Sammy Bags (5)
Every Day around New Zealand hundreds of thousands of paper bags are being either disposed of by landfill or recycling. What most people don’t know is that plastic bags were created as a solution to the enormous environmental damage that paper bags were causing the planet. What we’re proposing is that customers take ownership of their waste, and shift to reusable and washable SammyBags which we believe will last for over 5 years if they’re well looked after. What the reusable cup is for coffee, SammyBags is for food. It’s all about reducing waste and shifting our behaviour from disposable, to reusable.
Our environment has a direct relationship to our mental health so we really believe in the concept of SammyBags as a vehicle for positive change. We made the connection between environmental sustainability and mental health courtesy of Sam’s tattoo, “Change Nothing; Nothing Changes” which is applicable to both mental and environmental health! Basically it’s implying that staying the same requires a decision just as much as changing does. Each time we choose to not change, we make a decision, so if we don’t choose reusable packaging, we are making the choice that nothing is going to change.
