I volunteer for the Green Bag Lady Project:
We sew reusable shopping bags from donated fabric and give them away to encourage others to minimize their use of plastic and paper bags.
Here are some bags:
This is my fellow Baggette Tami ironing some bags ready for the handles to be attached:
Here's a GBL blog post about the Colorado chapter of GBL: http://greenbaglady.blogspot.com/2014/05/my-colorado-bagettes.html
And some Colorado bags in action: http://greenbaglady.blogspot.com/2014/09/colorado-bags-and-bagettes-in-action.html
I began sewing for the project in October 2013 and during that year contributed to finishing 137 bags!
During 2014 I lost count but know that there are at least 790+ bags that I contributed to making with the other Colorado baggettes. So yes one person can make a diffrence but a small team can make a HUGE difference!
So if you have any fabric to donate please contact the Green Bag Lady Teresa: greenbagladyinfo(at)gmail(dot)com
