Bigs, Littles, and lots of Reusable Bags!

When you combine Turnip Green Creative Reuse's space and materials with lots of eager, crafty girls - you've got quite the equation for awesome creations!

Last Tuesday we had a blast teaching Big Brothers Big Sisters (in this case only sisters) of Middle Tennessee about how plastic bags and old clothes can be hard on the environment. The girls learned how reusable bags can be best for the elimination of plastic ones, and how easy it is to "upcycle" old t-shirts. With that knowledge, the girls set to work to make crazy-designed, practical reusable bags out of old t-shirts. Everyone had an awesome time, and will definitely think twice before taking that next plastic bag at the grocery store!
