The eco-friendly bags feature adorable images of puppies and kittens and are available at select Pick n Pay stores nationwide for R 30 each.
A percentage of the proceeds from the sale of the bags will go to Project 18, helping the NPO to purchase more than 10,000 kg (10 tonnes) of animal feed.
Project 18 was founded by Bake Pittaway, 20, a former volunteer with the National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) in Cape Town.
The NPO supports approximately 14 animal shelters and 3,500 animals, providing them with much needed food, pet care, vaccinations and sterilizations.
Pittaway founded Project 18 two years ago to celebrate its 18th birthday. “I didn’t want to celebrate the typical way people do when they come of age,” he said.
“So I decided to use the money my family and friends gave me to help support local charities.”
Pick n Pay Sustainability Manager Andre Nel said they were extremely proud to have the opportunity to partner with the work Project 18 is doing in terms of animal welfare, a cause close to their hearts. to many people.
