Easy Reusable Bags - Trash 2 Treasure

Have you entered your pledge on the Olympic Torch Relay Site?
Here's mine.-

I will make and carry reusable bags and post directions on my blog for others to make their own bags too.

If you have a simple pattern for others to follow, drop me a comment on my blog.

Let's work together to keep plastic out of the landfills and reduce chemicals released as part of their decomposition process; organo-chlorine (highly toxic), methane, and nitrous oxide (greenhouse gases contributing to global warming).

From Tank to Tote - Easy Reusable Bag

Don't toss that too small / stained tank top - turn it into a tote!

  1. Turn tank inside out.
  2. Sew shirt together at the bottom (back-stitch if you don't have a sewing machine)
  3. Turn right side out and decorate with permanent markers.

This really is a trash to treasure project. It won't take long for those nickels to add up that they're charging for bags at the grocery store.

Try this using other clothes that are headed for the scrap bin. A pair of toddler-sized coveralls could be really handy with all those extra pockets!

Homemade Beauty Treatments

Beinggirl : Your Body : Features: (from their UK site)

"Soothing Skin Clarifier (for minor acne flare-ups)

Mix 1/2 cup warm water with 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Using a cotton ball, apply directly to blemish. Hold pressure with cotton ball for several minutes, to soften blemish. Using a cotton swab, dab honey on blemish; leave on 10 minutes. Rinse and pat dry.

Nail and Cuticle Moisturizer

Olive oil can simply be massaged into the nail and cuticle area to moisturize and nourish the nail area. This is a great trick that will make those nasty hangnails a thing of the past.

Kiwi Eye Soother

Place a thin slice of kiwi on each closed eyelid to rejuvenate eyes and eliminate dark circles. Leave on for 15 minutes."

Nestlé : Starting Your Own Herb Garden

Nestlé : Starting Your Own Herb Garden: Save money by growing your own herbs in a sunny window.
"Here are a few helpful tips to get you started:
Tip 1: Make sure you have a spot in your house that receives full sunlight for at least half of the day, a south or west facing window would be best. If your growing space does not accommodate this, think about using a fluorescent lamp to supplement your herbs growing needs.
Tip 2: Choose your herbs. Make a list of the herbs you know you love and use frequently. Explore other herbs that you think you may like to have. If you’re not sure, check your supermarket shelf to give you an idea.
Tip 3: Separate your herbs based on their required growing conditions. Look at the seed packets for specific growing conditions.
Tip 4: Separate your herbs in different potting containers. These can all be added together in one decorative planter if you like. Make sure your pots provide good drainage as this is probably the most important factor for a successful herb garden. Mixing your soil with crushed stone or gravel can help improve drainage. Separating your herbs also allows you to adjust the amount of water you give each plant depending on their needs."
