Princesshay Exeter – Banner Bags

Ever wondered what happens to the huge vinyl banners that shopping centres use to advertise events throughout the year? Princesshay Exeter send them to us so we can make these beautiful Banner Bags – it’s part of their “We Can Do More” sustainability initiative which focuses on working together to meet Exeter’s #NetZero 2030 goal.  The bags are then given by Princesshay to St Petrock’s, a local homelessness charity to help raise much needed funds.
