MyBaguse concept was created by Jade Du Toit on a family holiday up the West Coast of South Africa. The amount of plastic built up on the beach inspired her search for a reusable tote bag that was aesthetically pleasing, durable and compact. With no luck, she decided to make the bag she envisioned herself.
Did you know, the average lifespan of a reusable bag can equate to over 700 disposable plastic bags. In the past year, the Shoprite Group, sold 700 million plastic bags made from 100% post-consumer recycled material, diverting 7,000 tons of plastic from landfill.
An estimated two million bags are thrown away every minute globally, and just 5% of people re-using plastic bags that are used for an average of 12 minutes. According to waste management only 1% of plastic bags are returned for recycling and up to 80% of ocean plastic pollution is from land.
The mission at MyBaguse is to make bags that full many needs, are well-designed, as affordable as possible and produced in a way that’s mindful of the environment.
MyBaguse Bags are made from 40% recycled nylon sourced from pre-consumer waste. They hold 2 to 3 plastic bags worth of goods and are great for many activities and outings. Whether its a trip to your local grocer, the beach or even an overnight stay, a MyBaguse bag is your versatile, sustainable companion for any of your daily activities. Do good while you look good.
MyBaguse bags are machine washable, line dry and fold into a small pouch for easy storageand access. ‘They fit perfectly into the side of a handbag and are easy to access when outand about shopping, visiting the pool or browsing at the market.’
