Awards to OCWC & Members

What better way to recycle than to turn reusable bags into an outfit? OCWC swept the field in this category with an entry that will be entered into the competition at the National Convention. 

Not only is the "jumper" made from reusable bags, so are the hat, jacket, blouse, leggings, shoes and purse. 

Thank you to our "Haute Couture" designer, Margie Nelson!
