PledgeMe campaign

On the 1st of September we launched our Pledgeme campaign to raise funds for the ongoing commercial production of cotton Wanaka bags to provide an affordable alternative to plastic bags.  Our goal was to raise $5,500 and we have SMASHED our target cracking the $6,000 mark a few days ago.

Our locally-made, Limited Edition ‘Wanaka Bags’ sold like hot cakes but we still have some great rewards available and home sewers can purchase a pre-cut pack to make their very own Wanaka Bag.

We are also offering two products which offer an alternative to disposable containers:

  1. The Plastic Bag Free Wanaka Karma Cup, a barista style glass coffee cup (to reduce our contribution to the one million take-away disposable cups that go into landfill each minute).
  2.  Stainless steel Eco Safe Plastic Bag Free Wanaka reusable drink bottles.

With the funds we have raised we will order 1,000 commercially made ‘Wanaka Bags’ to be sold in shops in Wanaka, offering an affordable alternative to disposable plastic bags.

Don’t miss out – pledge now!

Our fantastic rewards include a glass barista style coffee cup for a $25 pledge, the limited edition Wanaka bag and stainless steel eco bottle, both for $20 pledge.  Pledge more and get more for your bucks!
