Bags for Good
Bags For Good is a community-led project of the Just Atelier Trust, which works to reduce landfill by repurposing pre-loved textiles into good quality reusable bags, celebrating good design and craftsmanship to ensure maximum re-use. Bags For Good brings together people who care about reducing waste, minimising single-use plastic, sharing skills, simple acts of kindness, and supporting local community, and holds regular working bees on Thursday mornings throughout the year. These working bees run from 10am-1pm at 88 Vogel Street. Everyone is welcome and there is something for everyone, whatever your previous experience. This is also a great opportunity for home sewists to pop in and top up their supplies, ask any questions, or drop off any fabric, thread, etc you may have surplus in your stash. Help save the world from the clutches of the plastic bag!
Looking to buy things you need while helping a good cause? ReStore on the corner of Gordon and Vogel Streets is there if you’re looking for something a little different, retro or cheaper including clothes, kitchenware, furniture, books and more. Make your income go further by shopping with ReStore which helps raise money for the Malcam Charitable Trust and for Habitat For Humanity.
