Sizes may vary just slightly due to our off cuts.

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 produce 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 produce 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.

Fabric
Our produce bags are made from 100% pure, sustainable hemp from a small farm in Northern Thailand. Hemp is the most eco-friendly fabric and we do not blend it with cottons or nylon.

Drawstring
The drawstring of the bag is made from 100% hemp twine from the same place in Thailand. It is twisted at our small, ethical sewing centre to make the cord.

Label
Our labels were previously 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 the off-cuts for other products to retain zero waste.

Included in this item is:

1 x snack bag or bundle
1 x eco-friendly product package

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

We only use plastic-free packaging and ensure everything is eco-friendly and beautifully presented. Your item is provided inside a minimal, recycled card packaging box using post-consumer waste. Your item is shipped inside one of our custom boxes which can be recycled or composted and where required is kept protected with 100% post-consumer waste shredded paper (recycled or composted).

Where products are wrapped, our tissue paper is custom designed, eco-friendly printed with vegetable ink. The tissue paper is acid, lignin and sulfur free and FSC certified (Forest Stewardship Council to promote sustainable forestry).

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.

This item is designed to last for years but if it wears out or reaches end of life it can be cut up and buried in soil or added to your compost. It will biodegrade in landfill.

One standard hemp snack size bag is available for this product as seen in the photos.
