Our Mission

The ocean might seem far away from our offices, but our team member Billy is actively engaged on the north shore of Java, Indonesia, where he manages our clean-up activities to gradually clear the sea from plastic.

Because future generations need our oceans too!

Our planet is drowning in plastic pollution. 91% of the worldwide plastic waste is not being recycled and a staggering 8 million tons of plastic end up in our oceans every year. That’s about 17.6 billion pounds — or the equivalent of nearly 57,000 blue whales — every single year!  

GOT BAG is an eco-friendly, social-first fashion brand dedicated to raising awareness and cleaning our oceans from plastic pollution. 

With the idea of turning plastic waste into sustainable travel gear, we started in 2016 to develop the world’s first backpacks made from 100% recycled ocean plastic. What has been a passion project of two good friends tightly connected to the ocean since childhood is now a dedication and a fast-emerging movement.

How we turn trash into treasure

Our network of 1,500 fishermen on the north shore of Java, Indonesia collects ocean plastic as by-catch. The plastic is cleaned and sorted before processed.
The PET portion of the by-catch is shredded into pellets, while all other types of the recovered plastic are discarded according to the right recycling chain.
The pellets are turned into a robust yarn and ultimately into a polyester fabric, which is water-repellent thanks to an innovative BIO-PU coating and the foundation for your GOT BAG.
To keep our CO2 footprint as low as possible, we chose trains to Europe and ships to the US as our means of transport. We are also working on climate-neutral and carbon offset options, to get the products to our end customers. Stay tuned!

It is a pleasure to give away your products as a gift! Easy-care, robust and it gives you a good feeling to contribute a little to the disposal of plastic waste. I wish all products were so sustainable and I feel like there is room for other colors in the design line! Keep it up!
