Vendor Spotlight: Buy Rice Back
Buy Rice Back is a social enterprise from My Name Is Kumar Foundation. They take colourful, Indian rice sacks from the local area and upcycle them into distinctive, unique tote bags and accessories. The bags are made by the local tailor Karthick, who is paid a fair wage for his work and each bag comes with a label explaining how your purchase has made a difference.
The money generated from the purchase of a single bag can make 148 meals of rice for the children and the foundation seeks to send as many as possible to the best private school in the city of Chengalpattu, in the hopes of breaking the cycle of poverty.
