If you are choosing a reusable bag, look closely at a product such as the Nature Bag. This eco-friendly bag is clearly beneficial for everyone concerned because of its long life-cycle, biodegradability, freedom from agricultural production, miniscule weight, stretchable versatility, absence of manufacturing, life-enriching impact on its at-home makers, practical beauty and thousands of years of rigorous in-use testing, refinement & sustainability.

What is Nature Bag?

The Nature Bag is unique in style, structure and shape. Homemade in Laos from wild-growing JungleVine™ cord, its design has been perfected by thousands of years of use on steep mountainsides by the Khmu indigenous minority. The result is a sturdy versatile eco-friendly bag evolved from the survival necessity of safely carrying a day’s harvest.

Who makes the Eco-Friendly Bag?

Southeast Asia’s poorest make these environment-friendly tote bags at home by hand. Coordination and quality control come from a 23 year-old Laotian student. Skilled volunteers empower our poverty-reduction mission. Funding is entirely private, mainly from an elderly disabled American.

Why use Nature Bag?

The stretchable durable reusable grocery bags provide a fashionable ultimate green way to leave non-organic bags behind. JungleVine™ fabric, from tropical kudzu, purifies our air by removing harmful carbon and creating oxygen to breathe. Making these natural bags at home aids in child nurturing, preserves traditional social interaction and needs no wasteful commuting.

“For thousands of years, these bags have only been made in the homes of the Khmu ethnic group of Laos, a landlocked country in Southeast Asia with one of the lowest per capita income levels in the world. Aimed at reducing poverty in this region, the Nature Bag is the brainchild of Bounsou Keoamphone, a student and son of a poor rice farmer in the remote, mountainous Oudomxai Province in northern Laos. The startup funds came from a retired Iowa philanthropist.” – Home Zone by Maggie Reed http://www.Creators.Com

About Kathy Dowsett

I believe in protecting our oceans, lakes and rivers, as well as their aquatic life. I respect the work of conservation groups such as Save the Sharks, Save the Sea Turtles and Save our Wrecks. I believe that the use of plastic bags/bottled water should be discouraged as plastic finds its way to the ocean. I also support Diving for the Disabled and Swimming for the Disabled. As a PADI-certified diver, my interest in diving led to the opening in July 2008 of kirkscubagear, my online business. My site offers more than 2,000 products, including freediving, swimming and outdoor equipment. My continuing goal is to encourage diving and offer customers a shopping alternative for the purchase of scuba gear.
