What's not to love about our Fold-Up Shopping Bags! Bright, colourful and reusable, these shopping bags are the perfect replacement for all the unnecessary plastic shopping bags we currently use. Our bags are able to be folded into a convenient carry pouch- very cool!

This year’s NAIDOC theme “Heal Country” calls for us to all continue to seek greater protections for Indigenous lands, waters, sacred sites and cultural heritage. Join us as we come together to recognise and protect First Nations Country and culture.

Story: Walu-ma-rra
Artist: Lani Balzan

Walu-ma-rra means to be a guardian, protect. This painting is very special to me. It has my totem maliyan (the wedgetail eagle) and represents our beautiful country and the importance of protection.

The wedgetail eagle is very significant and it brings healing to our people and has an important specific meaning for many of our people. The strength and beauty the wedgetail eagle represent makes it perfect for this design.

In the painting the maliyan represents the guardian of our land. This year's NAIDOC theme “Heal Country” calls for all of us to continue to seek better protection for our land, our waters, sacred sites and our cultural traditions from exploitation, desecration and destruction.

Since colonisation so much has impacted our land, animals and our culture. Land clearing, urban development, change in traditional fire management, farming and pollution to name a few. These all have a significant impact on our ecosystems through destruction of our native plants and animals.

We have lost so much already and it is time we changed. Our land and animals are our culture and by having the land destroyed, our sacred sites will be gone forever. We can all work together as Australians to be guardians and protect our lands and culture.

Will leave the warehouse within 1-2 business days.

Knockout design

The only thing I don’t like is how difficult it is to put back in pouch after using!!! However it is a good bag to pop into my handbag so that I have a bag when needed!
