DIY Recycling & Fashion: ThreadBanger

Video Demo: Recycling/Repurposing Plastic Bags & Making Shopping Tote Bags from Old Clothes

Compiled by Vicki McClure Davidson

 

ThreadBanger's Rob and Corinne show a number of innovative ways to reuse plastic bags to keep them out of landfills. Also, a sewing demonstration is included with designer Rebekah Potter, who shows how easy it is to make a functional, attractive shopping tote bag from old clothes. Reuse and recycle rules!

 

To view ThreadBanger's embedded YouTube video without its Google ads at the bottom, click the button with the X in the lower right corner (it appears shortly after the video starts to play). However, please view the ads at least once all the way through so that the sponsors are happy and ThreadBanger earns a tiny bit of revenue. Since you'll likely watch this how-to video a couple of times, watching it at least once with the displayed ads, and clicking any of them that are intriguing to you, should be no hardship.
