I’m a little bit lazy by nature…on one level I am very hardworking, but in another way, reducing my eco-footprint has not come naturally to me. But with the encouragement of so many followers, I decided that “If not us, then who? And if not now, then when?”. I was so absolutely delighted to stumble upon Colony Co with their amazing canvas shopping bags and lunch bags, unbleached cotton produce and bulk bin bags.
Colony Co offers useful and sustainable items for everyday life. They have a dedication to making products of unmatched quality, with an emphasis on durability. Colony Co’s mission is to help you eliminate disposable products from your daily life. I set out on a mission for my own self to begin to reduce, organically. What I love, is that our missions are aligned. I am also delighted to support a small business and a stay at home dad who wants to make a difference in the world the way we all do. Colony Co is dedicated to looking for new opportunities to replace the single-use items our world has grown accustomed to using and throwing away every day. They make their products to last a long time…but if you ever do need to dispose of a Colony Co item, rest assured that they are all biodegradable!
What has been most delightful for me on this small journey that I have begun is how much support and love and encouragement I am getting from you…..you are leading the way and others are following suit.
Large grocery bag
This durable bag is made from heavy duty waxed canvas – stain resistant and easy to clean. The design was inspired by a standard brown paper grocery bag and has high quality stitching and seam work that make it strong and built to last. It’s also biodegradable and vegan friendly – free of any synthetic or plastic based materials and free of animal based materials such as leather or beeswax. Dimensions: 17 x 12 x 7 inches
The lunch bag is made from the same great heavy duty as the grocery bag, so it’s built to last. The simple design is highly functional – no buckles or zippers, waxed canvas rolls down and stays put. Use for lunch or to carry all kinds of items. Great as a small grocery bag too, for those quick trips to the store for one or two items. It’s also biodegradable and vegan friendly – free of any synthetic or plastic based materials and free of animal based materials such as leather or beeswax. It’s now available in 5 fun colors. Dimensions: 14 x 8 x 5 inches
Reusable produce bags
These bags are called “produce bags” but there are so many more ways to use them. Travel, organize your suitcase, use as a toiletry bag, in a tote or purse, carry small sports equipment. Use when shopping for anything…clothes, shoes and of course your produce and groceries and store all kinds of food and other household items. Made of natural, unbleached cotton, these bags are polyester and nylon free as well as biodegradable. These bags have a tightly woven mesh, double stitched seams and a stainless steel cord lock on the drawstring, so they are built to last. The TARE weight is clearly labeled on each bag so a store cashier can easily deduct the weight when ringing up foods. 10 piece multi pack contains: 3 Large (17 x 11 inches), 4 Medium (13 x 11), 3 Small (8 x 11).
Reusable bulk bin bags
Just like the produce bags, these bags have multiple functions. They were designed to be perfect for shopping in bulk bins for foods like nuts, granola, grains and seeds.
