On Earth Day (April 22nd), we will be releasing our Love Your Mother collection. This collection is a set of everyday reusable bags that were created with the hope of decreasing single use plastics. We teamed up with The Market Bags, a small Canadian business that shares our same mission.
The Love Your Mother collection includes: 1 tote bag, 1 net bag, 2 mesh bags, and 1 muslin bulk bag. Each bag is made from organic cotton that was sourced from a small family run factory in India. It was originally grown in Madhya Pradesh, India and then woven in Punjab, India. The thread used to bind the materials is sourced from Greece and China. Finally, the bags were made in Canada but collectively, each country mentioned has helped us create the Love Your Mother set.
The Market Bags will be donating partial proceeds from the manufacturing costs to the Sustainable Nourishment Program operated by the national charitable organization, Mamas For Mamas. This program gives families access to nutrient rich fresh foods, often grown locally. Likewise, we will be donating a portion of our proceeds to Change for a Hundred. A local fundraiser in Toronto that helps provide gift cards for households in need of groceries.
The little things we do everyday can lead to big change. Let’s take care of our mother, so she can continue to take care of us.
