Clothing Swap @ the Dandelion Cafe
March 22nd, 2019, 6:30PM – 8:30PM

Join our team and our friends at the Dandelion Cafe on World Water Day while we swap clothes and ideas on reducing our impact. Bringing the plastic pollution conversation full circle, we will share and discuss how clothes/textiles fit in.  From water usage in the manufacturing of textiles to microfibres released into the water systems from our own home laundering. In conjunction with the 2019 ‘s World Water Day theme, ‘Leaving no one behind’, this event is open to all humans who wear clothes.

Please contact us at isabelle@plasticfreeyyc.com if you would like to get on the waitlist.

Boomerang Bags YYC Sewcials – Northmount Pleasant

Every 3rd Thursday of the month volunteers get together to make re-useable ‘Boomerang Bags’ using recycled materials to replace plastic bags, in a fun, casual environment.

They need helpers to cut out bag patterns, iron the pieces, stamp the pockets, sew the bags, and whatever else needs to be done to make the BBYYC bags look great!

BBYYC provides all the supplies (fabric, sewing supplies and machines); however, participants are welcome to bring their own sewing machine, (if it’s easy to transport).  *This is a family friendly event*

Boomerang Bags YYC : a local, grassroots chapter of Boomerang Bags – a global movement aimed at eliminating the use of single-use plastic bags while raising awareness about plastics in our environment.
