Proudly South African

August 3, 2011

Why should one by locally? There are so many answers to this question. If you buy a locally produced product you participate in job creation, poverty alleviation, growth of local economy while also being environmentally friendly. The Proudly South African campaign is an initiative, based on these perceptions, which brands companies and products that are at least 50% locally produced. By doing so, the Proudly South African campaign helps socially and environmentally aware consumers finding products and services with these qualities. Original T- Bag Designs is a member of the Proudly South African group; being a company that produces locally, using local material and work force. Last week Jill, Ane and I went to a Proudly South African conference. It was very interesting to meet other enterprises that have the same values and hopes as Original T- Bag Designs. Naturally, active networking between such companies is essential so to exchange knowledge, experiences and help each other out, so meetings such as this one is obviously important. Together I think all such businesses can create a huge difference in South Africa.
