How To Make a Grocery or Tote Bag from an old Sail

Why make your own reusable bag?

Make your own grocery bags to reduce the additional bags that are released into the world. "I am but one person, what difference can I make?" That is the question I asked myself and you may also, but that may be short-sighted. You likely use 12-20 plastic store bags per week, go ahead do the math real quick. Think of every stop you make in your daily errands.

Be the Difference.

You likely use 12-20 plastic store bags per week, go ahead do the math real quick. Think of every stop you make in your daily errands. If you do this you can also inspire others to do it as well. We all know that plastic is not great in landfills and our oceans, however, we use them due to their convenience. There are a lot of reasons to make, carry and use your own grocery bags, above it all, you will remind others to do the same.

Check out the instructions and article on our website that goes into more detail on how to do this.

I would ask you to share this with others that may find this useful. I think this makes sense for everyone, not just boaters.

Join us on our journey as we continue to rebuild, refit and prepare our Formosa 51 Sailboat for our continued cruising journey. We have always loved the Formosa, bought one (on a bit of a whim) late in 2014, moved aboard this one right away and started to do our refit while living board. We are avid fans of Cruising Outpost and Good Ole Boat (Good Old Boat) magazines and love the ideas we get from them.
