Making Reusable Bags at The Sharing Tree!

  • March 30, 2017
  • 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
  • The Sharing Tree, 218 E 3rd Ave, between Monroe Street and Thomasville Road

Come and join us to make reusable shopping bags!

No sewing experience necessary!

Help our Sustainable Tallahassee Rags 2 Bags Team save our world - one bag at a time!

We invite you to join us for good company and the chance to become part of the fun and funky reusable bag movement. 

If you're a novice, we'll teach you how to sew a basic fabric bag with braided handles (the hallmark of these bags). 

If you're an experienced sewer you can jump right into bag production.

The bags are made from donated fabric, and the completed bags are given away to encourage recipients to give up singe-use plastic bags.  Why?

To reduce the use of fossil fuel!
To reduce plastic bag injuries for marine life!
To keep trash out of our environment!

When? Every Thursday afternoon, from 1 pm to 4 pm (except holidays). Just show up on any or all of these afternoons!

For questions, Peggy Stanford, Sustainable Tallahassee board member and chair of our Rags 2 Bags Team:  peggysanford1981@gmail.com.

Thank you to Carly Sinnadurai, Executive Director of The Sharing Tree for supporting this effort by making space available to our Rags 2 Bags Team and sewing guests.
