Earth Bags (India - Fair Trade)

Earth Bags

Producing ethical jute bags for a greener world since 1996

Earth Bags is based in Kolkata, India and specialises in bags made from jute, a sustainable material which is becoming increasingly popular as people search for alternatives to plastic bags. It is not a recognised Fair Trade organisation, but goes out of its way to ensure that its wages and working conditions are excellent.

Earth Bags produced Simply The Best's own jute bags, which became available in August 2010. Simply The Best are committed to ensuring that ALL profits from the sale of these bags will go to sponsor a little girl named Rani who lives in one of the SOS Children's Villages in India.

The project benefits from around £2.50 for each bag sold.
