Paper or Plastic, No Thank You - RECYCLE


It's not so hard being green... a little at a time. I made myself a good half dozen of these recycled t-shirt bags...tossed them in the trunk of my car and one in my purse and surprised myself at how much easier and GOOD it felt to cut down on my plastic bag intake.

Did you know it takes as much petroleum to make 14 plastic bags as it does to drive a car one mile? I didn't know that either...plus, did you know there are different grades of plastic bags, some recycle and some do not in landfills?

That's enough information for me to make a small difference and use these urban style repurposed bags. I keep a current list of bags available that I've found and recycled for sale on Etsy. Come take a look-see and drop me a note to see the list.
