WATERPROOF & ADJUSTABLE

THE WORLD’S FIRST BACKPACK MADE OF OCEAN PLASTIC

Because future generations need our oceans too!

Our planet is drowning in plastic pollution. 91% of the worldwide plastic waste is not being recycled and a staggering 8 million tons of plastic end up in our oceans every year. That’s about 17.6 billion pounds — or the equivalent of nearly 57,000 blue whales — every single year!  

GOT BAG is an eco-friendly, fashion-forward backpack & lifestyle accessories brand, dedicated to raising awareness and cleaning our oceans from plastic pollution.

With the idea of turning plastic waste into sustainable travel gear, we started in 2016 to develop the world’s first backpacks made from recycled ocean plastic. What has been a passion project of two good friends tightly connected to the ocean since childhood is now a dedication and a fast-emerging movement.

How we turn trash into treasure

Our network of 1,500 fishermen on the north shore of Java, Indonesia collects ocean plastic as by-catch. The plastic is cleaned and sorted before processed.

The PET portion of the by-catch is shredded into pellets, while all other types of the recovered plastic are discarded according to the right recycling chain.
progress-arrow
The pellets are turned into a robust yarn and ultimately into a polyester fabric, which is water-repellent thanks to an innovative BIO-PU coating and the foundation for your GOT BAG.

To keep our CO2 footprint as low as possible, we chose trains to Europe and ships to the US as our means of transport. We are also working on climate-neutral and carbon offset options, to get the products to our end customers. Stay tuned!

This bag is amazing. It fits everything, the laptop sleeve is super convenient for making it a go-to work or travel bag, it's waterproof, and super stylish. On top of that, it's entirely made from Ocean Plastic so I feel like I'm actually helping out the earth.
