Bag of bags

I love the concept of recycling gone hip. I'm not referring to restyling a Good Will find either. With all of the options available in the market these days, it's very easy to fill an eco-friendly closet with recycled sweaters (cut and repieced), sustainable apparel (bamboo is the fastest growing vegetation on earth), and organic clothing that doesn't harm the earth (it takes one-third of a pound of chemicals to grow enough cotton for just one T-shirt).

While searching for the perfect summer pool tote, I unearthed this particularly clever find which should be very easy for my DIY friends to whip up. This very chic little bag is hand crocheted out of those pesky plastic grocery bags that we all have floating around. The end result is a easily storable waterproof tote that's cool enough to go anywhere.
Thanks to Marlo for her creative recycling.
