With the aim of eliminating waste and reusing clothes rather than disposing of them, there is a new and sustainable grocery bag design. This new circular grocery bag not only saves up to 30% of fabric compared to traditional designs, it can also save fuel, manpower and energy which would have been used to manufacture a standard bag.
The design is very simple. A grocery bag can be quickly made out of used clothes leading to reduced textile waste.
Four easy steps to turn an old t-shirt into a grocery bag:
- Cut off the sleeves.
- Cut a 16 cm gap for the handles.
- Sew both sides.
- Sew the bottom.
