Fair trade bags and eco-friendly bags
Producers of fair trade bags work with marginalised workers to help them overcome vulnerability and become economically self-sufficient. They aim to empower workers to become stakeholders in their own organisations and play a more active role in global markets, thereby achieving greater fairness and equality in international trade.
There are eco-friendly and fair trade bags to cover every need – fashion bags, cotton bags, shopping bags, Jute bags and recycled bags – all ethical, environmentally friendly and sustainable.
Did you know? Five trillion plastic bags are manufactured globally each year! It takes around 1,000 years for a plastic bag to break down. In the process, toxic substances leak into the soil and enter the food chain. Approximately 1 billion seabirds and mammals die each year by ingesting plastic bags (source: Say No To Plastic Bags).
