It all began when I forgot my reusable shopping bag.
I needed two things from the supermarket, and came out with ten. With only a cute little purse to hold them all (or not, in my case)…
And why is it always the fruit you drop on your juggle back to the car? (Splat.)
I decided I needed an alternative. A reusable bag that could fit my shopping - but also my life.
Something practical, but also stylish. Something that wasn’t just another thing to buy, but part of the solution to our environmental crisis. And it had to be so beautiful you’d want to use it all the time.
So I designed the original C.O.O.P sustainable tote. An eco bag for every day.
What I love about this tote is that it actually nudges you to reduce your reliance on single use plastic.
You have pockets for your produce bags, reusable coffee cup and water bottle, plus more.
And at the same time, because it’s made of recycled materials, you’re helping take plastic out of our waste stream.
But the story doesn’t end there.
Waste not. Want, yes.
The C.O.O.P range has grown. We now make a sustainable crossbody bag, as well as the original sustainable tote.
Every bag is designed to be circular. That means when you’re done with them, you can send them back to us for repair or recycling. Which means more waste that avoids landfill.
It’s a win-win, basically. And it’s just the beginning.
