I’m back again on the BIDBI Bee!

As one of the Account Managers at BIBDI I am lucky enough to get to work with a wide range of customers using bags for a myriad of different projects. One of the standout orders for me last month was from Birley Spa Community Primary School who are based just up the road from us here in Sheffield.

We worked with the school on a project for their Eco-Week and every child in the school designed their own bag which we then printed for them. We absolutely loved seeing the creativity of all the different designs and think we’ve seen some designers of the future!

We also had a visit from members of the school eco-committee and myself and Alan gave them a tour of our office and eco-factory. The children saw their bags printed, spotted their favourite brands on our ‘won and done’ boards and then excelled at a fair-trade and ethically themed quiz. It was a draw between the boys and girls teams for quiz winner with both teams getting the correct answers to every question!

It was great to meet all the kids and to contribute to their eco-week. Now I can’t wait to see what they come up with for next year’s project.
