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 .

I'd also shift the blame onto the parents. It's disgusting and appalling to know that parents don't care about their own child's wellbeing.

Her parents didn't tell her do anything with anyone , She did. Her parents isn't involved in this case!!  She's 13. Kids that age base some of their decisions off of what their parents say. Her parents should have told her what's right and what's wrong, which they most likely didn't do since apparently they didn't care.
