Araliya Community Coconut String Bag in Lime, biodegradable and sustainable, available online at Flora & Fauna.
Globally we use 10 billion plastic bags a week. It's a huge amount of waste which goes straight into landfill or our oceans damagine marine life. So we have a solution better for the environment and something we can use more than once. These string bags are made just from coconut fibres and are durable, long lasting and anti bacterial. Great for shopping and perfect for putting the kids toys in and veggies in the kitchen.
The bags are handmade by the Araliya Community in Sri Lanka. This community is a company where each member owns a share of the comany and its assets. It's a company where decisions are made fairly, they are paid fair wages and they contribute to a school for deaf in Sri Lanka.
Dimensions: 45cm long x 34cm (approximately). Each bag is handmade so sizes do vary.
Note: If any fibres fall out when new don't worry that's extra fibres left in from when it's made.
The cardboard tag can usually be recycled in kerbside recycling or composted. Check with your local council if they will take it and what criteria they have for recycling it. See our recycling 101 blog post for more information.
