Freeset

Reusable Shopping Bags

Freeset

Our reusable shopping bags are manufactured and printed by Freeset, an organization dedicated to providing alternatives to women trapped in poverty and Kolkata, India’s sex trade.

Empowerment:

Freeset is based in Sonagacchi, the heart of Kolkata’s red light district where tens of thousands of young women are working as prostitutes daily.  Employees at the company earn twice the average wages,  are provided with health insurance, work in a family-friendly environment, and are involved in making business decisions that directly impact them. Many women who work at Freeset could barely use a pair of scissors when they were hired. Today, they are making beautiful bags of which they can be proud.  In addition to learning skills related to sewing and printing, employees learn valuable life skills, such as reading and community building.

Organic & Fair-trade:

Freeset bags are made from 100% organic cotton sheeting and canvas, using ethical manufacturing processes and environmentally friendly products. All raw materials are sourced from suppliers using sustainable processes and chemical-free dyes and are free from fertilizers, pesticides, hormones, and preservatives.

Dan Israel 

"Writing and performing great songs for the last 15 years, Dan Israel is easily one of the Twin Cities’ un-anointed poet laureates, steadfastly making his way into the ranks of local singer/songwriter legends like Paul Westerberg. Whether it’s with a full band or as a solo act, his work contains elements of intimacy and, as he again demonstrates on his (2011 release), “Crosstown Traveler,” an engaging simplicity that makes his deep music accessible to any audience. His performances showcase these same qualities."
