Here at Curtain Clean we are big advocates of sustainability. Clean, re-use, recycle!

Help us reduce waste and have fun doing it with our little tutorial on how to turn a T-shirt into a re-usable bag.


You’ll need:
• Old t-shirt – The thicker the fabric, the sturdier the bag• Sharp scissors, preferably fabric scissors
• Washable marker (optional)

Step 1: Cut the sleeves off so it resembles a singlet.

Step 2: Cut the neckline area into a circle or oval – these will become our handles. Trace a bowl to get a perfectly round circle.

Step 3: Turn the t-shirt inside out. Determine where you want the bottom of the bag to be and trace a line across. Keep in mind that depending on the fabric used, your tote is likely stretch and become longer when it’s filled with stuff.

Step 4: Cut slits from the bottom of the shirt up to the line marking the bottom of your bag. Keep the slits small to prevent large gaps in the bottom of the bag. You’ll want to cut both the front and back layers together because they need to match up for the next step.

Step 5: Tie the front and back fringe together in knots and turn the shirt right side out. For extra embellishments, tie the straps (handles) in knots, or tie bits of t-shirt scrap to the top.

P.S. We'd love to see your creations!!

During this morning’s power cut we were able still to deliver drinking water across the Wellington region and South Wairarapa. Reservoirs were able to manage the demand, and storage is recovering in reservoirs now that treatment plants are operational.

For Featherston and Greytown residents, as the reservoir that supplies your area is taking longer to recover, we would appreciate it if you could reduce your water consumption where you can. We’ll share another update when you can use water normally again. Thank you for your patience.

Power has been restored to the region, and the majority of the pumping stations and all treatment plants are back online. We are investigating the wider network to ensure everything is operating as normal.

We continue to ask the wider Wellington region to be mindful of their water consumption, and ask South Wairarapa residents to continue to reduce their water consumption and avoid flushing their toilets. Reducing demand allows the assets to operate without added pressure when they come back online.

All of the critical assets including pumping stations and treatment plants have generators in operation as part of our resilience plan. We also have mobile generators available for other pumping stations.
