Announcing MGH’s Better Goods for a Better World

Announcing MGH’s Better Goods for a Better World

After years of birthday and school parties, I was sick of seeing so many of the traditional goody bags getting tossed right after every birthday party. Cellophane bags are so nice to put  treats in because they are convenient, transparent, cheap and easy. However, they are contributing to the never ending pile of plastic on earth, that never breaks down.

Hence, the search for the ultimate gift bag was born! Thanks to Jackie at @motif.jackie , she was able to help me turn my vision of the ultimate gift bag to fruition with her sustainable and eco-friendly fabric!

This versatile, lightweight, strong and sustainable fabric is a handwoven blend if undyed cotton and jute blend fibres. 

Zero carbon, zero toxicity, and after a long useful life, ultimately zero waste!
