Beginning Friday, September 24. While supplies last

Be prepared for Washington State’s single-use plastic bag ban with this stylish, reusable, no-sew bag.  Pick up a kit at your nearest NOLS branch, while supplies last.  You’ll have a fashionable, washable, dryer-able, upcycled bag in no time!

The T-shirt Bag Take & Make kit includes instructions and one T-shirt from a previous Summer Reading Challenge. All you need is a pair of scissors.  Other handy, but optional, supplies include a fabric pen, regular pencil or chalk, and a ruler or straight edge. Check out books from the NOLS collection to make your bag even more spectacular – search the catalog for embroidery, tie-dye, mending, sewing instructions, and more.

Plan ahead now to protect and carry your library materials all winter long!  Use a NOLS T-Shirt – or a shirt from home; reusable bags are a better alternative to the 2 billion single-use plastic bags Washingtonians use every year!  See the Department of Ecology website for more information about the bag ban that begins on October 1.

T-Shirt bags are also a great way to get a little more life out of a shirt that has small rips or stains.  In 2018, the U.S. added over 11 million tons of clothing to landfills.  Keep clothes out of the landfill a little longer by upcycling into a useful, beautiful creation.  Check out the EPA website to learn more about textile waste and recycling.
