On Saturday August 20th be sure to drop by the Sooke Country Market where, among the bountiful local farm produce and the artisan wares, Zero Waste Sooke—sewing machines in tow—will be demonstrating how to make re-usable bags for produce and bulk food items.
The bags will be made out of up-cycled sheer curtains and T-shirts, and are an excellent way of reducing the use of plastic bags.
How Zero Waste is that?
There will be a handout (printed on recycled paper), detailing instructions for making your own bags (they make great gift bags as well); or, you can walk away with a bag being produced on the spot.
Zero Waste Sooke meets on the third Wednesday of every month at the Sooke Library at 6:30. All are welcome.
