Fed up with plastic carrier bags?
Why not get together with some friends and make some 'morsbags'?
The idea is to create a 'pod' of people, or join an existing one, who all sew these simple shopping bags and, when they have enough, distribute them free to shoppers in the hope that fewer will use plastic.
Ideally they should be made from recycled fabric - old duvet covers, sheets, curtains, fabric from charity shops, etc.
I won't be organising a pod because I can never really make arrangements in advance for things. I just never know what my energy will be like on any given day. I would like to make a few myself to give to friends and family though, so I shall be saving any suitable fabric I find. Apparently they only take about half an hour to make.
Now, if only I could figure out how to use the darned sewing machine...
