FROM THE PUBLISHER
Over the last year, I’ve found myself complaining about the younger generation. I know … I know … everyone has a thing or two to say about those little whippersnappers.

With this month being our clean, green issue I wanted to share with you an easy-to-do craft that can help you be more “green.” Thanks to this craft you can say goodbye to plastic bags and enjoy these reusable ones instead. You can use the bags every day and do away with hundreds of dollars in plastic bags.
