At Bag-all, we are constantly trying to improve our impact on the planet. After all, that has been the main purpose of our brand since the very beginning. When Bag-all was started, by Jennifer Jansch, she had one goal in mind -- to build a business that had a positive impact on the environment with the concept or reuse. Our first product was the reusable fabric gift bags. At the end of the day, it all comes down to the small daily choices.
Just think about it: if you reuse a water bottle a new one does not need to be produced and the bottle you are reusing does not become garbage. Reusing is one of the best things we can do for the environment and absolutely everyone can do it as it also is for free! It is a win, win all around.
We know that it is impossible to be perfect, and that all of us cannot change all of our ways. However, we do believe that although one cannot do everything, everyone can do something. By making conscious choices and trying to keep reuse at the top of your mind we guarantee that we together can get very far towards a more sustainable future.
Thank you for helping us help the planet, it means the World to us! 🌎
The Bag-all Team
The main purpose behind all of our products is reuse. Our very first product was a gift bag, created to reduce the toxic garbage that gift wrapping paper leaves behind. By reusing a product for years and years to come, negative impacts due to manufacturing, recycling, and waste management are reduced.
Most of our products are made from 100% natural cotton, and all of them can be reused over and over again. We are proud to offer products that are planet friendly, without compromising on style or quality. Read more HERE
We are constantly working on making our manufacturing processes as planet friendly as possible, and we are always interested in new and improved methods. At this point, we are proud to announce that all of our prints are printed with a water-based ink that is non-toxic and environmentally friendly.
We are also beyond excited about our new grosgrain ribbons, that are made from 100% recycled PET bottles. By using ribbons made from recycled PET bottles, we are contributing to a cleaner planet and a healthier wildlife. Read more HERE
Our stores reuse all cardboard boxes sent to us for our own outgoing shipments. This both limits waste management of old boxes and reduces impacts related to recycling. Also, we no longer offer disposable bags with a store purchase. Instead, we offer reusable totes at a very low price.
Fun fact: Our stores are decorated with vintage furniture found at flea markets. Across our brand, we truly believe in reusing and waste reducing in all areas. Sustainability can always co-exist with style and quality.
The latest addition to our sustainability efforts is to give back to the planet by planting a tree for every sold monogram. With some help from our friends at OneTreePlanted.org, your monograms will not only impact your bag's design, but also the lives of future generations.
Together, we can make a difference.We believe that helping the planet should be easy, fun, and something that everyone can participate in. To kick-off this project, we started off by donating 3000 trees, divided between the Amazonas and Indonesia. Read more HERE
Giving back is one of the most important things to us here at Bag-all. Whether it’s giving back to the planet, the community, or to a fellow human in need. For a few years, we have been donating money to an organization that we feel very passionate about. It’s called Kiva, and its mission is to help entrepreneurs in poor areas across the world to start, or advance, their own businesses by giving them micro loans. By lending business funds to people in need, they are given a chance to start something of their own, something that matters and that will provide life-long support for them, their families and their local communities.
So far, Bag-all has lent over $6,000 to female entrepreneurs in 46 countries. We have made a total of 219 loans, and we will continue to support women for many years to come. If you want to read more about it, check out our Journal HERE. If you want to join our effort, please attribute your loan to Team Bag-all on Kivas website. It would truly mean the World to us!
