Bags of sustainability

different angle peachesDoes your daily use of plastic drive you crazy?

Being a citizen of Laos for 6 months was my environment wake-up call. The limited services and resources available at peoples’ disposal there makes it very difficult to have an environmental friendly lifestyle.

I believe small steps towards achieving a more sustainable lifestyle is the way to go. The subtle changes you make will eventually become a habit.

So, I threw myself into a little project: home-made reusable fruit and veggie bags. I had reusable bags for general groceries, why not go one step further?! Scrap fabric to the rescue.

Youtube tutorials were on repeat, the SINGER was on overdrive and the frustration was flowing. Let’s be real, I am no seamstress.

Looking back, I see how relatively easy this project was. Proof of this: I went on to make some for a friend!

What are small steps you are taking to reach a more sustainable lifestyle?
