yet another way to recycle old tees

recycled t-shirt tote bags.JPG

Did You Know…. Plastic shopping bags are
typically used less than 30 minutes and only 1 % are recycled. The
average American adult uses approximately 288 bags a year, or 22,000*
in an average lifetime…

Recycle your shirts into tote bags to replace the ones you get from the store using a t-shirt, some pins, and your sewing machine.

    Great craft activity to do with a group of kids! Plan to try it with last year’s Hospice Fun Run t shirts and then let the kids use them for pool bags!

    I love this! I have a bunch of old t-shirts that would be excellent contenders for this and I can’t part with them otherwise :) Thanks for sharing!
