Did you know that there are more slaves today than ever before in history? And that 75%-80% is for sex? When I researched human/sex trafficking, I was sick to my stomach. Girls as young as six are being victimized and sold around for sex by their pimps. My emotions were teetering back and forth between sorrow and anger. How could this be happening in our “supposedly” civil world?
As a young woman who has grown up in the times where the word “rape” is as common as the word “love”, my heart goes out to these women. Even in the US, sex trafficking exists. Unfortunately, our justice system looks more down on drug abusers than child molesters/rapists. Go figure, huh? Seems like they sure have their priorities in check. Our justice system is FAILING our youth. -sigh- (Sorry for ranting, but this REALLY struck a cord with me)
Lusso Bags was started by a frequent traveler named Nicole Lombardo. In the beginning, Lusso Bags were designed to keep shoes separate during travel…and to keep clothes clean. She noticed how versatile Lusso Bags were, and her and her husband soon used them for more than just shoes. They were then used to pack lingerie, accessories, belts, bathing suits and a lot more!
Lusso Bags is more than just super cute bags. They help out women all over the globe to escape the sex trafficking life. With every purchase, a woman’s journey to freedom becomes more and more attainable. In Kolkata, India…every five bags equals a a day of honest wages. Lusso Bags donates 5% of each and every bag to help stock human/sex trafficking. The thought that I can purchase some of these bags and help out women in need truly touches my heart. Lusso Bags is one of those few companies that I feel emotionally involved in.
I recently was sent the Ms.Bird bag to review, which was made by women in India that left the sex trade. I plan on going to Florida in the summer, and with Lusso Bags I can keep my shoes away from my clothes. Clothes with dirt on them? No, not a chance.
Even though I’m not traveling anywhere anytime soon, I did test it out with my lingerie. All of my bras and panties were able to fit in this bag! Granted, I don’t have a ridiculous collection to begin with, but there’s a good amount of room in the Ms.Bird bag! It is also machine washable and can be hung to dry. So easy to wash! It also never loses it’s texture.
The Ms.Bird bag is 100% cotton muslin and feels wonderful. It measures 10″ x 16″ and is closed off with a cotton drawstring.
You can purchase the Ms.Bird bag for $15 via Lusso Bags’ website. Remember, 5% of the sale is donated to the women who have left the sex trade!!
