Bazura Bags Review: Bags that Give Back!

Not only are Bazura Bags stylish and eco-friendly, they also help women in the Philippines bounce back after the devastating typhoon that happened in that part of the world in 2009.


Turning the Tide

There’s a group of women in the Philippines that we really think you ought to know about. They recently went through a horrible natural disaster – a huge typhoon that devastated much of their land. But instead of being victims, these women have decided to start rebuilding their lives. They’re making beautiful, colorful and stylish bags, purses and other accessories out of eco-friendly materials. These products are so cool, we know you won’t be able to wait to get your hand on them – and, at the same time, start helping these brave women out!


Recycled Treasures

Bazura Bags, which come in a number of different shapes and sizes, are made out of colorful and non-bio-degradable juice containers (no matter how long these juice containers sit in a landfill or garbage dump, they won’t biodegrade or break back down into the earth). These handmade, adorable bags and accessories add a touch of glam to recycled goods while at the same time helping to clean up the environment and support an entire community.


Bazura Biz

Basura actually means “garbage” in Filipino, the language that the women who make the bags speak. They come in over 80 styles and hundreds of bright colors. The juice containers from which the bags are made feature pictures of exotic fruit – and even give the bags a hint of fresh fruit scent! Check out the grocery and market bags, backpacks, cute coin purses, messenger bags, lunch bags, purses and more by visiting .

Dear Dish-It In The Forums

While engagement isn't illegal for juveniles, marriage is as you can already tell. Judging by your feelings, I don't think the relationship will last long enough for him to be able to wait. I heard some courts will allow it, depending on location. Knowing whether her engagement is okay is a tricky thing. She seems pretty confident in the relationship. As for your own feelings, how well do you know him? Do you have any knowledge about him outside their love life? Do her parents know anything about him? If you don't now the answers, don't be afraid to ask them to her or her parents. I'm also a 16-year-old girl and I don't feel comfortable with it. Many young adults have a hard time understanding the transition from  teen to adult, but if he's put his problems on her, that's a bad sign. I don't think 5 months is long enough in my opinion and I think this could lead to making bad habits in a relationship. I appreciate that you're trying to help your friend be safe. Hopefully some of her closest people will help her with you. They don't necessarily have to steer her against him, but they should help guide her into deciding what's best ad how to carry on from that.

I don't even think that legal for a adult to marry a teen I think you should ask that part to make sure my theory is correct

Do your parents know her parents? Maybe you could get your parents to speak to hers. Or if not, maybe tell her parents yourself that you're concerned. Try speaking to her and making sure she's 100% sure about what she's doing?

So last year my friend got engaged at the age of sixteen to a guy of twenty-one and they only dated for 5 months at the time. I'm afraid she's making a mistake. They're still together, but her guy seems like he has a temper and might get abusive in the future.  What should I do?
