This bag is made from collected and donated upcycled plastic bags. These bags were unable to be recycled and were destined for the landfills. The plastic bags are transformed into fabric using heat and pressure.

The entire bag is fused plastic quilted onto upcycled fabric. All fabrics and straps used are upcycled, repurposed, reused or recycled. The only materials purchased new are the magnetic closures and strap ladder lock buckle.

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.
