Come celebrate the Farmers’ Market and make a reusable bag out of a t-shirt!  We will have a table at the Arcata Co-op and show you how to make a reusable bag, then screen print the Ban the Bag Humboldt logo.  Or, bring us a shirt of your own and we will screen print it for free for you to wear to proudly show your support!
