The Market and Storage Bags are a set of fair trade bags that help a shopper sustainably collect, carry, and store produce and bulk foods without needing a separate plastic produce bag.

The bags were manufactured in southern VA by a nonprofit that employs Americans with Disabilities. Green Upward believes their bags should be mission focused, and the bags’ goal is to support sustainability in our community. 2% of the bags’ sale are donated to Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food & Agriculture, a non-profit that leads sustainable farming efforts in the Washinton D.C area.

The designs’ journey begins and ends with good dirt. The bag fabric is 100% organic cotton: grown without harmful pesticides. The cotton is then woven into the highest quality fabric and dyed with low impact dyes. If the bags are no longer needed the materials are completely biodegradable. This means the bag can be cut-up and composted, and returned to the earth. The weight of the bag (tare) is listed on the inside of the bag and can be deducted at checkout.
