  • FAQ

    Where does the ocean plastic for your products come from?

    We collaborate with a network of 1,500 fishermen on the north shore of Java, Indonesia, where our team member Billy manages the clean-up. Those fishermen collect the ocean plastic as by-catch. The plastic is cleaned and sorted before processed further. The PET portion of the by-catch is shredded into pellets, while all other unusable parts of the recovered plastic are discarded according to the right recycling chain. 

    Through our efforts with local authorities, we provide workshops and educate the residents on the environmental threats caused by plastic pollution. In the long term, we hope to create an impact not only by providing environmentally and socially compatible products but also with a change of actions of our audience. 

    How do you make sure my HIP BAG won’t end up in our oceans again?

    Only a long lasting product is a truly sustainable product. If your HIP BAG is damaged, we will repair it as part of our GOT BAG Cycle, to make sure nothing of it will ever end up in our oceans again. Any excess material will be reintroduced in the next production cycle.

    How sustainable are your logistical routes and the packaging material?

    We take our mission seriously. Your order should be delivered to your doorstep with as few emissions as possible. That’s why we choose trains to Europe and ships to the US as our means of transport. We ship our sustainable products only in Poly Mailers that are made with 100% recycled content as well. The mailers are reusable and recyclable (for most households, these would be recycled at a standard grocery bag drop off location). To learn more about our approach to eco-friendly packaging, visit our partner’s website here. Currently we are also working on climate-neutral options, to at least carbon offset our shipping methods with our carriers. Stay tuned!

Ever since we started our journey in 2016, we’ve been pursuing our goal of cleaning the oceans from plastic waste!

How we turn trash into treasure!

Wonderful!

Love it! I bought it just to take part in saving the planet. Love the simple and light design! I use it as a sling and it’s awesome! Hope I see daily tote style soon.

Love it

After a few days of carrying around the HIP BAG, I can confidently say that I love it! Much better than carrying around a full purse or backpack. Plus, the all-black design goes great with the rest of my wardrobe.

Nice fanny pack with some potential for improvement

I have had the fanny pack for a few weeks now and I use it regularly. What I think is worth mentioning is that due to the shape of the bag a lot of things really fit in it (more than the brand with an "E" ending with a "pak" ;)). I also think it's great that the bag is made of water-repellent material which is a plus point. There is also a small compartment on the back where you can store small stuff like ID, keys and money.
One point I noticed, which I would like to improve, is that instead of only one slider on the front zipper, you can insert a second one to be more flexible.
Apart from that I am very satisfied and can warmly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a sustainable alternative for a fanny pack.

Recycling of ocean plastic

By using recycled PET, we made the commitment to utilize an eco-friendly alternative to new plastic in our yarn production. One metric ton of recycled PET saves 3.8 barrels of oil, 3,750 lb of water, and reduces the CO2 emission by 306,000 lb compared to the industry standard. So far, we were able to recycle 117 tons of ocean plastic.

Sociological & ecological values

Providing environmentally and socially compatible products is not enough for us. We also organize training sessions on waste separation for the local community on Java, to create a collective awareness about plastic pollution. GOT BAG also helps to support the establishment of a waste infrastructure in rural areas. In the long term, we hope to persuade the local government to rethink the way it operates Indonesia’s waste management system.

Innovative BIO-PU coating

Sustainable down to the last fiber! The fabric of every GOT BAG is water-repellent thanks to an innovative BIO-PU coating, which uses significantly less water and oil during production, while also emitting less CO2 than traditional coating processes. All of our products are free from PFC.

THE GOT BAG CYCLE

With our GOT BAG CYCLE, we decided to rely on a sustainable life cycle approach guided by nature.

We recycle plastic waste to manufacture premium yarns, which we ultimately use to sew our long-lasting products. Every single GOT BAG product is of the highest quality and durable. If you still encounter problems with one of our products, or if the product gets damaged, we offer you a repair service. If we exchange your GOT BAG, we will re-recycle the material for our next production line to make sure that the plastic will never end up in our oceans again.
