The ‘goedzak’ is an eye-catching, transparent zip lock waste bag for items that are still useable. The bag goes on the street and can be retrieved, so usable items are given a chance to a second life. The ‘goedzak’ is a straightforward introduction to sustainability. The bag is designed by Waarmakers, an agency creating designs that bring about a positive social impact, designs that materialise an ideology and trigger specific human behaviour. ‘We like stuff, but we like people better.’
The word goedzak means ‘softhearted person’, and combines the Dutch words for “good” and “bag”. Just my alley this simple, sustainable design with that sweet touch in the products name.
