Green Grocery Bag Challenge

Have you heard about Sew, Mama, Sew's Green Grocery Bag Challenge?  The idea is to make some pretty bags, use them to wrap your holiday gifts, and they become a bonus gift!  The recipient can use them as grocery bags, totes, gym bags, whatever!  More and more stores are giving discounts for or even mandating using reusable bags.  American consumers generate 4 million tons of wrapping paper and shopping bag waste during the holiday season alone, and we go through 100 billion single-use plastic grocery bags every year.  You can make a difference!

You can join in on Facebook or on their blog.  There will be free bag patterns, tutorials, videos and more.  What a great way to use up some stash fabric and help the Earth!
