We are so excited that the Queensland Government is phasing out plastic bags by this year and that our environment will soon be cleaner and greener. This movement is in line with the sustainability and eco-friendliness that Sophia. supports and to celebrate this incredible change, we would like to announce that the newest products being introduced to the Sophia. range, are environmentally friendly tote bags!
These durable bags are a replacement for plastic and can be used over and over again for grocery shopping, as a beach bag as well as everyday use. Make sure you purchase your hand designed bag to have ready for when plastic bags are no longer an option. Do your bit to make Australia cleaner and our oceans free of plastic.
We are thrilled to announce that we have just launched our jellyfish tote bags in collaboration with Ocean Crusaders, a Brisbane based organisation who work tirelessly to clean our oceans and educate the public.
“The greatest issue our oceans face is that the world is unaware of the problem we are causing. The convenient plastic bag and plastic products are everywhere and no one thinks of where they are going. Humans slaughter thousands of dolphins, turtles and sharks and hundreds of whales every year with little knowledge of what damage we are causing. With representatives across the globe and growing constantly, our education program is a unique learning tool and available to everyone free of charge.”
Sophia Mulheran designs has created an intricate jellyfish design for the purpose of printing it onto reusable and eco-friendly cotton bags to use for shopping and every day use. The jellyfish symbolises the plastic bags that turtles mistake for food and looks to the future when our environment will hopefully be free from this toxic and harmful waste.
Across Queensland, plastic bags will no longer be available in retailers and so these bags are the perfect alternative. These carefully designed tote bags are great for everyday use as well as raising awareness for our precious sea life and reducing plastic waste.
50% percent of the profits are going straight to Ocean Crusaders to help them to continue the work they already do as well as supporting their many campaigns. If you’d love to do your part and stop using plastic bags while supporting wonderful initiatives, then purchase your very own tote bag under our “Limited Edition” section.
If you’ve got feedback, questions or queries about this campaign, make sure you let us know!
