The feed bags come from Cambodia, South Africa, Morocco, and the US and they work with local sewers in the Pacific Northwest as well as artisans in Cambodia to finish the process.
$1.00 from each bag goes to support sustainable practices. and healthy communities worldwide.
The story of these bags began in the rural farmlands of Cambodia where a local woman decided to take action in her community. Farmers were not only living in poverty but also in a toxic environment. This woman noticed that the bags used for processing and shipping of fish and animal feed, cement, and other products were piling up and not being disposed of properly. She began purchasing the discarded materials from the communities and recycling them. She then employed local families to wash, dry, and sew the materials into durable, water-resistant, and colorful tote bags.
Since then, they have developed relationships with more artisans in Cambodia and are now employing Artisans from communities who have been displaced from their farmlands or affected by landmines or polio.
