Bagpad was founded in 2018 with the aim of solving the issue of keeping handbags in their original perfect shape. Currently the method used for this is filling the bags with plastic and paper. This is something that Bagpad wants to change and hence provide a more sustainable and long-term solution.
Bagpad is committed to do its part to save the planet: from using recyclable packaging and biodegradable materials—which keeps landfill waste to a minimum—to supporting environmentally-friendly initiatives. Plastics are the most common form of trash in landfills, and the most dangerous form of pollution that harms both terrestrial and marine wildlife.
Not only are landfills being swarmed with plastics, but so is the ocean, creating what’s been dubbed the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. To take a part in this issue, Bagpad collaborates with the One Ocean Foundation, which hosts beach cleanups throughout the Mediterranean Sea.
Globally, over 8 million tons of plastic are dumped into the oceans each year. Much of which ends up in gigantic floating garbage patches. Scientists increasingly warn that phthalate chemicals used in plastic packaging are contaminating the food chain, leaching into the seafood you eat, and posing a real threat to your health.
