Are you a teen who’s heard of “fast-fashion” and want to know about its impacts on your life? Join Sheila and Kalthom as they shine light on the Take-Make-Dispose model of the fashion industry, then learn how to turn a T-shirt into a DIY Macramé Market bag. Fashion-forward can be environmentally-friendly! 

You’ll need 1-2 old t-shirts, a hanger and scissors to make your macramé market bag!
