Aaaaand they’re out!! Ladies and gents, we present to you our fabric shopping bag that folds up into a small pouch so that it can ALWAYS be with you ready for use wherever you go. This product is 100% financed and supported by Seoudi Supermarket. Yup, you read that correctly! These incredibly nice people completely encouraged and welcomed the idea and completely adopted it AND agreed for it to be a zero-profit project! It was so mind-shifting to witness this kind of mindfulness at that level of success. 💚 So yes!!! Yalla! We’re starting off in only in the 2 branches in Maadi and if it goes well we’re going to fabric bag the whole city! #drumstickdesigns #seoudisupermarket #cairo #egypt #environment #livegreen #ecofriendly #totebag #arabic

This way, these fabric shopping bags can soon substitute plastic ones, if people are willing to cut down on their plastic use and go for the smarter, eco-friendlier choices.

The product is 100% financed and supported by Seoudi Supermarket, whereas they completely welcomed and encouraged the idea of adopting to it and agreed for this project to be a zero-profit one.

The fabric bags are only available in 2 branches in Maadi, but if it is off to a good start, they will soon ‘Fabric bag the whole city!

Our hope is that people’s attitude towards this idea, would be the same as Seoudi’s. And for them to accept this change, hopefully to be turned into a lifestyle.

The suspension comes in light of the rising numbers of Covid-19 cases among clergymen and churchgoers.

The Coptic Orthodox Church on Saturday released an official statement that says the suspension includes Sunday’s schools, meetings, services and masses, and that priests in each church are allowed one mass weekly with a minimal presence and a maximum of five deacons only.

As for funeral services, they’re allowed to be held but with the participation of only one priest and one deacon and of course the family of the deceased. However, the halls that are designated for mourning services will be closed until the improvement of current conditions.

For Baptism services, the maximum number allowed are four member of the baby’s family.

The statement added that study at institutes and educational centres will carry on but with a reduced maximum of 25%.

As for the dioceses, each bishop get to decide what is most suitable to the health situation in his diocese, in partnership with the congregation of priests.

We urge all worshipers to remain safe and adhere to all the precautionary measures needed.
