Luntian Bags

Ichay Bulaong, a corporate executive who wanted to give back to her local weekend-home community, and promote the anti-plastic advocacy by using canvas bags for shopping trips instead of plastic ones. Luntian Bags is a program based in San Teodoro, Mabini, Batangas, Philippines which provides livelihood for 18 individuals - cutting, sewing, printing, and doing embroidery. These are mostly stay-at-home moms and wives of fishermen and laborers, and the empowered women who can now help provide income for the family, instead of being totally dependent on their husbands and children's support. Her daughter, Marina, is one of TREK’s volunteers.
