Mission

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.

Founder Story

GOT BAG’s story started on a long road trip through the Alps, when the founders and water-sport enthusiasts Benny & Roman talked about the devastating impressions of plastic crowded beaches in Thailand.

"We have to take action!"

With the idea of turning plastic waste into something useful, they started developing the world’s first backpacks made of ocean plastic and founded GOT BAG. What has been a passion project of two good friends from school is now a dedication and a fast-emerging movement. 

"Plastic pollution, climate change, and overfishing hit our oceans hard and affect marine life. Sea birds, whales, and other marine animals die every second because their stomachs are filled with plastic!"

"It all started with the vision of two friends from school and our spirit to create an impact. And I'm proud to say that we are so much more today...a team, a family, a movement."

Benjamin Mandos

It’s time for all of us to take action! Our mission and all of our actions are dedicated to raising awareness and preventing plastic from contaminating our oceans.

Our Values

We are more than a team - we are a family and a movement of visionary minds. We respect everyone for who they are and what they know. For their skills and experiences as individuals, team members, and global partners.

We want to carry people away - and inspire them for our vision. Because we are only strong if we all pull in the same direction and actually have fun working together. Which brings us closer together so we can all create an impact.

We keep a close eye on our mission - we are committed to preserving the biodiversity of our oceans. We find sustainable solutions for future generations and promote them with our full commitment.

We strive for the highest quality -because we believe that only long-lasting products are truly sustainable & responsible and contribute to positive change if the plastic stays out of our oceans forever.

Create an Impact

We are all united by the vision of a plastic-free future of our oceans. Our goal is to clean up the oceans of a significant amount of waste. Only this way we can contribute to the preservation of biodiversity and the regeneration of our marine ecosystem, and that’s what keeps pushing us into our offices every single day.

The sustainability of our work feeds us with energy and motivation, while the strong team spirit in our company binds us together. Especially as we realize more and more how big the problem with plastic pollution really is.
