Seeking a solution to the tons of plastic waste produced and discarded in Ghana each year, Trashy Bags has built a thriving company around recycling abundant discarded plastic water pouches. Trashy Bags employs 60 full-time workers at their workshop in Accra, Ghana, to collect, wash and transform recycled plastic into reusable totes and other products that are used widely in Ghana and exported for use by eco-conscious citizens worldwide.

This useful tote is made from recycled water sachets and colorful patchwork fabric. The tote can be zipped away and tucked into a bag, car or backpack until needed. A great gift for friends & family!

Awesome reusable bags!!

These are just awesome! They are super sturdy and hold a ton of groceries! I’ve had people ask me where I got them! I tried to buy more and they are out of stock, guess I should have kept my mouth shut, lol! Seriously, these bags are great! They fold into a beautiful zippered pouch! Love them!
