Old Bags with New Purpose
We’ve all been there. One day you are at the store and realize that your favorite reusable bag, the one you’ve had for the past several years which has been with you through rain and shine, has a rip that is beyond your ability to repair.
Never fear! ChicoBag has partnered with The Grateful Thread to accept old reusable bags and put them to a new use. Bags that can be repaired will be given to families who can’t afford to purchase reusable bags. Bags that can’t be repaired will be turned into useful new products, such as beautiful hand-woven rugs.
You can mail clean, old reusable bags to this address:
