Does your business use large amounts of product bags/wrappings that when empty go into the trash?

We can help reduce your trash by making them into Boomerang Bags!

There are a couple of options you can decide from: sponsor a Boomerang Bag Bee (where bring in sewing machines, you find volunteers and together we create bags out of your "trash", or we can pick up your clean, "trash" bags/wrappings and for a fee of $5 each we will sew them into bags that you can sell at your business. 

Please contact Kathy for ideas an details.

Our lovely labels are printed and donated by Larson's Printing. THANK YOU
