Everyone forgets their reusable shopping bags sometimes, and then there’s the dilemma of what to do with the flimsy shopping bags they give you at the store. Do you throw them away? Recycle them? Reuse them for the kitty litter box? Or would you rather upcycle them into a beautiful, sturdy, and reusable tote or messenger bag? Help us celebrate Earth Week by bringing in your old shopping bags to NorthWoods and learning how to turn them from space-taking environmental nuisances into posh and useful accessories with an iron, some waxed paper, and sewing supplies! Your trash can become a treasured accessory!
