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.

Clothes Made from Scrap

Clothes Made from Scrap

We have carefully selected Clothes Made From Scrap, Inc as our t-shirt supplier of choice because of their commitment to protecting our environment, combined with a dedication to producing a quality, comfortable shirt.

All CMFS t-shirts are made from recycled plastic soda bottles and reclaimed cotton, making each t-shirt subscription a contribution to protecting our environment. Recycling prevents these items from filling up our landfills and reduces pollution of the air water and land.

The t-shirts resulting from this process are comfortable, durable, and soft. Join us and try one for yourself.
