The ChicoBag mission is to help humanity bag the single-use habit: the wasteful, throw-away habit that overflows our landfills and clogs our oceans. They do this by advocating for waste reduction and designing the highest quality, longest lasting reusable bags. This commitment to the preservation of the environment also has our fellow B Corp Company named Best for the World Environment by B Corps for the 2nd year in a row!
ChicoBag founder Andy Keller was inspired to stop using single use bags in 2004 after a trip to drop off yard waste at his nearby landfill. What he noticed at the landfill and on the drive afterward was the prevalence of plastic bags in our environment “blowing around like tumbleweeds.” He then purchased a second-hand sewing machine to begin creating what is now the first reusable ChicoBag.
