Calypso Studios, an eco-fashion company based in Richmond, Virginia, recently launched their new line of eco-friendly S.H.O.P Totes. With over 500 billion plastic bags used annually, the unique S.H.O.P. (Start Helping Our Planet) Totes are designed to make a difference bag by bag.
Calypso Studios has vowed to donate over $10,000 worth of their S.H.O.P Totes on the 39th Annual Earth Day. You can register on their website to win an Acts of Kindness S.H.O.P. Tote.

The drawing ends April 22nd, 2009 and the eco-friendly winners will receive their bag after Earth Day to accessorize their wardrobe and to support Calypso’s mission of re-using shopping bags.
With the collaboration of several American artists, Lori Siebert, Emma Hand, Robin Roderick, Tina Higgins, and Andrea Tachiera, Calypso Studios was able to launch their artistic collection to the world in January 2009. The Start Helping Our Planet Tote not only eliminates the amount of plastic that our planet consumes, but is easy to carry, giving modern consumers a sustainable alternative to plastic bags. The totes easily roll up into a 2” X 3” size, and three of the bags fit into one convenient wristlet carrying case.
“In our ever growing eco-friendly world, we are proud to announce our Start Helping Our Planet Totes,” says co-founder of Calypso Studios, Kathy Lawrence. “They are convenient, fashionable and can travel with consumers everywhere they go.”
Calypso Studios is proud to do its part in the ecological reconstruction of our planet. Their Earth Day mission is to create a sense of knowing what that one plastic bag does to our planet. Each plastic bag is made out of the non-renewable energy source of oil, which takes decades to break down after it has been thrown away. Not only does it take decades to break down, it can create immediate consequences like clogging roadside drains and increasing flooding, and polluting our oceans and killing sea life.
