Fundraising for Foodbanks

You will have seen that very soon, domestic gas and electricity bills will virtually double. This will have a massive impact on the finances of the most vulnerable in our society, and foodbanks will become even more vital in supporting these people.

Throughout the 2020/21 global pandemic and lockdowns, most of our fundraising efforts have been donated to Porch Boxes, a foodbank serving those in need in and around Bury. We plan to continue with these donations, and you can help.

JeaniusBags has never before held any kind of stock sale, but we’re about to make a huge exception, and all proceeds will be donated to Porch Boxes. While stock last, you can buy anything at all from stock at a whopping 20% discount*. So get thinking – do you have birthdays or anniversaries to plan for? Valentine’s Day is in February, Mothering Sunday will be with us in March, and if you’re really organised, Father’s Day is in June!

So have a browse or our handbags, cross-bodies, bohos, messengers, totes, backpacks, “occasion” bags, travel accessories, purses, wallets, and of course, our original denim collection.

Remember – all of our bags have been lovingly handcrafted from scratch, and every purchase will help the vital work of Porch Boxes Bury.

*P&P costs will still have to be passed on – we are unable to absorb those additional costs without impacting on our fundraising efforts – but local purchasers can of course collect for free. Sale ends 31 January 2022.

Father’s Day

Father’s Day falls on June 16 this year. Don’t be caught out – order his Man Bag now!

Does your dad do the grocery shopping? how about a denim shopping bag that will last forever and help save the planet?

Does your Dad carry his coins in one of those little plastic bags you get from banks? These pyramid coin purses will do the job!

Have you bought your Dad a bottle of something tasty but need some ethical gift-wrap? How about one of these?

If it’s Dad’s job to walk the dog, how about a bag specifically designed for the purpose, with room for a roll of poo-bags, doggy treats, keys and wallet:

Have Yourself an Eco Little Christmas

When I was little, Christmas morning – particularly unwrapping gifts – was a very orderly affair. We were under orders to carefully peel off the sellotape and leave the paper intact so that my mum could iron it and reuse it the following year.

How times have changed. These days more gifts are given, all are individually wrapped, and the paper is ripped off. The crumpled shred of torn paper are scrunched up and thrown on the wood-burner. After all, it can’t be recycled – the paper is full of metallics and plastics for the sheen, and to prevent accidental ripping before the Big Day.

This bothers me. Such a waste of natural resources, chemical printing processes, transport (to get the paper from the factories to the shops), our money, and our time in cutting, sticking and wrapping. And for what? To make a nice display under the Christmas tree, and keep the contents an eagerly anticipated secret.

There has to be a better way.

And now there is! Utterly reusable, these Christmas wrap gift bags will make your gifts look lovely under the tree and save you so much time and money. Take a look at the full range here.
