Zooba and UpFuse Create a Bag to Save Egypt's Environment

Egyptian stores often overuse plastic bags without considering the damage they do to the environment. Looking to do their part in cleaning up Egypt is none other than beloved 'baladi chic' restaurant Zooba, who teamed up with UpFuse to create an everyday bag made of upcycled plastic bags.

Everyone wants to see a cleaner Egypt, but for that to happen it will require all of its citizens to do their part. On a mission to reduce the amount of plastic bags that end up littering the streets and garbage dumps, Zooba and UpFuse have created a locally-designed multi-purpose forever bag using upcycled plastic bags.

Designed with Cairo in mind, this multi-functional and environmentally responsible bag can be used as a backpack, tote bag, or even a grocery bag that eliminates the use of any plastic bags. Each bag is made of at least 30 upcycled plastic bags and is labelled with an environmentally friendly message spreading awareness that we each need to do our part in cleaning up Egypt.
