Trash to treasure! Made from 100% post-consumer, upcycled plastic water sachets, which once held drinking water in Ghana. In Ghana, water is sold in these plastic sachets and 270 tonnes of plastic waste is generated every day, the vast majority sachets for water and ice cream, and with no recycling program, much ends up littered on the streets. Each bag is carefully washed and disinfected before being sewn in a small workshop in Madina, Ghana.
Each is unique. Durable zip top. Handmade in Ghana by Global Mamas.
