Have you ever noticed the banners the Forest Preserve District places at preserves and along roadways to tell you about special events?
Have you ever wondered what happens to them once the event is over?
They're not just thrown away - they're recycled into banner bags and banner bowls, which are now available for you to own!
Choose from a bicycle bag, a pet water bowl, a sport wallet, or a sunglasses case made from a banner from your favorite Forest Preserve event. Each bag or bowl is one-of-a-kind and demonstrates your commitment to an environmental ethic and fashionable fun that won't break the bank!
The bicycle bag is $15, the pet water bowl is $10, and the sport wallet or sunglasses case is $7. Pick out your favorites at the Forest Preserve's Plum Creek Nature Center
They make great gifts for your eco-friends too!Photographs Courtesy of Morgan Drdak
