A Ticking Bag

Come to the first Bag Bee, Wednesday, September 5 at 2 pm in the library at the North Chapel, 7 Church Street, Woodstock, Vermont. 

We will be making Ticking Bags that will be used to help clean up the the oceans of the world. Although it sounds complicated, it's quite simple. Every piece of plastic that's recycled doesn't end up floating in the sea, or worse yet in the gut of an unsuspecting sea bird. 

Take a Ticking Bag with you wherever you go and you will always have a place to put every random piece of trash you come across until you can recycle it.  

Now, about the Ticking Part 
A part of every bag will be a piece of cotton ticking
Ticking is handsome and easily identifiable, not to mention stylishly cool 
Ticking makes us aware of the passage of time
Ticking also suggests the bomb we're working to diffuse by our actions
Ticking is traditionally used for mattresses and pillows so it suggests the dream we share
