"What if no one returns the bags?" is a question we get asked a lot!
Our answer: We will be doing as much as possible to encourage people to return the bag they've borrowed, so that it canl be there for them when they need it the next time they get caught without.
If the bags do go on a longer home visits, then hopefully they be reused and appreciated. We will encourage people to take photos of their adventures with their bags and help spread the message about avoiding single-use plastic.
Meanwhile, we'll continue our acts of kindness, sewing more bags and making them available for those who need them, and gradually grow the number of locations where the bags can be made available. The more bags get returned, the faster we'll be able to be available in a store near you.
