We use these amazing gift bags, we love them!
The India Shop-Fairly Traded Gifts
Our newspaper bags are made by an NGO whose main objective is to provide education and shelter to street children.
This eco-friendly product is made from recycled Indian newspaper.
The organisation was 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 wonderful 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 either in Indian language or English. They are made from recycled newspapers, this is why sometimes your bag will have a completed crossword!
