It feels so good to write and discuss about great business ideas with social conscience. This time it’s Nature Bag -- a fashionable and reusable sustainable organic bag with compact, lightweight and minimalistic features.

At the heart of this small business and what makes it so distinct from the rest of the world is their so-called Nature Bag Khmu/Lao Poverty Reduction Project -- all their activities that link the Khmu tribe of Northern Laos to the rest of the world. The economic foundation of these linkages is marketing the Khmu reusable organic bag.

In case you don’t know the Khmu are the indigenous people of Northern Laos. Their rich culture dates back thousands of years. Some scholars believe it to be 5,000 years old, which would make it among the most enduring.

Some Khmu continue to live at a subsistence level, searching the forests for their basic needs — food, medicine and fiber for clothing and shelter to protect from environmental elements. Many have no monetary income. Their bags sold in Nature Bag have been essential to their survival allowing for the gathering of essentials.
