  • 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 ROLLTOP 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 3,5 kg when it only weighs 1 kg?

    Our products are made of recycled PET. The plastic trash we recover is so diverse though, that on average, we have to recover 3,5 kg of plastic trash until we get to a PET portion of 1 kg. 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.

    Is there any difference in the manufacturing process compared to the black ROLLTOP backpack?

    Our backpacks in colour are coloured and produced by bluesign certified manufacturers, like the black ROLLTOP.

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

Simple design, robust, large space and a message to support

After using the original black Got Bag for more than half a year I am still happy with it. It has much space to fit all my things for work, study or a weekend trip and protects them against all weather with its robust coat. Cool that the bag is now also available in different colours. Definitely a good project to support and perfect if you like a simple and practical oriented design.

Cool idea, great investment, but expect poor quality

The Sand backpack is a beautiful. I love the design and thought behind it, but mine came with scratches. The material scratches so easily, which is a disappointment. I emailed the sender and received no reply thus far.

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.
