Plastic bottles are bad for the earth and for your body: There are 60 billion single serving plastic bottles produced every year, and 80% of those are not recycled. Reusable plastic bottles have been linked with BPA, an endocrine disruptor that mimics estrogen. See our facts on water bottles for , and buy a SIGG bottle for peace of mind.

You can also reduce our petroleum dependency and its related environmental issues by eliminating plastic baggies with the Wrap-n-Mat; avoid the problems of lead in vinyl lunchboxes with Bazura Bags and Cool Totes; and avoid brown paper bags with canvas lunch bags. Read on!

Bazura BackpackBazura Backpack

These great, distinctive backpacks will help you stand out from the crowd (and find your backpack easily in a sea of generic packs). With extra strong zippers (2 outside, one in the center), two side pockets for phones or keys and with juice packet trim, and a large interior space, these are as functional as they are fun. Brighten up even a Monday (or a test day) with a Bazura backpack.

Bazura Bags is working with a women’s co-op in the Philippines that set up a Livelihood Project assisted by the local village council. With almost no capital, the women found a very clever way to support themselves.

Every day, children from the local schools collect over 50,000 used drink containers, called doy packs, then sell them to the co-op. The packs are sanitized and the women sew them together into attractive, durable bags.

We estimate that millions of these containers get thrown in the trash everyday in the Philippines. Until we find a way to recycle them, or stop using this material altogether, we would like to reuse as many empty drink containers as possible and, in the process, support fair trade.
