The BIDBI Bee

The BIDBI Bee is written by Julia Gash, the founder and CEO of BIDBI, with guest bloggers from inside and outside the BIDBI hive.  In her blog, Julia gives a behind the scenes look at eco-bag production in the BIDBI engine room, speaks out on topical issues and celebrates her favourite bag art.  She waves the flag for eco-ethical business and the tote as a wonderful, creative medium.
