Recycle some fabric [& plastic bags] and Help save the planet.

Let’s do something positive to reduce the hideous number of plastic bags being used - 1 million are consumed per minute globally - of which hundreds of thousands end up in the oceans.

The idea is to get together with people in your local community and make reusable cloth bags (from old duvet covers, curtains from charity shops etc) and hand them out to the unsuspecting public for free on specified dates outside different supermarkets.

Meet new people, do something marvellous for the planet and beat other pods (groups) of baggers with your morsbag tally.
Go to www.morsbags.com to be a part of a wonderful thing!
P.S. non-commercial/ non-profitable - just full of beneficial things for everyone, especially whales!

I'm actually going to make mine out of fused plastic bags hence reducing  used plastic bags from reaching the landfills/oceans in the first place.

There's link on a tutorial for fusing plastic bags

This link has great other ideas for crafting with fused plastic bags

  1. Plastic recycling is the process of recovering scrap or waste plastic and reprocessing the material into useful products..there is one fact about this is that When one ton of plastic bags is reused or recycled, the energy equivalent of 11 barrels of oil is saved.
