Peterborough Re-use bags for Hochanda viewers

Peterborough Re-use, “British Renewable Energy Awards Finalist” have crafted an amazing idea of coffee bags from around the world. These kits will be exclusively designed and sold to Hochanda viewers only.

Ranged from just £9.99, each kit is unique due to the cut of the fabric, the inner material, ribbon used for handles, decoration and strength so viewers will definitely be spoiled for choice. Be the first to take a look here!

A bag from literally around the world
Australia, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica- to name a few- are some of the countries the coffee bags have come from. The bags each hold up to 65kg of coffee beans so they are extremely strong. Created to help eradicate our throwaway society ethos and to get the community involved in the project, Peterborough Re-use has held a series of workshops in the local area. These being sewing and fresh home-working opportunities. The initiative has given local people the opportunity to learn new skills and created fresh home-working opportunities.

Background
Now if you’re wondering how they are made: Peterborough Reuse first takes hessian and jute sacks first used to ship coffee beans from around the world to a local roasting and packing firm and turns them into various kits and bags.

The sacks are cleaned without losing their valuable integrity using ultra violet light technology to kill germs and bacteria and to maintain the strength of the sacks. This is vital to ensure the bright colours of the logos of the plantation that the coffee was sent from don’t lose their colours.
Once the bags are cleaned they are stored, ready for cutting. This is where our Peterborough locals come in, who cut it by hand.

The inner lining is also made from re-cycled material available from local businesses and charities which allows Peterborough Re-use to also give back to local charities and help the community at the same time. Now it's over to you, which one is your favourite? 


Peterborough Re-use remains committed to supporting local people and recycling materials within the local community.
