WHAT IS EVERYTHING BAGS INC.
Everything Bags Inc. is owned by Neha, a wife and a mother. At Everything Bags Inc., we want to create a movement towards a more sustainable and environmentally friendly lifestyle by changing the way the world uses bags every day. Our dream is to help the environment through our biodegradable and naturally organic jute bags.
We deeply desire to be a catalyst of change for shifting the mindset towards using sustainable and environmentally friendly products. A simple shift in how consumers think about bags can lead to a profound impact on the environment for generations to come. Although our bags have a serious mission, the designs and colors of our eco-friendly bags are playful and fun.
FEMALE EMPOWERMENT & FAMILY HERITAGE
We are rooted in female empowerment and family heritage.
Neha wanted to develop a company that spoke to what’s most important to her: social responsibility in protecting the environment along with preserving her heritage. Like Jute, Neha is strong and watchful of her carbon footprint. She has created a company that is fully invested in helping change the world one bag at a time.
Our bags are made of Jute, which is grown mostly in Neha’s home country in India. The climate conditions allow the plant to thrive. Creating a fun and sustainable product was important, but there is an even deeper connection because this plant is grown so close to the owner’s home.
SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY & ELEVATED DESIGNS
Making a difference in the world is our priority. We want to accomplish this by designing eco-friendly bags that move and excite people.
Americans use more than 100 billion plastic bags each year, more than 300 bags per person. The manufacturing process for plastic bags takes a huge toll on the environment. The process of recycling these products is costly, timely and complicated. Everything Bags Inc. creates sustainable, reusable bags that provide long-term value for both customers and the environment.
Social responsibility is serious business, but our bags are pure fun. Everything Bags are flirty and whimsical. They’re playful. The appeal of the bag goes beyond being biodegradable or naturally organic. We want to make a difference one fun bag at a time.
Like Everything Bags, Jute gives back to the Earth and does as little harm as possible in the process.
Jute (also known as Burlap) is becoming known worldwide as a premier material for creating all kinds of eco-friendly products. This material is special for many reasons. For one, it is one of the rare materials that are naturally organic, reusable, recyclable, sustainable and biodegradable. Secondly, the carbon footprint of Jute is very low. Jute has natural UV protection that grows without the use of fertilizers and pesticides. Jute isn’t simply a material that limits its carbon footprint. It is a material that gives back to the earth. The crop cycle is fairly short. Because of the crop’s heavy reliance on rainfall, harvesting the crop actually enhances the soil. This allows other crops, or more Jute to grow and flourish in the same area.
