Description

Our beautiful 100% pure hemp string bags are designed to work with you and are super useful. They’re strong and flexible allowing the bag to stretch as it fills; they could hold a whole lot!

They are made for filling up with groceries or shopping supplies at the markets or around town. They are lightweight, easily stored (you can stuff them nearly anywhere to remember on the go) and expand to carry your goods. They’re slowly and meticulously handmade from spun hemp fibers at our little centre in Cambodia. No machines!

Hemp is a strong, naturally antimicrobial material, that resists mold and mildew, absorbs a lot of C02 (carbon dioxide) whilst growing, grows much faster than cotton and flax, requires far less land to grow per comparative yield, uses significantly less water than cotton, softens over time, returns up to 70% of the nutrients back to the soil as it grows and doesn’t require harsh herbicides or pesticides. Our hemp is not blended with cottons (or nylons).

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.

In the next 60 seconds around the world, we will purchase about two million plastic bags (1). A trillion plastic bags are used globally each year. By using our string bags you have purchased a highly sustainable fabric that can be used for years and years. You’ll be reducing the oil required for plastic, the environmental destruction, unethical labor practises and transportation emissions and you’re helping to protect all the animals (especially birds, turtles and whales) that suffer and die from plastic bags. Just remember to bring these with you everywhere!

By purchasing this product you are also reducing major plastic waste and impacts on climate change, 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 hemp string bags are made at our own little centre supporting ethical labor and a happy workplace in rural Cambodia. We love spending a lot of time on the ground here.

Hemp Twine
Our string bags are made from 100% pure, sustainable hemp from a small farm in Thailand. Hemp is the most eco-friendly fabric and we do not blend it with cottons or synthetics. They are hand spun and not colored with chemicals and toxins.

Hemp Fabric
We use 100% hemp fabric at the top of our bags. The fabric is 100% pure, sustainable hemp from a small farm in Thailand. Hemp is the most eco-friendly fabric and we do not blend it with cottons or nylon.

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 100% hemp string bag
1 x eco-friendly swing tag with compostable label and 100% hemp twine

This is an easy care product. You can hand wash this bag for extra care or use carefully in your washing machine on a gentle, cold, slow cycle. There may be some small shrinkage from the first wash. Lay flat or hang to air dry.

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 100% recycled materials. Our thank you cards are made from 100% recycled cotton t-shirts. Our swing tags are made from card that can be recycled. Sleeves are made from 100% recycled stock. Labels are made from sugar cane waste and are compostable. We use paper tape for any additional closures. Please compost and recycle our packaging as appropriate.

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.

One style only as shown in the photos here.

Fill it up!

Hemp is really strong but the way these bags are made also lets them expand a lot; so you can stuff them with all your fresh produce.

Plastic free packaging

All of our packaging is plastic free. Your produce bags come in a minimally designed package which can be composted or recycled. Your item will either arrive in a recycled card box or eco-friendly mailer.
