Every year, the world consumes a trillion plastic bags. Every minute we use a million. Imagine 1,000,000 plastic bags. By reusing the “I am not Plastic” bag, you instantly lessen the need for plastic which is the leading cause of garbage worldwide and contributes to marine degradation. These bags is the brainchild of Edgy Ecology Inc.
This bag was sewn by marginalized women from Tandang Sora, Quezon City. By purchasing this bag, you have contributed to their livelihood. That’s hitting two birds with one stone. Help save the Earth and Contribute Livelihood to Marginalized women.
â€œSomewhere in between the pursuit of individual style and staying current with fashion, and caring for the planet we live in, there is an area of conflict. We donâ€™t see why we canâ€™t try to do away with that,â€ says Jessica Duque-Cabuay, one of the partners of EdgyEcology, Inc.
The press release explains further:
The enterprising women behind EdgyEcology, brought together their experiences from the worlds of fashion, publishing, and education to come up with their own baby steps in solving the environmental problem with their Not Plastic Project. â€œWe thought we should start with something everyone can take part in, and that would be minimizing if not totally eliminating the need for plastic bags,â€ says Jessica, who, along with partners Carisse Escueta and Cathy Babao-Guballa, is launching a line of reusable carryalls, starting with their maiden â€œI am not plasticâ€ bags.
I am so touched with the launch of this earth friendly business venture. Not many businesses out there contribute to the future of our country. Most companies’ sustainability or their environmental policies are all for publicity or marketing purposes. With reliable partners like Jessica Duque Cabuay , Carisse Escueta and Cathy Babao-Guballa, the public are assured of their commitment to the environment and helping the livelihood of marginalized women. Let’s support Edgy Technology’s products.
The stylish canvass bag is quite affordable . It is a 12â€ x 16â€ x 5â€ cotton muslin carryall with an inside pocket and the catchy statement, â€œI am Not Plasticâ€ printed on one side and their Not Plastic logo on the other. Each bag costs 350 pesos (or $7.00) and presently sold at the The Not Plastic Project reusable carryalls are currently available at Ireneâ€™s Closet or at all the other outlets in the Archaeology wing, R2 level, the Power Plant, Makati City.
