We keep our supply chain as close as possible to reduce CO2 emissions related to transport while producing a socially responsable and affordable bag.
Over 90% reduction in water consumption
If we compare our tote bag to a conventional cotton bag, which uses about 1200L of water, we reduce the consumption by 99%. In the case of organically grown cotton the reduction reaches 90%.
100% wood fibre from sustainable sources
The prime material for our bags is timber generated by thinning or damaged wood left over from other operations. This beech wood comes purely from PEFC/FSC certified sources.
Closed loop production
The wood fibre is produced in a closed loop process. Over 99% of the solvent used is recovered and recycled and the water consomption is reduced drastically.
Sewing thread + tags made from the same material
Even sustainable bags use plastic thread and tags, which are cheaper and widely available. We commit to only using TENCEL accessories to make our TreeTote 100% wood fibre.
100% recyclable 100% compostable
After using the tote bag as many times as possible, we recommend recycling it with textiles as this is the highest value disposal. The TreeTote is also 100% compostable.

We're confident that we are doing our best for our planet but how can our clients be sure? A QR code is placed on every TreeTote allowing you to consult the entire verified supply chain.
Why replace cotton?
Natural doesn't always equal sustainable.
Our wood based material has been engineered to have the lowest possible environmental impact, optimising every step of the way.
