Repurpose School Bags 

Repurpose School Bags are created out of recycled plastic bags, fused together for strength, and fitted with a solar device that plugs into a Consol light jar. By day it is a school bag, and by night it turns into a light to read and do homework.

This was a design for social impact workshop as the University of Johannesburg 4th year Industrial Design students came through to tackle certain design problems facing Repurpose School Bags.

The students, in collaboration with the fabricators of the bags, worked to solve certain design restrictions and come up with innovative solutions for their problems.
