In case you hadn't heard, in May 2019 we launched a Morsbag 'Pod' at Athens Makerspace. What is a Morsbag, you ask? An international movement known as Morsbags has formed 'pods' of sewists all over the world who meet up to sociably upcycle fabrics into reusable bags that are then given away for FREE! At stores, at markets and fairs, wrapped around gifts, to colleagues, friends, and to anyone and anywhere you can think of to get them out into the world and replacing countless single-use bags in the years they'll last. Why replace plastic bags? However much we think we are recycling or properly disposing of bags after use, the sad truth is that many of them escape and end up in the ocean. Plastic bags in water then become serial killers. They are eaten by marine wildlife, which often mistake plastic bags for jellyfish. The fish, whale, turtle, or bird dies and decomposes around the bag. The bag floats off, ready for its next victim.
