Reusable bags a delight in Connecticut - and perfectly environmentally friendly

This group shows how easy it is to make changes that matter!

FAIRFIELD - According to library officials, Mary Hogue, Chairman, of the Fairfield Earth Day Committee asked the Fairfield Woods Branch Library’s Sewing Studio, if they would be willing to make cloth bags for Fairfield’s April 30 Earth Day Celebration.
It worked!
"Several woman and children took on the challenge of producing cloth bags for people to use instead of plastic," the release said.

"Initially the goal was to sew 30 bags; however, over six weeks and much dedication, 115 bags were made and given away" at the celebration, according to a release.
