A fun coin purse with a fold-over flap and velcro fastener.
Dimensions: approx. 10cm wide, 9cm high
These coin purses are part of a range of bags, wallets and accessories made from recycled juice packs - non-biodegradable foil and plastic packaging that would otherwise go into landfill sites and incinerators. The bags are made in the Philippines by a women's cooperative near Manila. The cooperative produces approximately 500,000 bags and household items per year, thus preventing many millions of juice packs from being burnt, buried or simply littering the streets and waterways. The cooperative has won a number of awards in the Philippines for its concern for the environment and its outstanding contribution to waste recycling and employment generation.
