DID YOU KNOW...
1- The ‘seventh continent’ forms a bunch of plastic micro particles in the Pacific Ocean equivalent to 6 times the land area of France, being a tremendous hazard for animals and humans. According to 2011 research, the Mediterranean Sea was also littered with 250.000 millions of small plastic pieces in the sea bed and an additional 500 tonnes of plastic waste were floating
2- Each person in Catalonia uses an average of 179 plastic bags every year, which means 26 million plastic bags per week in the whole of Catalonia.
3- An average plastic bag takes two seconds to make, is used for roughly 20 minutes and takes up to 200 years to degrade naturally.
4- Incineration of plastics produces dangerous toxins which we all breathe.
5- Due to its high environmental impact, France has banned single use plastic bags since 2016, including ‘bio-degradable’ ones.
Count the number of plastic bags or paper bags that you are using every week, whether you or the seller pays for them. And specially work out how much they cost to the environment...
Start using the reusable fabric bags from EL FLAMENC and forget filling your garbage with tonnes and tonnes of waste. The more you are using them, the more you are contributing to protection of the environment. Keep in mind that they are such good quality, they will last many years!
Then you should know that EL FLAMENC bags are being made very nearby, in Girona. EL FLAMENC has searched for all the materials, one by one, and the Fundació Ramon Noguera has tailored it in its workshop, where people with learning disabilities work. You will see, they are done with a lot of care...
Do not worry. EL FLAMENC bags are all made from organic cotton. And when we say ALL we mean EVERYTHING: the label, the string, the ribbon... even the thread! And the fabric, of course. Everything OCCGuarantee and GOTS.

Pillows and cushions, with their pillowcases and cushion covers, are made with 100% organic cotton, from the stuffing to the fabric. So they do not contain toxic substances endangering the health of the ones who use them.
