THE STORY BEHIND THE PRODUCT

Artisan Organization: Trashy Bags

Country: Ghana

Anastasia Lavie has no memories of playing as a child, but she does recall seeing other children at play and wondering how they had the time. Most of her own time was spent selling food on the street for her family, who were too poor to put her in school.

But Anastasia never let go of her fervent desire for an education. At 18, she finally gained some training in sewing and textiles. Instantly, her future became charged with a glimmer of possibility and she resolved to give her own children the chances she lacked. And the happy memories.

“Children need good memories,” she says. On behalf of her children, Anastasia commutes several hours a day to work, and looks after them while at home. Having worked for Trashy Bags since 2007, Anastasia is one of their most skilled, and positive, employees.

Such a beautiful bag

I love this recycled/up cycled bag. I have a thing for textures and this feeds my obsession. It is convenient because it folds up to the perfect size for you purse. It opens up into a nice size to hold lots of groceries. It’s easy to clean and wash. I bought 4 of them I loved it so much. I am glad it helped the environment and gives fair pay to people who need it. I am very happy with them.

Ps. One bag had some damage and Globein addressed the matter without hesitation. They replaced the bag for me. I am very grateful. So no worries about customer service. They treat you right. Thank you for all the good work you do!!!!

Great bag!

I received one of these in an earlier box and loved it! It has become my go-to bag for shopping and traveling with my dog. It holds more than expected and is well made. I love the fact that it’s made from recycled bags and zips into a small size for easy storage. This one was purchased for a gift and has not been used yet. The photos are of my original bag.
