New Farmers Market bags available

bag design small

 

A new ethical bag is now available at the Lyttelton Farmers Market. Beautifully designed by Steven Junil Park, the bag is made by New Zealand company Freeset. Here is their story:

For hundreds of women who were trapped in India's sex trade, working forFreeset brings freedom from a life that robbed them of dignity and hope.

Freeset is in the business of restoring what has been stolen. Women are given the opportunity to choose a new job and regain control of their lives in a caring community. Making this product is part of a woman's journey to freedom. To her friends and neighbours among the thousands still trapped in porstitution, she is a symbol of hope.

The bags are available for $25 each. By buying reusable bags, you not only support the work of Freeset and the Lyttelton Farmers Market, you are also reducing waste and setting an example by saying no to single-use plastic bags in our community.
