Shoutout to all the volunteers who donated their time and skills to making these bags that will be donated to the Riverside Arts Market for The Girls Gone Green/RAM bag share program. We couldn’t make this happen without YOU! The bag share program encourages consumers to use reusable bags over plastic.
If you would like your own grain bag bag, it's time to get crafty! Ask your local brewery if they have any grain bags they'd be willing to donate to you for your project. (another tip: we also like to use discarded grain bags for cleanups in place of trash bags) You could even use a pet food bag. There are tons of instructions online! Here's the one we ended up using: www.communitychickens.com/diy-chicken-feed-sack-tote
Make a bag for yourself or a friend, or if you'd like to donate your handmade bags to the Riverside Arts Market, we'd be thrilled to have them! Just drop them (or any unwanted reusable bag – new or used) in one of the bag share bins any Saturday during market hours (10 a.m.-3 p.m.) or consider donating them to your local farmers market.
We will keep you posted on our next sewing night. We are always looking for volunteers. You don't need to know how to sew; we are looking for bag preppers and awesome people to hang out with, too! Don't worry, we'll put you to work!
Together we can and will make a difference! 💚🛍🛍🤗
