Every Nature Bag is green. In fact, every tote we offer is Earth’s
Greenest Bag™. Made at home from a natural wild-growing fiber that
thrives without agriculture. No chemicals. No irrigation. No
cultivation. Harvested and processed by hand. Only human energy is
used in crafting. It's vegan -- no animals required. No fuel
consumption. If non-human energy is used in the homes of the crafters,
it's electricity created by the sun or water. Twenty percent of the
miniscule energy used in our underground Iowa USA warehouse is from the
This means we offer the ultimate green shopping tote bag. Our largest bags have so
much capacity that when filled with some items, they are too heavy for most people to lift. If you have lots of bulk but not so much weight easily handle 4 filled ecobags -- 2 around
the neck and under the arm (one on each side); 1 over each shoulder.
You can add earth friendly bags 5 and 6 by carrying one in each hand.
Or try the Khmu method and add green bag 7: the strap on the forehead with the reusable bag
draping down the center of your back. CAUTION: Carrying too much by
your forehead can cause neck injury. We also do not recommend the Khmu method if you have something that could interest thieves because a bag on the forehead makes it very easy to pull you to the ground.
Biodegradable. Zero (or negative?) carbon footprint, because as its
fiber grows, carbon is captured from the atmosphere, stored, and
returned to the earth when you bury it (if you ever decide to not use
your earth friendly tote any longer).
Oxygen for us to breathe oozes into the air from Jungle Vine® while
it grows. Light-weight so that little energy is used for shipping or
carrying. The ultimate reusable tote. Strong and durable so that it
rarely needs replacement. Resistant to stains and odors so that its
care consumes little water, and soap only if you want. Dirt that gets
into it easily shakes out in the wind.
Stretchable so that a small size goes a long way. There's always
room to put something else inside. The limitation on cargo in our
bigger bags is how much you can lift and carry. Elastic, so that its
strong natural Jungle Vine® cord gently grasps your cargo, holding it in
place, minimizing pressure on nearby fragile items.
Nature Bag is an eco friendly tote that's also nice to people and
animals. Environmentally friendly for eco-conscious green-thinking
earth-loving people around the world. Its home-crafting enables Asia's
poorest people to enhance an ancient lifestyle while maintaining
traditional village-centered care of children and social
interaction with neighbors. There's no commuting to work.
Daycare is at home. Pre-school children learn from their parents. An
ancient craft is preserved.
The mission of the Nature Bag Khmu/Lao
Poverty Reduction Project is fulfilled!
