The Junk Wave makes gorgeous hand bags woven from recycled plastic food packets
The Junk Wave crafts and sells one of a kind handbags made from recycled food packaging. Our material comes from street and beach clean-ups and from friends and family who give to us. Every piece of plastic used in the bags is saved from entering landfill or ocean. Each bag represents a huge environmental saving.
A self-funded community project of empowerment and up-skilling, Megan Bayliss of The Junk Wave works with groups of women, many Indigenous and many with barriers to full participation in community life, to produce beautiful designer bags that sell the world over.
The Junk Wave is a business with a sustainable 3P (People, Planet and Profit) business model. We are fair and we believe in helping others. The money from bag sales divides between the women artisans and the organisations that host bag making workshops. But most importantly, part of the sale of the bag supports other community programs that look after people in their own communities and the social and physical environment of those people.
