Everyone needs a sustainable tote bag in their repertoire. This is a firm favourite from our friends at Earth Squared has sturdy handles, but is also lightweight and practical. It’s seriously spacious (39W x 28H x 14.5D cm) and lined with satin, perfect for throwing over your shoulder or carrying by hand to the shops. You’ll be surprised at just how many of life’s essentials you can fit into this deceptive and sturdy bag!
The muted colour palate will complement the majority of outfit choices – making it the perfect gift or treat for yourself.
The artisans working with Earth Squared have retrained (many from rice farmers receiving irregular and unfair wages), and now have multiple new skills to their names. Working as a seamstress or in quality control, for example, a person can earn a good standard of living and can also afford to send their children to school and fund them through higher education. Earth Squared’s partners also pay National Insurance for each staff member, covering medical costs and a pension for retirement, all of which is above the national legal requirements.
