    Bags for the People, 303GRAND, and BurdaStyle have partnered together for an environmental and social action and awareness project called "The Sweatshop" that will take place July 18th from 1 to 6pm. Picture a room full of sewing machines, awesome music, good food, free drinks, and a heaping pile of fabric along with some amazing teachers to show you how to sew and make your own bag! Plus an amazing free pattern of the Charlie bag courtesy of BurdaStyle! We supply the machines and fabric, and you just bring yourself and be ready to sew & learn!

  • The United Nations Environmental Programme has released a report which has caused the head of UNEP to call for a world wide ban on plastic bags. I am working on obtaining the report to bring you up to date information that will further solidify why we are doing what we are doing and why we appreciate all your support.
