MYOMY – My Paper Bag Baby
Buy a bag, change a life
The Dutch bag brand MYOMY launched My Paper Bag Baby in December 2015, a unisex diaper bag that can also be used as a hand or travel bag. For every bag sold, MYOMY donates an amount to Plan Netherlands that makes it possible for a baby in India to get a birth certificate.
The diaper bags are made by hand from sustainably tanned leather in a fair-trade certified workshop in India. From their long history of working mainly in India, MYOMY became aware of the country’s needs.
With My Paper Bag Baby, a partnership with Plan International to improve the lives of babies in India was obvious.
Birth certificates in India
In India, 230 million children under the age of five have not had their births registered. This makes it more difficult for them to access health care and education, and increases the risk of abuse, exploitation and discrimination. A birth certificate gives newborns more chance of a better life. Plan Netherlands has been committed to this aim for years.
MYOMY is a Dutch bag brand that produces and sells sustainable, fair trade leather bags and accessories. Founded in 2007 with the aim of making the world a little better, MYOMY’s products are sold online and in more than 200 stores in the Netherlands and abroad.
