It’s another business expansion story.  Sara Bella Upcycled just moved from the Old Mill District to a larger, ground floor space at Northwest Crossing. Business owner Sara Wiener explains that she keeps plastic bags from going to the landfill by making bags, belts, wallets, aprons and more. She explains part of her inspiration.  “I realized the number of plastic bags that we were consuming in our society and here in Bend; just watching the number I was accumulating in my own life was dramatic; just from getting the newspaper everyday." She says in Mexico, plastic bags are so prevalent some locals call it the "national flower" and in parts of Bali people can’t swim at the beach because the plastic bags get tangled in your legs. Tune in Tuesday for “Take Five” on 1110 KBND- we'll have more on her inspirational story.
