Our cloth bags are traveling to other countries to convince people about the need to stop using plastic...
In a town called Heiden in Germany, a doctor Felix van Moll offers our cloth bags to the mayor Hans Jurgen Benson, with a request to make the town free of plastic bags. Felix has branded the bags and offers them to nurses and clients - proud to be a practise that avoids plastic.
Elections are around the corner in the east of Netherlands and the Labour Party expresses its love for the environment with our labour of love - the cloth bags. They will go to Rheden, Doesburg, Doetinchem en Montferland. All members of the labour party will get a bag each and they will also be distributed free to citizens on the street during the election campaigns.
