Proud supporters of Destiny Rescue.
While I was on maternity leave with my second child, I watched a documentary on human trafficking. Just five minutes into the documentary, I was sobbing uncontrollably. It had such a profound and lasting impact on my soul. I couldn’t watch any more, those five minutes were so horrific, I literally jumped off the couch, went into our home office and registered The Swag trading name, purchased the URL, set up the company and started the patenting and trademarking process. It has always been my goal and passion to create a revenue stream to help with this global issue. I’m proud to announce that since the 1st July 2018 Swag Australia donates a portion of every product sold either direct or through our wholesalers.
Since 2011, Destiny Rescue have rescued over 3,300 children enslaved around the world, helped keep hundreds more from entering the sex trade through their various prevention programs, ensured justice for those who have been wronged, and raised awareness to untold numbers. Their five step approach to tackling this global issue is why we have chosen to partner with Destiny rescue. Here is a snapshot of the great work they’re doing;
1. RESCUE THE SEXUALLY EXPLOITED AND ENSLAVED
Destiny Rescue rescues children from red light districts, brothels and sexually abusive situations.
2. RESTORE THE ABUSED
Destiny Rescue provides rescued children the intensive care and love they need to recover from the traumatic effects of sexual abuse and sexual exploitation. We provide them medical help, counselling, schooling, vocational training and all daily needs required to be integrated back into society successfully. In addition, we provide a safe protective place for them to live, grow and experience unconditional love– a place where they can feel valued and esteemed; a place where they can be kids again.
3. PROTECT THE VULNERABLE
Destiny Rescue offers programs that help at-risk children and families reduce their children’s chances of being sold, lured or trafficked into the sex-trade.
4. EMPOWER THE POOR
Destiny Rescue believes in empowering the poor and giving them a hand up in life, not a handout. Our philosophy and goal is to help them become self-sustaining through one of our many assistance programs. Simply put, we don’t want to create a welfare system where children and families become dependent on our organisation, but rather have a chance to become profitable through hard work and common sense.
5. BE A VOICE FOR THE VOICELESS
Destiny Rescue is committed to being a voice for the sexually exploited, vulnerable and poor who, in most cases, can’t speak up for themselves. We believe everyone has a right to be heard, especially those crying out for justice. Many times they are overlooked or tossed aside by society, but we are determined to be their voice – motivating and inspiring influencers to get involved and make a difference in the lives of the voiceless.

FIVE STAR CUSTOMER RATINGS
I'm so impressed with my Swags. We recently went to New Zealand and left cucumbers in one of our bags for almost four weeks AND when we got home we chopped them up and used them in a salad. Needless to say, we're blown away by the results. We simply love our Swags!
I got the starter pack as a gift and I can't recommend it highly enough!!
I live in a rural location and only do occasional trips to town to stop up on groceries. Being a lover of vegetables I was constantly re-stocking to replace bendy carrots, limp lettuce and the rest of the sad, soggy and unappetising array clogging up my vegetable crisper. The Swag bags have completely changed my shopping habits, saved me heaps of money, educated me in better food storage methods and best of all, reduced wanton wastage. I have dim distant memories of my great grandmother using similar vegetable storage methods in the days of kerosene fridges and ice boxes, before modern refrigeration took hold. You have developed a fantastic product Peita and I salute you for the time and effort you have put in to its development. Wishing you every success in the future. I shall continue to recommend Swag bags far and wide.
I bought the starter kit a little while ago and I'll admit I was a bit nervous to try them out. But l finally got to them last weekend when I bought some bulk fruit and veggies. A week later the broccoli and carrots are still crisp and crunchy and the bunch of coriander I bought a week ago today looks like I bought it yesterday. (Pic in comments).. My strawberries are lasting much longer and my fridge is tidy and organised (read no more losing that zucchini to liquify in the bottom of the crisper. I'm wrapped.. .these bags are going to save me a fortune! Thanks
I have been using swag bag for a month now and LOVE IT. Small but surely a first step towards eliminating plastic.
Fantastic customer service and a very practical, well made product. Would recommend to others �
Pretty sure my celery has been in the bag for close to 2 weeks now and it's STILL CRUNCHY!!! Enough said!
Every day that passes that I get to use my fresh herbs, rather than throwing them out - as I usually would - I send a high five to The Swag. Not only are my herbs staying fresh for twice as long, the veggies are too. This is reducing the hassle of going shopping as often. I'm saving money and time. What a great invention. 5 stars!
Absolutely love my swag! Fruit and veg is healthy for weeks!!! It is the best investment!!
These have exceeded expectations! I highly recommend The Swag as my produce has stayed fresh and has lasted so much longer. Definitely value for money.
I love my swag bags they keep my fruit/veggies more fresher for longer definitely recommend it����
I love this product so much. My fruit and vegetables are so fresh, crisp and its so easy to use. Worth it for every house hold. I hate throwing away food and hasn't since I've got these bags.
I can't tell you how much I love this product. In Singapore, everything fresh spoils quickly because of the humidity, yes even in the fridge. I've had my Swags for just over 3 weeks now and parsley has remained very much alive and quite spritely after more than 10 days in the fridge, broccoli was still green and crisp after two weeks. My housekeeper loves them too. It makes it so much easier for her to work out what vegs we need to top up and so easy to find vegs and fruit in the fridge. I've just bought some for my Mum who I hope loves them as much as I do.
Loving The Swag, keeping vegetables so much fresher for longer.
Love, love, love my Swags. My fruit and vegetables are lasting so much longer, less wastage and no more plastic bags. I have used a similar product (containers) in the past but the Swags are far superior. It takes up less room and you don't have to separate the products. Do yourself a favour and grab a Swag.
I have been using my swag for over a month now and veggies are lasting double the time! I love it. Have always hated wasting food and creating more waste, I think I have found the answer.
This is a fantastic product. I have had mine for 4 weeks and I'm already saving money by not throwing out fruit and veg within days of buying! 5 stars isn't enough for this one! Absolutely love mine!!
The best way to keep fruit & veg fresher for longer! It's amazing how easy it is. I save money and no more soggy mouldy veges in the bottom of the fridge. This is genius!
I have been using this product for a month now and I am most impressed. My fruit and vegetables are keeping so much fresher for so much longer. eg. asparagus I experimented and put one lot in the swag and the other just in the crisper. I left both for 10 days and the one that was NOT in the swag was INEDIBLE and the one in The Swag was still really fresh. THAT REALLY IMPRESSED ME!!!
I have trialled my Swags for more than a month now and I can say with absolute confidence they are amazing. Our fruit and vegetables have lasted so much longer. It is very obvious with the colour, texture and taste. CONGRATULATIONS PIETA!!!! Great work����������I have trialled all of these and more.
I'm a new fan! LOVE how fresh and crisp my veggies remain, LoVE not using and throwing away plastic bags, and so much better than using plastic containers. Awesome gift too, for friends who've been looking for a new way to store their veggies. Even my husband is impressed 🙂 �� ha�
