These thoughtful party bags are a simple, kind and affordable gesture for larger groups of children with no plastic in sight! Kids will love to take home their unique Newspaper Bags which they can reuse and their very own seeds to grow and give them weeks of fun watching the seedlings sprout and the bees feeding from the flowers. They can complete the game on the back of the eco hero card and learn about how we can all help our planet. Sometimes the simplest things are the sweetest and we think these bags are just that.
Seeds – the packet is made from recycled paper and is its self fully recyclable. I get our seeds from a UK supplier and so all of the wildflower seeds are of native UK origin. They do not buy them in from Europe where the mixes are not entirely of British species. We only supply seeds that are of British wildflowers, and therefore suitable for our climate and insects.
Eco Hero Card – Bright and fun card that comes with a word search game and easy ways kids can help be eco-heros
Party Bag – Our newspaper bags are made by an NGO whose main objective is to provide education and shelter to street children. This eco-friendly product is made from recycled Indian newspaper. The organisation was started in 2004 by street children who wanted to give something back in return for the opportunities which had allowed them to escape desperate circumstances. These elder children, now with children of their own, generate an income by making newspaper bags and jute items. This allows them to take care of the children that they have taken in from the streets surrounding New Delhi train station. Support for this wonderful project means that these children can enjoy going to school and playing, rather than pulling rickshaws, shoe polishing, rag picking and worse.
The newspapers are either in Indian language or English. They are made from recycled newspapers, this is why sometimes your bag will have a completed crossword!
