Cool Apolis market bags support women in Bangladesh + So Cal communities

You may have noticed people in various parts of Southern California carrying large, graphically stunning and otherwise cool burlap shopping bags with the names of a city or neighborhood featured in clean, white font on one side and the words "Apolis: Global Citizen" on the other.
 
My first bag featured the name of my hometown "Los Angeles." Now it is time for a second bag or a third. And there are lots of Southern California (and more) options from which to chose (see list below).

But the most important part of the story is this: It's not just about a cool and functional market bag. Apolis, the creator of the market bag and so much more, has teamed with 100 partners in 10 countries to create market bags for specific communities
 
In so doing, Apolis, its partners and its customers are helping to support the employment of the 21 women in Bangladesh who make the bags.
