A ban on single-use plastic bags goes into effect in Ulster County on July 15th. Hoorah! In a collaboration with the Kingston Farmers Market, we will be creating and giving out reusable produce bags made from donated and upcycled materials.
At this ZWK meetup we will be planning and preparing for that event, scheduled to happen in late July. Even if you are not a sewer or don’t consider yourself crafty, there will be a lot of opportunity for people who want to be involved to take part.
***please bring any cotton/linen material at least 10”x21” in size you wish to donate, as well as anything 56”+ in length that can be used for drawstrings (no leather or wool please), including adult size T-shirt’s we can cut up into yarn.***
Come join us! Tea and filtered water will be provided- BYO cup. Feel free to bring a zero waste snack too!!
