Look good … do good … feel good!
And by buying one, you’ll also improve people’s lives and help the environment. Uzwelo, an Expand a Sign initiative, has teamed up with seamstresses from some of KwaZulu-Natal’s poorest communities, training them to make these lovely handcrafted bags from left-over banner fabric, which would otherwise be destined for landfills. At R220 for the standard size and R310 for the large bag, they’re affordable and wonderful Christmas pressies. Plus you can buy online, so no need to suffer the shopping mall crowds.
