IKEA Goes Blue Bag Loco

As part of its Random Acts of Life Improvement plan, IKEA is giving out gazillions (ok, 35,000!) of its ubiquitous blue bags today in cities all across the country. It's happening just in time for folks to have it handy to tote around summertime goodies for Memorial Day weekend and beyond, such as picnic and beach outing necessities.

Or, if you are as creative as Adriana (shown above, via IkeaHackers), you could create a new item for your summer wardrobe!

The giveaways are not happening at stores, but in well populated public spaces in major cities. Details will be pushed out on Twitter - here are the twitter accounts to find out where and when, near you:
