Bags for the People

Bags for the People is a non-profit organization that provides a sustainable alternative to plastic bags. They use all recycled materials and give their bags out for FREE. They also perform workshops (with kids K-12 and elderly groups) and events (i.e. Sweatshop Socials) to not only get people to make the switch from plastic to re-usable, but to inspire people to take an active and creative role in life.

At the workshops and events they discuss why they do what they do and how making and using reusable bags is a healthy alternative to plastic. They also give people hands on experience with sewing machines and working with recycled fabric.

Pretty cool, huh?

If you'd like a free bag, please send a self addressed and stamped envelope to:
