CHICAGO IL (RPRN) 04/03/09-“I Count for My Earth”, is Lynn Hasselbergerâ€™s mantra, the environmental advocate behind myEARTH360.com and icountformyEARTH.com, one feisty and passionate mom fighting for our earth, one family at a time through her advocacy programs, including her newest earth-friendly endeavor: Earth Day in Hollywood ’09 Gift Bags by Distinctive Assets.

From the eco.practical to the eco.chic, many are made from recycled material. All help to care for the earth. The gift bags are perfect for celebrating Earth Day – April 22, 2009, all year long. Even the gift bags made from fibers extracted from the leaf sheath of the Abaca plant (a member of the banana plant family), are biodegradable and reusableâ€¦ the gift that keeps on giving.
“It’s not just about the products in the bag, it’s about helping to spread the word about reducing our footprint on the earth… one step at a time.” Lynn Hasselberger
