(Karen Monson and Rod Simpson) started RARE BAGS in Tasmania in
background was social work and after burning out we decided we
wanted to focus on our true passion. In 2012 we taught our friend
Nick to make the bags as well, so all three of us make our RARE
passion is the planet and the whys and wherefores of what we (as
humans) are doing to it and all the other critters the planet
provides a home for.
extinction of specie,s we believe, is the greatest crime that
humanity has committed and hence we focus a lot on this issue.
We also do bags about what is happening to the oceans, to the
forests, animal cruelty issues, what is happening to cultural
diversity and to the human spirit by our degrading consumerism
culture. It is all interconnected, the reasons for one, are generally
the same for all things.
