WRBL donated all of the old Westport banners for me to turn into totes for my recycled bag project. I was inspired by the ones at City Market. Now I am going to beg radio stations for theirs too. UMKC too. If you know anyone who goes through a lot of non-reusable banners - let me know and I'll see if they'll donate them.

On the recycled bag project - 8 track tapes. Good stuff. The tape has an almost velvety feel and is pretty cool. Did a small one yesterday, working on a larger one today. And Bumblefish said I could have all of the old rice bags too. They go through a lot of rice. they are paper bags, but I'm going to laminate the interesting parts and turn them into bags & a few journals. The journals will use the less interesting (blank) parts as paper on the inside.

Totes Not Trash!
