Need-a-Bag? Project Update February

Note: Need-a-Bag? is a project to promote sustainable bagging at the Hwy 441 Alachua County Farmer's Market each Saturday morning. We supply resusable tote bags reclaimed from thrift stores and garage sales. Need-a-Bag? also utilizes old tank tops as tote bags by sewing up the bottoms (these are called t-totes). We invite you to read the other posts on the project by clicking the "Need-a-Bag? Project" label at the bottom of this post.

It was a little chilly this morning but not rainy, at least. In fact, it was a beautiful, sunny day. A gentleman told me about seeing some planetary alignment while I put bags on the chain-link fence. I haven't been watching Jack Horkheimer lately, so I am definitely in the dark about the planetary happety-haps of late and it was nice to get the after sunrise wrap-up.

The most recent event has been a young woman who has been selling tote bags with the Alachua County Farmer's Market label -- made from recycled fabrics! It is so awesome, the bags look really sturdy and big, and they're cheap at $4 a pop.
