  • FAQ

    Where does the ocean plastic for your products come from?

    We collaborate with a network of 1,500 fishermen on the north shore of Java, Indonesia, where our team member Billy manages the clean-up. Those fishermen collect the ocean plastic as by-catch. The plastic is cleaned and sorted before processed further. The PET portion of the by-catch is shredded into pellets, while all other unusable parts of the recovered plastic are discarded according to the right recycling chain. 

    Through our efforts with local authorities, we provide workshops and educate the residents on the environmental threats caused by plastic pollution. In the long term, we hope to create an impact not only by providing environmentally and socially compatible products but also with a change of actions of our audience. 

    How do you make sure my backpack won't end up in our oceans again?

    Only a long lasting product is a truly sustainable product. If your DAYPACK is damaged, we will repair it as part of our GOT BAG Cycle, to make sure nothing of it will ever end up in our oceans again. Any excess material will be reintroduced in the next production cycle.

    How does every backpack recover 2,5 kg when it only weighs 540 g?

    Our products are made of recycled PET. The plastic trash we recover is so diverse though, that on average, we have to recover 2,5 kg of plastic trash until we get to a PET portion of 540 g. As a quick reminder, one metric ton of recycled PET saves 3.8 barrels of oil and 1,7 kg of CO2! Of course we don't just through the unusable parts of the recovered plastic back into the ocean. Instead we discard the trash according to the right recycling chain.

Ever since we started our journey in 2016, we’ve been pursuing our goal of cleaning the oceans from plastic waste!

My new companion

Just before my trip to Asia (March 2020) I ordered the daypack. The shipping worked out without any problems. Since then the daypack has become my reliable everyday companion. No matter if I am travelling or working at university. All my important objects of daily life, as well as laptop and camera etc., fit into it. So I always have everything with me and don't have to worry about a rain shower. I also think the size and the design is perfect.

High quality product but slow shipping

The backpack makes a very high quality impression. Only the shipping took 6 days. But I'll turn a blind eye to that, because the customer service answered quickly and friendly to my inquiry.

thoroughly tested

I have had the daypack for a month and a half now and couldn't be more satisfied.
First of all, I am an absolute backpack person, I only use handbags in absolute "emergencies", I ride my bike a lot and work as a teacher, so I have to take along more stuff. The backpack is the perfect everyday companion. I can easily carry my 15" laptop, 2 school books, pencil case, the materials for the day, clothes for the gym class and my thermo mug?, absolutely no problem, a real space miracle without seeming too big. Since the zipper goes up to about half of the edge, you can reach everywhere, even with a well-filled backpack. Visually I like it also very much. It keeps its shape even if it is not filled. The color and design is simple, functional and yet appealing. The fact that it is waterproof is great for someone who travels a lot by bike. The backpack has been used intensively by me and was also properly strained, even when heavily filled, I have no worries that the material will give way, the carrying is still comfortable. The workmanship is ingenious, I can't say otherwise. In addition, a project that deserves the support, shopping with a clear conscience!

After all the praise, however, a small optimization hint. I would like to have an additional outside pocket on the edge, so that you have small things at hand without having to take off the backpack. For my taste it doesn't have to be the bottle holder, a small compartment for tissue, the bicycle lamps or (Coronatime) the mask would be practical, a short grip to the side and you have the small things at hand without having to take off the backpack.

Thanks for the great piece, keep it up!

Perfect everyday backpack

I am absolutely thrilled with the backpack.A good size, by also stowing away paper blocks without the corners creasing. It looks and feels very high quality. It also kept the rain off perfectly today. I especially like the slightly thicker straps. And they are made of recycled plastic. Top!

Recycling of ocean plastic

By using recycled PET, we made the commitment to utilize an eco-friendly alternative to new plastic in our yarn production. One metric ton of recycled PET saves 3.8 barrels of oil, 1.700 litres of water, and reduces the CO2 emission by 139 tons compared to the industry standard. So far, we were able to recycle more than 100 tons of ocean plastic.

Sociological & ecological values

Providing environmentally and socially compatible products is not enough for us. We also organize training sessions on waste separation for the local community on Java, to create a collective awareness about plastic pollution. GOT BAG also helps to support the establishment of a waste infrastructure in rural areas. In the long term, we hope to persuade the local government to rethink the way it operates Indonesia’s waste management system.

Innovative BIO-PU coating

Sustainable down to the last fiber! The fabric of every GOT BAG is water-repellent thanks to an innovative BIO-PU coating, which uses significantly less water and oil during production, while also emitting less CO2 than traditional coating processes. The coating is 100% biodegradable and all of our products are free from PFC.

THE GOT BAG CYCLE

With our GOT BAG CYCLE, we decided to rely on a sustainable life cycle approach guided by nature.

We recycle plastic waste to manufacture premium yarns, which we ultimately use to sew our long-lasting products. Every single GOT BAG product is of the highest quality and durable. If you still encounter problems with one of our products, or if the product gets damaged, we offer you a repair service. If we exchange your GOT BAG, we will re-recycle the material for our next production line to make sure that the plastic will never end up in our oceans again.
