Description

Our carry clutches are designed for you to hold your essential low waste items in each day in one easy spot. Head out with them on the run or pop them in your bag.

There’s enough room in here for your straws, cutlery, numerous produce bags, a food pocket or two and more. We’d love to see what you fill yours up with!

They’re also great for going out, popping in your keys, phone, cards, toiletries and a snack. Or pop in your kindle, USB sticks, hard-drive, travel mouse, a little notebook and your stationery supplies for meetings, the office or your business. They pair beautifully as a clutch heading out.

They are handmade at our little centre in Cambodia from recycled cottons and linens (redirected from landfill) and use our 100% pure hemp canvas to line the inside.

Keep your items in one place and you’ll never need to reach for the plastic!

Each day plastics flow all around you. Plastic forks and spoons with your lunch at work. Plastic bags when you get the groceries. Little thin plastic bags to carry your fruits, nuts or herbs. Plastic straws to stick into your drinks. And on and on and on.

By purchasing this product you are reducing major plastic waste, supporting our education and research across the world, providing jobs to vulnerable women in Cambodia in our own little product centre, and helping to support environmentalism & education to kids and communities in Cambodia.

These bags are designed to last for years but at end of life, this product can simply be returned to the ground in compost or buried.

Our carry pouches are made at our own little centre supporting ethical labor and a happy workplace in rural Cambodia.

Fabric
Our carry pouches are made from recycled linens (neutrals) and recycled cottons (patterns). Our fabric is redirected from landfill in order to reduce our environmental impact. Instead of using new (virgin) materials, we collect fabrics that would otherwise have been burned or found their way to landfill. As cottons (whether organic or conventional) take an enormous amount of resources to produce we prefer to use fabrics that are already in existence and would have gone to waste. These fabrics exist from an over-supply to businesses, wrong orders, unused due to changes etc. We collect these and use them for our products.

Canvas Hemp Lining
Our lining for this carry pouch is made from 100% pure, sustainable hemp canvas from a small farm in Thailand. Hemp is the most eco-friendly fabric.

Label
Our labels were made from the off-cuts we save whilst cutting our products so you may receive a product with this. We have since transitioned to 100% cotton labels and now use those off-cuts for other products to retain zero waste.

Included in this item is:

1 x essentials carry pouch
1 x eco-friendly product package

This is an easy care product. For extra care, handwash this product. You can also wash this bag in your washing machine on a gentle cycle. There may be some small shrinkage from the first wash.

All of our packaging is thoughtful and plastic free. Where packages require padding, we use post-consumer, recycled shredded paper. Our tissue paper is custom designed and uses vegetable ink (rather than standard petroleum-based ink). It is acid, lignin and sulfur free and is FSC certified (Forest Stewardship Council for sustainable forestry). Please reuse it where possible. Our mailers and envelopes are made from recycled materials. Our thank you cards are made from 100% recycled cotton t-shirts. We use paper tape for any additional closures. Please compost and recycle our packaging as appropriate.

At end of life, please remove the little snap-to-close metal element. The rest of the pouch is natural fabric (cotton, linen and hemp) so can be cut into pieces and buried in soil or added to your compost.
