It's Earth Day and because we at PBE care, we are sharing a super idea to recycle t-shirts. If you use your own bags at the market–and you should–this is a great way to make them and recycle something else, as well.
Here is our recipe for a great market bag:
- Take an old t-shirt and cut a half-circle out of the neck
- Cut out the sleeves
- Sew the bottom
Need a small bag? Don't forget to recycle those kid's shirts. This is almost too easy. It would be a great project for kids especially if they hate getting rid of a favorite shirt.
Make up a few and keep in the trunk of your vehicle and be part of the solution, not the problem. There are way too many plastic bags in the landfill each day.
Here are some other ideas for Earth Day. It really is easy to get involved.
