Lead bags?

December 31, 2010

How can it possibly matter that Lululemon bags have a bit of lead in them?  You have to ingest or inhale lead for it to have any harmful effects.

 

Apparently they are concerned about how the bags will be disposed of by consumers.  Seriously?

 

People are going to panic — “Oh no!  Lead!  It will hurt the children!!” — but the bags need to be disposed of by someone.  How is Lululemon going to dispose of the bags?  I’ll bet that they all end up in the dump.

 

I’m keeping mine.  Unless the bag is starting to fall apart from overuse, in which case I’ll return it to get a new one.

    Just a shot in the dark, but lululemon is the clothing of choice for the majority of yoga enthusiasts, who also happen to be very concerned about the environment as well as the plight of animals in factory farms? If that’s the case, then I would assume that’s why they are concerned.

    of course, I could be stereotyping too. I know very few women that don’t have some lulu somewhere in their wardrobe.

    I know but it’s just another example of over-reacting to what is essentially nothing. A shopping bag with a bit of lead in it? It’s safer to just keep using the bag than to dispose of it.

    The easiest way to take the risk associated with the bags to zero is to not let children chew on the bag. Problem solved.

    You’re most certainly entitled to your whorizontal belief; however, if I alone cannot audit the Fed in this Great Depression, I certainly CAN reflect on where our angst leads U.S. Lets get past alla the hypocritical BS of religion we arrogant mortals think and focus on how infinitely teeny-tiny our existence is. 88ish meeesly years VS. the length and breadth of eternity?? C’mon, pal. Whether you wanna believe-me-or-not, is certainly up to one person, you; however, you alone outta the billions of human beings have a precious, indelible soul. I personally don’t wanna lose you. See ya soon. God bless.
