Disposable plastic grocery bags and plastic produce bags are major contributors to a planet wide plastic problem. Not only are these devastating our environment, who wants to use cheap plastic bags that rip apart when you put too much in them?!

Reusable bags have been available for some time now, however many of them are made from plastic and synthetic materials. Although they are reusable, at some point they will end up in our landfills and will not break down.

We offer the following reusable bags both online and at retailers around the world:

Our reusable bags are created using a variety of materials including:

Upcycled fabric

Organic cotton

Linen

Mesh

Muslin

Canvas

Washable paper

Our materials vary. Our upcycled cotton is thrifted from within our community at organizations that usually give back to charities. It's a double whammy, they donate to charities and we donate to charities!

Our GOTS certified organic cotton which includes our mesh, muslin, and canvas is sourced from a family owned and operated factory in India that follows Max Havelaar fair trade guidelines. We ensure all of our suppliers operate ethically, and for this reason we are happy to support them.

Easy as pie, throw them in the washer with an eco friendly laundry detergent (preferably unscented) and a splash of vinegar in your rinse (if you want). Hand washing is another good option.

Lay flat to air dry, or toss them in the dryer on a low-medium heat setting.
