EVERY BAG UNIQUELY YOURS
Every recycled bag is one-of-a-kind! As we collect used materials, it is simply not possible to replicate the same fabrics over and over. Patterns and shapes are all a little bit different. Expect slight imperfections. Between fabric, the seamstress who made it, the family who received the rice, and you, every bag has a different story. You are giving life. You are a part of the story.
RECYCLED = ECO-FRIENDLY
Handmade from used jute/burlap rice bags, the bags in the Recycled Collection are made from plant-based fibers, are biodegradable, and eco-friendly. Our recycled bags have the natural smell of jute/burlap. We keep discarded rice bags out of the landfills and give them new life! Buying this bag helps preserve the earth's resources! Good karma. Good vibes.
WHAT YOU ARE GIVING
Your purchase of this bag provides 1 kilo (2.2 lbs) of rice to a family in need in India. Indians typically eat rice three meals per day. 1 kilo will last the average family of four a little over 1 day (4 people x 3 meals = 12 meals total). We give away 25 kilos of rice at a time. 25 items = 25 kilos. This typically gives families about a month of rice! Buying this bag feeds families!
