It’s My Bag
Tonia is a professional nurse with a passion for green product design. She is the founder & CEO of a recyclable garment bag company called It’s My Bag. Her business concept is environmentally sound, but she was finding stiff resistance from dry cleaners who use throw away plastic bags. Tonia attended caregivers and women seeking a unique holiday season gift. Through her coaching, she also redesigned her website and marketing slogan. The USHCC also included her garment bag as a gift to all GBB participants around the country.
The positive result was 1,500 garment bags sold during the 2011 Holiday Season! To learn more about It’s My Bag or to place an order, please visit https://itsmyb.com/Home.php
