The women make superb bags, brief cases and other products by collection and upcycling used plastic juice packs from hospitals and schools. Currently eleven women are earning a salary through the WoW bags project, which also helps to ensure second level school completion by their children.

The talk was part of a short visit hosted by Maynooth Green Campus to renew links with Helen and to support and learn from the WoW bags experience on campus more generally.
