The 5 Best Sustainable Bags to Use on Earth Day

You probably already know how important sustainability is to us. While we love designing cute women’s bags for work, school, and travel, we love protecting the planet even more. 

That’s why we use repurposed fabrics, plastics, and manufacturing processes to make the best eco-friendly bags that give back to Mother Nature.

We believe in looking good and preserving the environment at the same time. Sustainable fashion is always our goal — each one of our bags and purses works to reduce waste, keep habitats clean, and make a statement. 

If you’re ready to celebrate Earth Day this year by upping your green practices, why not start with the way you shop? Try out any of these sustainable handbags, purses, and backpacks to celebrate Earth Day in style!

1. The Skye

From our Essentials Collection, this is your new favorite bag for quick trips to the farmer’s market or going out to coffee with the gals. 

The Skye is made from 100% certified Repreve recycled materials that are durable and water-resistant. Move the shoulder strap easily to carry it as a crossbody or a shoulder bag. 

The 3.5-liter capacity is perfect for your phone, passport, keys, and sunnies. Bonus points: the interior is light, so you can always find what you’re looking for!

2. The Dispatch

Plastic water bottles are terrible for the environment — but they do come in handy when trying to make the perfect sustainable bag. 

Meet your new bestie: The Dispatch. Built from plastic water bottles that could have ended up in the ocean, this bag is just as versatile as it is stylish. 

Wear it as a backpack, crossbody, or carry it comfortably as a tote with the soft handle. You’ll love the doctor’s style main opening which quickly pops open to allow you for fast access to your stuff. Plus, the side pockets are great for your (non-plastic) water bottles, or travel coffee mugs.

3. The Sola TVK

Allow us to nerd out a little bit. Ever heard of Tyvek? It’s a 100% synthetic material that has the characteristics of fabric and paper. This strong and soft material is recyclable and water-resistant, making it the perfect solution for the environment and your lifestyle. 

The Sola is your perfect companion for the daily hustle. With an interior shoe compartment and comfortable adjustable strap, it’s built for an outdoor yoga session or a weekend trip. 

Just finish up a workout? No problem. Throw this bag in the washing machine (in cold water!) to keep it fresh and new without damaging it.

4. The Tempest 

Materials matter. The Tempest is made of sustainable and hand-painted cotton canvas to give you all the style without harming the environment. 

Cotton is the largest natural fiber supply on the planet. Combined with conservative practices, using cotton helps reduce CO2 emissions and water waste. 

One of our most popular bags on the Sherpani lineup, this eco-friendly bag can convert from backpack to tote quickly to adapt to your lifestyle. Functional for carrying laptops and alluring, you’ll turn heads in the office or on your way into town for an after-hours cocktail.

If you’re headed out on a day hike, our go-to eco-friendly bag is The Esprit. The modern sling-style gives you freedom to move around, while keeping all your things secure and easy to find. 

Another bag from our Essentials Collection, you can’t go wrong with this bag made from 100% certified recycled Repreve materials. It’s 100% Vegan, too, so you can rest easy knowing that no animal products were used in making this bag.
