We convert used t-shirts into bags that we give away free to shoppers at the Downtown Windsor Farmers Market. Rather than prohibiting the use of single use plastic shopping bags, we prefer to give people a beautiful durable option.
Because we work with donated materials and the construction is ridiculously easy, it’s actually less effort to give the bags away free than it is to charge even a nominal amount. Some people love the idea so much that they give our project a cash donation. We use this money to subsidize tables for vendors who face financial barriers.
Where should people donate materials?:
Please bring your old t-shirts to the Management Tent at the Downtown Windsor Farmers Market on Saturday mornings from the last weekend in June till the last weekend in October. We can work with all kinds of t-shirts with sleeves, and most sizes other than the XXL kind.
