ReFashion Week celebrates secondhand and sustainable fashion in New York City. One participating organization is taking discarded plastic and up-cycling them to crate fashion-forward tote bags. See the feature on FOX 5 NY:

On March 1, New York State enacted the plastic bag ban. FOX 5 NY went behind the scenes with Jessica Tomaz, RTS Sustainability, and aNYbag.

RTS is offering a plastic bag pick-up service to deliver clients’ old plastic bags to aNYbag to be up-cycled into reusable ones. Learn about the details of the legislation here.
