Saving the Rainforest with Bags of Style!

Posted in Environment.

Readers of Craft’s Beautiful and Let’s Make Cards magazines have been putting their craft skills to very good use to support our Yorkshire Rainforest Project! Crafters across the country were called on to help us raise funds for the project by designing and decorating their own ‘eco-bags’.

We have had some stunning entries, with bags sporting brightly coloured parrots, sparkling butterflies and fabulous floral motifs.

All of these bags will support our mission to help save an area of rainforest the size of Yorkshire. For the first stage of our campaign we are working with the Rainforest Foundation UK, in the Ashaninka Communal Reserve of Peru’s Amazon rainforest to provide the Ashaninka community with essential training to resist those looking to exploit the forest's rich resources, and to help families make a living by developing small-scale sustainable livelihood programmes.

Picking a winning bag is going to be a challenge, but a huge thank you to everyone who has sent in a bag and to Craft’s Beautiful and Let’s Make Cards for their support.
