Bestselling eco-friendly bags


1) Cotton shopper bag

You really can’t go wrong with this trending cotton shopper. It’s eco-friendly with a great branding area, plus it’s one of our special fast-track items (meaning you’ll get it super speedily). 


2) Seabrook 5oz recycled cotton tote94-14869_red

The story behind this bag is awesome! No wonder it’s a bestseller this year. The fabric used to manufacture it is 60% recycled blended with 40% rPET polyester, which is a recycled fabric made from plastic bottles! You’d literally be carrying your water bottle in an old bottle (but… it’s a bag). Mindblowing.

It’s pretty common to be able to recycle your notebook. Just throw it in the paper bin and you’re done, right? Wrong! Some notebooks can’t be recycled due to their cover, or any fixtures or fittings. With pens, it’s even more difficult when it comes to recycling. That’s why we love this notebook and pen combo made from recycled paper and biodegradable plastic parts. Just remove the ink from the pen and voila! Completely recyclable.

Skittles are the tastiest of the rainbows by far! We love these midi plastic-free eco pots filled with Skittles - for a rainbow, you can snack on. And, as these pots are made from plant-based materials rather than plastic, they can be disposed of in commercial food waste recycling or compost.

Ocean Bottle's award-winning flawless design makes it the perfect companion to avoid single-use plastic every day, forever.

  • It keeps your hot liquids hot and your cold, cold, maintaining the integrity of your favourite beverage for longer. 

And for every Ocean Bottle you purchase, 11.4kg of plastic (the equivalent of 1,000 plastic bottles) will be collected, sorted, and recycled!

The Bobby Hero backpack will give you peace of mind when travelling with your most prized possessions.
