Each week thousands of plastic bags are used in the bakeries on Sal - how many of those end up on the streets or in the sea?
Why not get everyone using traditional cloth bags instead. Functional, reusable and beautiful.
Here is a small start!
SOS Tartarugas collected unwanted cloth and clothes at Padaria Dado (in Santa Maria) to be made into bread bags by the women's association RA-AMAO. In return we gave those who donated a hand decorated (with turtles of course!) bread bag.
This small promotion was a great success and will be repeated soon in Espargos. More photos.
