Doing Good: Better Life Bags

A while ago I started posting about companies out there in the world who put a focus on doing something good for others. Maybe it’s my Jesuit education or maybe it’s just the basic idea of respect, but either way doing good is a pretty big deal for me. You can see my first installments of “Do Good” here (FashionABLEWarby Parker, Falling Whistles, 147 Million Orphans).

I’m so in love with Better Life Bags. Rebecca and her team create beautiful bags with an even better intention: employing and helping others. She gives a percentage of the profits to low income entreprenuers in developing countries and she also lives and works in Hamtramck, Michigan- a small community with great needs.By hiring women who otherwise wouldn’t be able to work, Rebecca is able to help create a team built around empowerment and respect. (Read more about her positive efforts.) In short, Rebecca sounds like a great woman and if she’s interested in becoming friends I would like that a lot.

While I wait for her phone call, here are some bags you can buy:
