We are privileged to feature the New York City and Nolita Market Bag, exclusively sold in-store at Apolis Community Centre. This is one of our 221 City Series Market Bags, connecting regional retailers with our global advocacy and helping to create consistent employment for artisans in rural Bangladesh (Watch: Bangladesh Co-op).
Following the success of our first citywide market bag giveaway in San Francisco, second in Seattle and third in Venice, we handpicked six local shops to introduce our fourth experiment of a citywide market bag giveaway in New York City. Follow Apolis' Instagram for more details on New York's giveaway, August 16th only. For the next 24-hours check out our Instagram story for clues on all six locations.
