The Benalla Plastic Wise community sewing events have been growing each fortnight as the community becomes more aware of the damage that single use plastic has on our environment.
Every fortnight a team of committed volunteers meet at the Drill Hall to lend their time and skill to creating reusable bags from upcycled materials. Take-home kits have also been a hit, with those who cannot make the working bees picking up a sewing kit and helping out from home.
Without our wonderful community this venture wouldn't be possible. With even the big chain supermarkets getting on board it won't be long until everyone will sporting our beautiful bags!
We hope to see you soon! If you would like to grab a sew-at-home kit, or can donate some material or cotton, please get in touch so we can continue to provide for our community, and for our environment.
Some of our beautiful creations! These are only $5 each - they're sturdy, unique, and have a handy pocket on the side.
