The Market Bags emerged with a singular vision: eradicating single-use plastic bags. Originating from a weekly trip to a local farmers market in the summer of 2018, the founders noticed the increasing prevalence of reusable bags, many of which were still being manufactured overseas from unsustainable fabrics like polyester mesh. Recognizing the need for a more sustainable approach, they embarked on a journey to create Canadian-made reusable bags that make a positive impact on the environment.
Committed to a better tomorrow, The Market Bags utilizes upcycled or sustainable and organic materials to craft an eco-friendly line of reusable bags. Their mission extends beyond the products themselves; they aim to replace tear-off-the-roll plastic bags in grocery stores, inspiring change in the daily lives of people worldwide. To further their impact, they donate 1% of all bag sales to the Sustainable Nourishment Program at Mamas for Mamas, a Canadian Charity based in their hometown of Kelowna, BC. The Market Bags is dedicated to making a contribution to a better tomorrow through their mission, encapsulated in the hashtag #bagsforabettertomorrow.
