Notabag Tote joins the ranks of Notabag products, made from lightweight recycled plastic and compact enough to store in your car, backpack or purse.
Never be without a bag for toting groceries, clothing, craft supplies or anything else you find a need for. Notabag Totes fold down into themselves, measuring a small 14 by 11 centimeters. When unpacked, the tote measures 39 centimeters in width and 32.5 centimeters in height without the handles. Furthermore, endless reusability means little waste compared to the alternative of single-use plastic and paper shopping bags.
Specifically, the Notabag Tote is made from post-consumer plastic bottles. Each bag diverts 10 plastic bottles from the landfill. The resulting material is strong and water-resistant, yet lightweight and flexible enough to stuff anywhere.
The Notabag Tote is the younger sibling to the previously released Notabag Original, which is a combination bag and backpack created with the needs of bike commuters in mind. It also folds down into its own pocket for storage, and unfolds to provide a shopping bag you can throw over your shoulders for the ride home. The company also offers a Notabag Duffle for use as a weekender, gym or overnight bag.
A close relationship with the production facility means the same hands have been making Notabag products since 2016. And they have gotten to know the product so they can employ maximum efficiency and cut-off waste reduction. All bags are produced in small, family-owned factories in China. Additionally, Notabag Founder Adnan visits the factories to ensure workers are treated fairly.
“The production team there ensures ethical working conditions with a living wage, fair working hours, holidays and nutritious meals,” reported Notabag. “They also look at the female-male ratio, applying corrective discrimination and intentionally making management opportunities available to women.”
Lastly, Notabag is a proud participant in 1% for the Planet, an organization working to protect the environment.
