Recycled Linen Tote Bags

$56.00AUD

Our generously sized recycled linen tote bags are ideal for the markets, bulk food shopping, the beach, picnics, the pool, storage for your baby items on the go and a whole lot more. They are double lined at the bottom to hold your heavy goods with ease and last for years. Instead of plastic buttons, or buttons that require additional shipping to get to us, we make our own coconut buttons at our little studio in Cambodia from coconuts that aren’t fit for our coconut bowls (these are empty shells discarded by the community). We also squeeze our own coconut oil that is applied to the buttons for a lovely finish.

You’ll be reducing the oil required for plastic, the environmental destruction, unethical labor practices 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 reducing plastic waste, not using new virgin materials which can contribute to 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 tote bags are made at our own little centre supporting ethical labor and a happy workplace in rural Cambodia.

Fabric
Our linen tote bags are made from recycled linens. 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. New materials take an enormous amount of resources to produce so 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.

Buttons
Our buttons are made from the discarded shells of coconuts. We handmake these and finish them off with our own pressed coconut oil made at our studio.

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 linen tote bag
1 x eco-friendly product package

This is an easy care product. Place this bag into your washing machine on a gentle, cold cycle. Hang to dry or lay flat to dry. Do not tumble dry. There may be some small shrinkage from the first wash. Your item comes with two spare buttons for each pocket which you can utilize if yours wear and tear or require replacing. You can also polish up the buttons every couple of months by dabbing a little natural oil (i.e. coconut, olive or jojoba) on them.

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 boxes or a reused option 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.

At end of life, the product can be cut up into pieces and buried or composted.
