High school student turns plastic food bags into totes | News
We got a call into the newsroom from an adviser at Freeman High School. Jennifer Fees was telling us all about one her students, Lexi Saeger, who is getting crafty to fund her way to the upcoming National Leadership Conference in Florida.
Instead of throwing away those plastic bags containing food for dogs, cats, chickens and more, when they’re empty, Saeger is sewing them into tote bags. She’s creating these products to fund her trip and compete with her creations. She already placed 1st at the state FCCLA competition.
Her totes will be for sale Saturday, April 14th at the Spokane Valley Albertsons, located at 32nd and Highway 27. She’ll be out there at 11 a.m. selling her totes.
