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: Heal Country - Elements
Artist: Luke Mallie

In ancient times, Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islanders observed the sun, moon and stars to navigate the land. A deep understanding was nurtured through a symbiotic relationship with the cycles of nature, meaning our ancestors were able to predict seasonal changes, weather patterns, and be in sync with the native flora and fauna. The Milky Way shines bright with our ancestors and stories. We see the Dark Emu in our sky, which guides our laws and customs. First Australians recognise this science and know that we all have a responsibility to value this knowledge to heal Country and stay true to our treasured land.

While the ancient Greeks believed that there were four elements that everything was made up of Earth, Air, Fire and Water, it is the everlasting presence of spirit that brings strength and beauty in all that is around us. Understanding and believing the fullness of our cultural heritage is guided by the stars above, the land beneath our feet and the spirit all around us. The purity and health of the land and water is vital to sustainability and the healing of our nation. All Australians need to carry in their hearts the significance and value of our ancestors and reflect First Nations peoples cultural knowledge and understanding of Country.

“My inspiration for my artwork is my family, my Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and my tropical surroundings. I’m very influenced by pop culture, animation and modern design. I feel that my artwork is my gift to help others see the beauty of Aboriginal culture, appreciate Indigenous issues, and bring joy to people through colourful art and designs”
