Bags for the People is a non-profit organization that provides the public with a sustainable alternative to plastic bags. They use all repurposed materials and give out bags for free. Bags for the People also perform community building workshops and events to convince people to make the switch from plastic to reusable and inspire the public to take an active and creative role in life. We'll have all the materials you'll need to sew a bag of your own here at the Etsy Labs! If you have any other fabric or old clothing that you would like to turn into bags, please bring them along.
Bags for the People's tagline (and mission) is Sew me. Use me. Wash me. Reuse me. Visit their site to find out more.
If you want to participate from home you will need these supplies:
- Fabric (an old T-shirt would do the trick)
- Sewing machine, or a sewing needle
- Download Bags for the People's instructions
Happy Sewing! xo
