Sew 25 planet-saving projects to help reduce waste

It's never been more important to be mindful of what we consume. This book will help you to make 25 small but meaningful life swaps to help reduce waste. For example, trade in your disposable face wipes and replace them with washable pads; make beeswax fabric wraps and elasticated covers so that you never have to buy single-use plastic food wrap again; make a sturdy shopping tote to replace single-use plastic versions.


Packed with all the easy-to-follow instructions and friendly sewing tips you expect from Debbie Shore, this book also contains hints and tips for face scrubs, bath salts and more to use with your new projects, or to make a perfect eco-friendly gift.

BOOKLIST - July 1, 2021

Eco-friendly products can carry quite a price tag, but with encouraging words and easy-to-followinstructions, Shore's collection of simple sewing and crafting projects can inspire readers tocreate their own and reduce, reuse, and recycle, all at the same time. Items here can be used forfood (wax wraps, lunch bags, grocery totes), personal care (makeup remover pads, reusablewipes and a way to carry them, face coverings), and other household purposes (gift wrappings,cleaning wipes). Many projects are suitable for absolute beginners, but some, like structuredbags with bias trim, are better to build up to. Throughout, Shore emphasises using organic,repurposed, and eco-friendly supplies, and reminds readers that using what they have is justfine, and better than buying new. Only one project requires a printed pattern, and the shape forthis is included in the book for easy tracing onto paper. An approachable guide. - Heather Booth
