It sounded kind of funny when two South African Childhood friends registered a business without a business idea though they had in mind to do great things. Today the company founded by Thato Kgatlhanye and Rea Ngwane has become a social enterprise that uses plastic bags to make reflective school bags which turn into lights when the sun goes down, enabling children from homes without electricity to study after dark and be visible to traffic as they walk to and from school.
Repurpose Schoolbags came to us, we worked on it tirelessly.” Repurpose Schoolbags is an environmentally-friendly innovation made from ‘upcycled’ plastic shopping bags. The bags have built-in solar technology that charges up during the day and transforms into a light at night. The initiative targets school children in underprivileged communities and looks at addressing a number of problems.
The bags allow pupils to study after dark in homes without electricity. The bags are also designed with reflective material, so that children are visible to traffic during their walk to and from school.
The production of Repurpose Schoolbags also involves the collection and recycling of plastic bags that typically litter the South African landscape.

Wow. This is so cool. They carry the bag during the day to school and are charging the cells at the same time. At night, they can use it to study. Brilliant idea!
