About the initiative:
Rethink Bags was created in late 2017 for two main reasons. The first was a desire to assist young women who have not had opportunities to finish school and study further. There is a wealth of talent and passion lying wasted on farms and in towns all around South Africa and further afield. By sharing one of the founder’s passions – sewing and using it to create beautiful, functional re-usable shopping bags – Rethink Bags is addressing the second reason for the creation of the business, that of tackling plastic pollution.
