PACKAGING PARTNER: OPORAJEO

Dear Foodies,

We want to take a minute to talk about our partner, OPORAJEO, and the beautiful bright green bags they make.

OPORAJEO – “INVINCIBLE” in bangla – is a social business that owned and operated by survivors of the Rana Plaza disaster.  These women and men produce jute and textile bags and garments in a safe, well-lit, one-story factory, and are given access to resources to help them through their rehabilitation.

OPORAJEO is owned by its employees.  Profits from sales are used to pay salaries, build and run a school and clinic for the children of employees, and pay for healthcare.  They make bags for DIRECT FRESH, The Tripty Project, and other companies, and are excited to expand their social business to exports as well.
