Earth Day Travel Utensil Bag
10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Has this happened to you? You say,"I should really quit it with the single-use plastics!" and then you go to the coffee shop and the iced coffee sounds so good (but you're wearing white so going lidless is out of the question) so you order the coffee anyway, but with a promise: "This is the last straw!"

What better day to make good on that promise?!? 

Come in and make a little drawstring bag, perfect for holding a metal straw, a fork and a spoon so you'll always have your earth-friendly gear in your purse, pack or glovebox, and will never again have to say no to a tasty treat, or get caught eating your soup with your hands. We'll even give you a metal straw so you can immediately begin your quest to reduce waste!

Happy Earth Day!

No sewing experience necessary. Please register.
