Green holiday gifts

Bazura Bags are a line of bright and colourful bags, totes, and accessories, hand-crafted by a woman’s’ cooperative in the Philippines. “Bazura” means garbage in Filipino, and indeed the bags are made from recycled juice containers. The co-op employs more than 500 women and pays schoolchildren to collect litter.

These colourful and amusing bags are perfect for shopping, the gym, or any type of errand. 
This Christmas, think green and give a Bazura bag! A shopping bag makes a perfect Secret Santa or office grab gift! There are many cute styles to choose from, including mini-bags, cosmetic bags, backpacks, and — my favourite — the shopping bag. They also make boxes and flip-flops. There’s something cute, green, and affordable for everyone.
