The Uzwelo Bags Story

Real change is hard, and change in South Africa is no exception. Crime, poverty, corruption, litter, poaching, old-school mindsets… The need for change is everywhere but maybe one of the reasons it isn’t happening fast enough is because we don’t always believe we can help. Uzwelo and Expand a Sign decided to take matters into their own hands by partnering with everyday local heroes to provide a range of bags that are not only functional and stylish, but change lives…
