The second thing about our family, as if you didn't already know, we love DIY!! Recycled projects are our favorite, but we are all over anything that gets our creative juices running.
The third thing about our household; we dislike plastic. We do recycle as much as we can, although there are questions raised about the cost, in terms of money and to the environment, in recycling plastic. We reuse a lot of plastic in our DIY projects; fusing plastic together to make something new is one example. Plus we have eliminated plastic by switching to canvas bags and reusable (check it out here) fruit and veggie bags.
However, there has been one piece of plastic we just could not get around.
The Trash Bag.
This ends today!!
Here is what you need.
We have read, and have watched people line their trash bins with newspaper, placing newspaper on the bottom and pressed on the sides of their trash bins. Our project is different. We are going to make a newspaper trash bag. It is super easy. Just basic origami, only on a little larger scale. (you don't need to be perfect at it, this project is very forgiving.)
Gather up 12 full sheets of newspaper. (not the single pages)
