How many plastic bags do you have in your home right now? How many plastic bags do you use a day? What about a year? Do you know that almost 1 million plastic bags are used per minute in the world? All this plastic in the environment can cause serious problems after some time. Therefore, to help you (and the world)we decided show you how to make a 10 minutes cloth bag using only your fingers and a pair of scissors!
Since its mass production started in the 40´s, plastic has been doing an essential status in society. Last year, more than 300 million tons were produced worldwide and we should ask ourselves the damage this is causing to the natural environment and to our lives. Plastic bags are a serious threat since they take up to 1000 years to break down in the environment. But don´t panic! Luckily, there are many alternatives to combat this massiveplastic pollution and one of them is this strong and simple cloth bag that will help you during your shopping time. All you will need is an old t-shirt and a pair of scissors.
Step 1: Lay the t-shirt out in a flat surface and cut the sleeves off (we won´t need them).
Step 2: Cute neck out of the t-shirt (you can use something round to help you or just eyeballed).
Step 3: Cute slits at the bottom of the t-shirt (long enough to tie the them twice). Keep the slits lined up and tie the front and back pieces together in double knots. If you don´t want the knots appearing, tie the slits in the inside part.
Done! Your eco-friendly bag is ready to be used! Enjoy it!
