Our very own fair trade 'One World Shop' jute bag is perfect for everyday use - and you will be helping to promote fair trade every time you use it!
The handle is long enough to sit comfortably on your shoulder, but still short enough that it won't scrape along the floor when carrying by hand. A great wee bag for bringing your shopping home and the inside is laminated for extra protection and durability. Use for school or work, A4 folders will fit very nicely too!
These bags are produced and printed by Action Bag in Bangladesh. They have employed more than 1500 women over the years; many of them have gone on to start their own business, given their children a good education and built their own houses. Apart from sewing skills, the women also receive training in literacy, mother and child health care, family planning, nutrition, finance and legal aid. They also are entitled to receive all kinds of benefits such as loans, medical assistance, festival bonuses, cash dividends and provident money which is given at the time of retirement.
