Once a T-Shirt, Now a Bag

August 8, 2018

Local farmers and University of Minnesota campus organizations gather Wednesdays from 11am-2pm for a farmers market at McNamara Alumni Center.

At this local farmers market, the Office of Sustainability has a tent where the make recycled t-shirts into reusable bags. This here is a double win with repurposing an old shirt and giving shoppers reusable bags for their items.

T-shirts are donated by Arc’s Value Village and the campus’s ReUse Program. More details here on using t-shirts for bags!
