1939 - Kansas wheat, clothes for children so flowered print bags, washout labels

This photo from LIFE Magazine, 1939, shows Kansas wheat, of the Sunbonnet Blue Flour label.  Mothers sewed the flour bags into clothes for their children, so the bags were made in colourful prints with washout labels.  If only more companies today would make reusable packaging!  It may have just been the first commercial example of upcycling.
