Reusable bags being produced by Zero Waste Sooke

Zero Waste Sooke will demonstrate bag construction at Sooke Country Market on Saturday.

Zero Waste Sooke, with sewing machines in tow, will demonstrate how to make reusable bags for produce and bulk food items at Sooke Country Market on Saturday (Aug. 20).

The bags will be made out of “upcycled” sheer curtains and T-shirts and are a way of reducing the use of plastic bags.

Zero Waste Sooke will have a handout with instructions for making your own bags, 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 Sooke Library, beginning at 6:30 p.m.

For more information, please check out the Zero Waste Sooke Facebook page or go online to zerowastesooke.ca.
