The Royal British Legion and Jutexpo Ltd have joined forces, working closely together for several years to develop what has now become an iconic series of ethically produced, reusable Poppy Bags.

JutexpoSince the partnership began, the official poppy Jute bags have raised £1 million for The Royal British Legion.

Jutexpo has produced 660,000 of the ethically-produced bags since the launch in 2011. The bags are sold through The Royal British Legion’s own Poppy Shop as well as Sainsbury’s.

Jutexpo is a UK market leader in Jute and Juco bags and their core principle is 'Beyond the bag' which focuses on integrity through ethical production, social responsibility, quality and trust.

Helen Rooney, Retail Marketing Manager for the Royal British Legion, said: “This iconic series of ethically produced, reusable jute poppy bags have provided a wonderful way for shoppers to make a donation whilst getting a strong, reusable shopping bag featuring the iconic poppy in return. The money goes back into the Legion to help our beneficiaries. The Legion is there throughout our beneficiaries’ entire lives to help them with funds in a crisis, recovery after injury or illness, moving on after the military and support to their families."

Jutexpo are proud to support The Royal British Legion and continue to work on maximising the money raised through the range of Poppy Jute Bags.
