Bags Bags and more Bags

We use and waste and buy and replace. This is something I know. I am not a “crazy environmentalist” (as one person I know would say) but I hate the thought of not taking care of the Earth God made for us just so that we can have the convenience of a disposable lifestyle. I like to believe that there is a balance somewhere between convenience and conscience.

Here in Tucson, I am working with others to form a group that is willing to take a few tiny steps to help reduce the amount of plastic bags that we use. You see them everywhere, don’t you? Stuck on tress and cactus, blowing across streets. We will be making really cool (and really simple) bags that you can take grocery shopping or to the farmers market. Dare I say, even to the mall. These will all be made out of cool fabrics so that you can take it out in public and not feel like a weirdo 🙂 The details are all still being formed and I will post more here when I know more!!!!

Want to form your own group? Check out Morsbags or contact me and I’ll tell you how!!!!

    this is such a great idea. truly! i am so inspired. yes, i hate plastic bags…i will be on the lookout for your cool ‘mama goes to market’ bags…i have been wanting to get one…especially for the ‘farmers markets’…one with cool side ‘bag’ attached to the bigger bag, to hold my cash, lipbalm, baby wipes, purell, coins and cell phone.

    i need to dust my sewing machine off and get busy…ty ty for the inspiration today!

    I have a ton of patterns for knitting and crocheting bags that I cannot wait to sink my needles into. Just gotta finish the baby blankets for my cousins first. Glad to hear from you lately! We miss you coming around the park.

    Great idea! I really dilike all of those plastic bags. I’ve been trying to think of ways to use them. Stuffing for bean bags?

    Really good idea. I keep a bag in my truck that Visa (the credit card company) gave me at a trade show about 7 or 8 years ago. I looked at the Morsbags .doc instructions but they were too technical for me. I will have to watch the animation!
