Simple, practical and eco-friendly, this recycled wash bag is perfect for storing your toiletries or keeping them safe while travelling. The wash bag is hand made by fairly paid artisans in Malawi using waste bicycle inner tube, so it’s great for the planet and people. The bag is unlined and has a stitched carry handle along with a sturdy full length zip.
Cycle for Good is committed to helping to end poverty in one of the poorest countries in the World. The company currently employs 10 Malawian tailors full time who are paid a fair wage for their skilled work. The good wage allows the workers to support their families without any charity donations or handouts. Profits from sales are used to fun childcare, education and non-profit social enterprises in Malawi.
Some of the recycled inner tubes have manufacturers writing or the odd puncture repair patch meaning no two wash bags will ever be identical.

About Cycle of Good
Cycle of good currently employ 33 Malawian tailors full time, but with ambitions to grow this to a team of 100, they earn a good wage and can support their families, without any charity donations or handouts.
They collect waste inner tubes and other materials saved from landfill, ship them in containers filled with donated bicycles, to Malawi where tailors carefully craft what was waste into useful and beautiful items.
Their ethos is to value people, their team and customers, and treat them fairly.
To value resources by reducing waste, recycling wherever possible and care for our environment by being frugal in the way they work.
Be creative yet practical in their innovations, only making useful products you need, designed to last a lifetime.
Situated in Chilomoni Township, Malawi, the enterprises together employ 500 people who have trained and worked to create businesses that fund a vital children’s centre.
The centre provides early years care and family support to around 2000 vulnerable children at any one time. It’s a quiet revolution of skills building and economic growth in a country with no welfare state: if you don’t earn, you don’t eat.
What’s even better is that many of the enterprises are part of a circular economy; reusing unwanted or waste products from the UK and turning them into profit, shipping by sea in shared container space and using plastic free packaging on all items.
