Description

A cocktail style bag, with shoulder strap, made from factory second rejected crisp packets otherwise destined for landfill. The bag is made by GRUPEDSAC, a charity organisation in Mexico dedicated to promoting sustainable development among small farmers and indigenous people living in extreme poverty in Mexico. Crisp packets are commonly made from polypropylene film and are not considered to be of sufficiently high value as a recyled commodity. Each bag uses over 200 crisp packets and in so doing plays a significant role in the lessening of landfill pollution. This surprisingly tough bag is woven into shape and fastens with a zip along the top edge.
