Massachusetts based eco-friendly firm Savorii is a great example of a company doing good for the planet and its people.
Savorii began under the name greenlifesavor in 2009. It was founded by friends united by the concept that fun, innovative, and eco-friendly products reflect the collaborative nature of the community.
Today the company crafts its green handbags from a variety of found materials. Its Boston Boat Bags are made from old sail canvas, while its Boston Symphony Satchels began life as old burlap coffee bean sacks. These bags and others in the collection are just as green inside too; each one is lined in upcycled materials.
Savorii's handbags are crafted by the poor and homeless citizens in its hometown of Lynn and surrounding neighborhoods. These artisans are given comprehensive training and paid a fair wage for their efforts. Savorii partners with vocational workshops and homeless shelters to foster these important community connections.
It also works with local artists, whose works are featured on Savorii's Hand Painted Bags collection. This initiative gives the artists valuable exposure.
Savorii also sells apparel items, homewares, artworks, and wedding accessories created with the same emphasis on sustainability and craftsmanship.
Savorii's products are available online through the label's website.
