As-salaamu'alaykum wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu
So you might not save the world by using non-plastic bags, but make the intention to save the world! And you might not be the one to save a turtle from choking to death, but make the intention to!
The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “The reward for deeds depends upon the intentions and every person will get the reward according to what he has intended” (Al-Bukhari).
Details of swap: Send your swap partner a beautiful tote so she can throw away all her plastic bags! You can either make the tote, or buy one (so even those that can't sew are encouraged to join) and add some 'life' to it!
The 'best' tote (voted by the participants and viewers) will receive a little gift.
Please use the 'green swap' button at the top on your blog/site (if you have one) so others can join in.
(Please post links to any bag patterns you find)
