Your support of Guidestone’s work is critical to our collective success as we work together to grow a vibrant agricultural future! When you support Guidestone, you…

  • Provide youth, families and adults with the opportunity to learn about and grow their awareness, skills, and appreciation of farming, ranching and agricultural history.
  • Ensure students have access to healthy, locally grown food in their school meals and garden education and service learning incorporated into the classroom.
  • Support aspiring and current farmers, ranchers and landowners in finding access to land and other resources needed to launch successful agricultural businesses.
  • Help agriculture remain viable into the future.

Ways You Can Support

Purchase a Guidestone LastBag! The last bag you will ever need to buy! The LastBag, made for Guidestone by EQPD Gear in Twisp, WA, is versatile, reliable, and easy to care for. Built to carry most anything, LastBags are used for everything from groceries and beach gear to books and sports equipment.

The utilitarian design works in any climate, in any location, for all people. Don’t hesitate to place the bag on muddy, wet, or snowy ground, or carry oversized loads with just one handle. The 18 oz. #3 coated fabric is extremely durable, absolutely waterproof, puncture resistant and bleach safe. The seamless folded bottom prevents water from seeping in and exposed side seams allow the bag to stand upright and open, or fold flat. Features include:

  • Lifetime guarantee
  • Removable felt base
  • 90 lb tear strength
  • Reinforced, padded, and snapping handles
  • Two carry choices: hand or shoulder. The hand version has an oversized opening for forearm carry and the shoulder is adjustable for cross-body use.

EQPD estimates one LastBag, when used weekly for groceries, can eliminate 600 single-use bags per year. For every 10 years, when you say “no thank you” to single-use bags, you can save a 42-gallon barrel of oil (plastic bags), a dozen 20-year-old trees, and 5,000 gallons of water (paper bags).

Your purchase of a Guidestone LastBag provides 100% of retail profit directly to support Guidestone’s programs. Thank you for making a difference for a healthy community and a vibrant agricultural future!
