Ways to Create Your Own Reusable Bags in Chicago

Reusable bags for your Chicago Apartment

Going green in Chicago at your Mondial apartment can not only help the environment, it can also make your lifestyle a more healthy and affordable one.  One way to begin going green in Chicago is to make your own reusable bags.  This way you won’t be wasting paper or plastic bags when you shop at the grocery store.

  • Towels – You can fashion a bag out of a towel by folding it in half and then sewing up the sides.  Merely cut a pair of holes into the sides to act as handles and you have yourself a reusable bag.
  • Pillow Cases – A pillowcase is pretty much already a bag.  All you need are a pair of handles.  You can either cut two holes in the sides or sew your own handle on yourself.
  • Tank Top – Turn any old t-shirts or tank tops that you no longer wear into reusable bags. Just sew the bottom of the shirt up and it becomes a bag!   For T-shirts, just cut off the sleeves in order to make the handles.
