Bazura Recycled Bags
BaZura Bags is working with a women’s co-op in the Philippines that set up a Livelihood Project assisted by the local village council. With almost no capital, the women found a very clever way to support themselves.

Every day, children from the local schools collect over 50,000 used drink containers, called doy packs, then sell them to the co-op. The packs are sanitized and the women sew them together into attractive, durable bags.

We estimate that millions of these containers get thrown in the trash everyday in the Philippines. Until we find a way to recycle them, or stop using this material altogether, we would like to reuse as many empty drink containers as possible and, in the process, support fair trade.

BaZura comes from the word 'basura', meaning 'garbage' in the Phillippines. Replacing the 's' with a 'Z' symbolizes not only recycling of materials, but also the language. These bags are sturdy, and weather worthy!
