How do you combine fashion, practicality, and sustainability into one product? If you're Kendra Stanley, you recycle old rain jackets into grocery bags, giving birth to the 'City Bag Trade'.
Welcome to the next evolution in social responsibility through environmentally safe and friendly alternatives to plastic.
There are a variety of sustainable and alternative options to utilizing familiar fabrics, and Ms. Stanley spent a considerable amount of time researching many of them before deciding on using rain jackets.
Her intentions are to increase awareness around the use and waste of common, plastic grocery store bags, and to hopefully change our old bag habits by bringing her product to market, providing a more intelligent way to shop.
