Earth Day The Crochet Way

in: Crochet

So where were you on that first “April 22nd Earth Day” back in 1970?

I was in Delhi NY getting the first of a series of Associate degrees – Sure wish I still had pictures of my friend Glenn’s VW bug and how we “decorated” it for the 1970 occasion.

What could be better this Earth Day than to combine recycling and crochet

That is why I knew I had to save this site to tell you about for this 37th anniversary of the April 22nd Earth day.

Not only does Cindy of MyRecycledBags.com tell you how to make yarn out of grocery bags and sacks but she offers free patterns for several.

Here are just two of the bags I found at Cindy’s Site – you can choose to crochet with recycled jeans or crochet with grocery bags or whatever else you want to reuse in honor of Earth Day.


Now for the time to make them all (there is plenty of stuff around here to recycle) I think I will crochet with denim first.

Happy 37th April 22nd Earth Day
