Bag Abruzzo! Don’t Let it Burn

Bag Abruzzo! Don't Let it Burn 2023

To Bag Something
Something one particularly prefers, desires, enjoys, or cares about

Last year we created our ‘Don’t Let it Burn’ calendar using the wonderful imagery provided by our ever-growing community, do join if you haven’t yet it’s free! This year we’ve decided to work on our sustainability and are creating some eco-friendly cotton bags that can be slipped into Christmas stockings or  used as a gift to oneself!  They fold up and can be popped into your hand or man bag and used daily in place of plastic bags.

Our Land’s Summer Thirst is no Longer Quenched by Rain

Each bag tells a story about Abruzzo, which is always a great conversation opener and means to promote our favourite region. Mindful of the rights of imagery that we can and can’t use Team Life in Abruzzo has picked 4 of Estella Canziani’s illustrations to use on them depicting a mountain town, a shepherd, Saint Domenico (to who the snake festival in Cocullo is dedicated to) and peperoncini.   Each bag is printed locally to your address or to who you are sending the bag to as a gift which means less carbon and it means you don’t pay expensive international shipping or import duty! Every bag purchased means that someone has read about our ‘Don’t Let it Burn’ campaign, highlighting the increasing numbers of wildfires in the region and how our land’s summer thirst is not quenched by the usual old rain pattern.

If you are an artist or photographer and would like to help us create stories about our favourite Italian region and use one of your photos or illustrations, do get in touch!
