Just recently, my siblings and I have joined the anti-plastic movement. We resolved to avoid using anything made out of plastic, especially single-use ones. Our first step was to use metal straws. Later on, we started bringing our own tumblers for drinks. Eventually, we started bringing eco-bags when we’re doing our groceries.

It's easy to store! Just fold and put this inside your every day bag and you're good to go.

However, we have realized that our eco-bags weren’t very durable. Additionally, they weren’t fancy enough to be taken out when we’re shopping at malls and boutiques. It was then that we figured out we needed a Plan B. We’re making our own shopping bags.

Good thing we found this DIY project for a foldable shopping bag. It’s not only cute, it’s also durable. Because it’s foldable, we can easily put it inside our everyday bags so it’s there whenever we need it. I must say, this is one of the most practical DIYs ever!
