For two sessions we had Lesley Ottey from Eco Educate come to talk to us. She was taught us how to make t-shirt bags. We joined with our Year 7-8 class and they helped us make no-sew bags from old t-shirts. These upcycled reusable bags are being handed out in community with the important message about reducing single use plastic. Some went to the hardworking volunteers at budget services and some have also gone to some local RTLBs to use as teaching kits. The bulk are for sale, gold coin , at CBK in Kaiapoi with money going to Kaiapoi food forest. We are making these no sew bags because we are trying to reduce the amount of single use plastic bags and generally just plastic we use. It also reduces our landfill.
