You know those net produce bags from the grocery store? The ones that house tomatoes, onions, avocados and such? The ones you usually throw away? Well, Ellen has a super use for them, one that I think is just so clever!
She takes those throw-away bags and repurposes them into wonderful market bags to tote your groceries home! And the way she does it is what caught my eye -- she crochets a top for the bag and adds a drawstring to cinch it up! Very simple, very clever.
Here's how they begin in life, a humble little nylon net bag holding your fruits and veggies! I just love the way Ellen extends their life and keeps them away from the yucky landfill.
Her Etsy shop has other lovely creations.....
American Girl Doll clothing
A wonderful memory quilt design that is created just for you with your photos
And she's now offering pick-your-own-color sets of knitted dishcloths and crocheted scrubbies! Super idea!
As Ellen says in her profile and shop announcement, "Earthwise Emporium is about recycling, reusuing and providing products to replace disposable ones. I believe we are all to care for our natural resources and our own personal resources through being frugal..."
I hope you will visit Ellen's shop and show her some love! You can also find her on Facebook!
