Up-cycled bags for eco-crusaders
When Patio Screendoor (not the name his mama gave him) forgot to bring his reusable grocery bags to the market, he figured he’d simply pick one up along with his groceries. The store’s options—either too expensive or cheaply made—weren’t thrilling. “I had already replaced a few flimsy bags at this point and was determined not to own another crappy bag,” says Screendoor.

Because of the battery and gnarly chemicals used in cell phone components, you can’t just chuck this stuff into the landfill. But your old cellphone and accessories can make life better for Haitians struggling after the earthquake.
