Mindful Shopping: Simple tips for sustainable & ethical purchases.

Living sustainably can feel overwhelming. Where do you even begin? Fear not, eco-warriors! Even small changes can have a big impact.

Invest in quality over quantity: Buy fewer, well-made items that will last longer than trendy, cheaply made goods.  💖  Borneo Bags are robust, can last for years and will never go out of style. The unique covering on the handles increases the lifespan of the bag, adding comfort and hygiene to boot.

Choose sustainable brands: Research companies committed to ethical practices and eco-friendly production. Pay attention to materials, certifications, and labour standards. Ask about their supply chain! 💖 Here at Borneo Bags there are NO factories, NO middlemen… Straight from the weaver's home to yours. This means that the weavers who make our handbags are paid a fair wage and work in safe conditions, in their very own homes. 

Support small businesses. Small businesses are often more likely to be committed to sustainability and ethical practices than large corporations. By supporting small businesses, you're helping to make a difference in the world.  💖 Borneo Bags is a small family run business and the profits are returned to the weavers to help with; healthcare, education, projects at village level and more!

Packaging: Opt for brands that use minimal packaging or packaging made from recycled materials.  💖 We’re committed to using as little plastic as possible, reusing courier bags from our retailers. If your parcel packaging arrives looking a little re-cycled, it is! and we are proud of it.

Ethical and fair trade fashion has never been cooler!!

Warm regards,
