bags decorated with iconic US landmarks by Ruben Toledo for $22. Personally, I would have been a bit more excited if they had chosen to commission Toledo to design fashion illustrations for the bags, perhaps some of his fabulous shoes or striking ladies...hopefully next time!
