Freeset

Freeset

 

Freeset is a fair trade business offering employment to women trapped in Calcutta’s sex trade.  They make quality jute bags, organic fair trade cotton bags, and organic cotton t-shirts, but their business is freedom!

They would like to see the 10,000 sex workers in their neighborhood empowered with the choice of leaving a profession they never chose in the first place.  Take a look at a video about their work here.

Many of Freeset's bags are made from jute, an organic fiber that will break down in 2-3 years (as opposed to plastic bags, which can take 1,000 years to break down).  Their laminated jute bags have a biodegradable plastic backing, which means that they are still environmentally friendly!
