New to Recycled Market, we have fair trade gift bags, which are made from recycled newspaper in India.The bags are offered by a Recycled Market Seller that goes by the name of “I’ve No Idea”
These eco recycled newspaper bags are made by an NGO whose main objective is to provide education and shelter to street children. The organisation started in 2004 by street children who wanted to give something back in return for the opportunities which had allowed them to escape desperate circumstances.
These elder children, now married with children of their own, generate an income by making newspaper bags and jute items. This allows them to take care of thirteen street children that they have saved from the streets surrounding Delhi train station. Support for this project means that these children can enjoy going to school and playing, rather than pulling rickshaws, shoe polishing, rag picking and worse. The newspapers are collected by bicycle rickshaw calling at residential homes for any read newspapers.
Buying a set of 5 means (they are sold in a bundle of 5) you can keep in your cupboard, and use as eco-friendly recycled gift wrap for gifts throughout the year.
