Here at Crafty Mom Ideas, we give attention in making DIY products to help all interested mothers out there to learn how to make basic products we need in our house holds. This post is very special because it concerns our environment and how to protect it.
I'm so glad that authorities in most provinces and cities are now strictly implementing the "no plastic bags" policy in all merchants. It should have done a long time ago, maybe it did not become this worst. We all knew that plastic bags are non biodegradable, it can be very harmful to our environment. It takes 15 years or more before these plastic bags are totally decomposed.The tendency is to accumulate these wastes in our environment. It's very possible that we can create another mountain, a mountain of garbage! I'm inspired to make this article, why? Because this is another helpful DIY project. It's something we should learn to. I know some of you see things like what I do.I hate paper bags! I hate it because it's messy,it's not durable, and most of all it's not comfortable to handle.Eco-friendly bags are good but do I always have to buy it every time I buy groceries? Well, I have a simple solution here, to make DIY Eco shopping bag.This Eco shopping bag is something different. It's durable,reusable, handy and foldable. You can use new fabrics but I suggest,use recycled fabrics to make a double purpose: one is to save money and the other one is to recycle. Recycling is a very good hobby, it can do a lot to save our environment to its speedy destruction.This is why I created this DIY recycling craft blog, I am an advocate, I want to teach and encourage people to be one too.
