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!

I bought these for my daughters 7th birthday party. They were the perfect size and my daughter was delighted with them. All the children liked the postcard too with tips to save the planet and a wordsearch. A great alternative to the usual plastic bags.

I was really impressed with these little bags. Helping the environment and a charity in India! I would definitely buy them again. They were a perfect size too. The adults were really impressed too.
