What is the problem you found?

How might we reduce the use of plastic bags in shopping?

Customer / Problem

Our customers are everyday shoppers in our community. They prefer the convenience and would often choose to shop with plastic bags despite being aware of the environmental impact of plastic.

What Is Your Solution?

Our solution is making and selling fabric bags for shopping and food storage instead of plastic bags. The bags are eco friendly and very easy to use or store. We rely on donations of discarded fabric to create our bags and encourage our community to drop unused fabric at our collection points at strategic sites. We have many different designs including customisable bags to suit specific customer needs. Most of the money goes to charity and towards getting the rubbish off our streets.
