How To Make A Reusable Bulk-Food Bag: Let’s Get It Started!

7. Turn the bag right side out and admire. After you finish sewing up that last side, turn the bag right side out and voila!

You’ve made your first zero-waste reusable bulk food bag.
To tie the bag, you cinch up the top of the bag, wrap the tie around the top several times and then tuck the tie into one of the loops you’ve made to secure it (pictured to the right).
The picture to the right also showcases additional types of designs you might use. You can use stencils, stamps or just hand draw things.
The options are limitless and with each bag you create—you’re creating an eco-friendly way to buy bulk!
