Remember those editorial business letters that my students wrote, suggesting "green" strategies to businesses? Last week, one of my students walked in with this stack of 30 reusable shopping bags and the company's written response to her letter. (She suggested that the store turn off lights when the store is closed.) The response letter thanked her for writing and stated several energy-saving measures already in place, then offered these bags for her and her classmates. The student and I were equally astonished and pleased, and she took 3 bags home and distributed the rest among her classmates.
