I love it when crafters take things in their own hands to make stuff for a good cause. Take Susan of joybucket who is making these reusable grocery bags out of old rice bags.
The idea is to take empty 50lb rice bags that restaurants use and sew them into reusable grocery bags. 100% of the money earned from each bag is going directly to Phnom Penh Orphan Home in Cambodia through an organization called Asia’s Hope. It looks like our local Chipotle restaurants are on board to save bags for us. Each restaurant averages 20 bags a week that would just become trash. I think the only problem we are going to face is how to keep stocked in bags.
