Mountain Mamas is a social enterprise empowering local women in the mountains of Bali, initiated by Bye Bye Plastic Bags in 2017.
Each Mountain Mama participating in this project is given the training skills to produce these hand-made alternative bags, made from donated, pre-loved or recycled material. By purchasing a Mountain Mamas bag you will be contributing to a more sustainable lifestyle for the village.
50% of the profit will go back to the work of Bye Bye Plastic Bags and 50% of the profit will go back to the village to be used for three key elements:
1) WASTE: The set-up of a waste management system partnering with Eco Bali
2) EDUCATION: Investing in the local schools, English classes, computers, etc.
3) HEALTH: distribution of healthcare packages for each family.
Every bag is made on a voluntary base commitment and stamped by the women who made the bag so we can keep track of of the production and who will be able to see who made your beautiful bag, just go on our website and look it up!
Each Mountain Mamas Bag is a one of a kind as we are using the materials we receive from donations or our partners, so no bag is exactly the same. The one you will receive may look slightly different than the one in this photo! But we can guarantee that each and every bag is made with love and with the purpose to empower women, who in return will empower the world!
