Idea #1 for Living Sustainably

Fabric bags, not plastic, please...

Wanna help the planet? Then don't ever, ever, ever use another new plastic bag again. If you're going to use plastic bags, then just reuse them, over and over again. Take the ones you haven't recycled back to the grocery store and just use those instead of getting new ones.
Or, if you want something a bit more stylish then just take a look around your local food store. Many grocery stores now carry their own tote grocery bags, usually made of canvas, but some have gotten more creative for a higher price. But, personally, my preference, and upcoming project, is to make more fashionable ones out of fabrics that are already lying around the house. For instance, that old t-shirt that you never wear anymore? This could be an awesome grocery bag! And it's really not that difficult to do. Here is just one set of instructions for a shirt-to-grocery bag transformation. Oh, and speaking of grocery: you don't have just use these bags for groceries and food, but also anything else that you buy! Go ahead, start the no-plastics revolution!~Am~
