ABOUT THE COMPANY
Since ECOBAGS began in 1989, all products are and have been made in socially responsible environments. Our primary production partners in India have always shared our vision of an engaged and sustainable work environment. They offer competitive compensation, extended health coverage, retirement benefits, pension plans (under government programs), vacations and holidays; going well beyond local labor requirements. Our CEO and Founder, Sharon Rowe, travels to India regularly and, over the 25+ years, has created lifelong relationships.
With CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility), getting so much media play it's important to hold certifications that are reviewed and recognized, internationally, by third party agencies.
Our supply chain for organic fibers (no chemicals, synthetic fertilizers) is certified through GOTS. Our supply chain for recycled & conventional fibers, is certified by SA-8000. Our certifications are recognized internationally and cover operational and social workplace accountability.
We introduced certified organic cotton (1996) and recycled cotton (2004) to our line long before there was awareness or a market for them. We knew it was the right direction to go in. Our recycled fibers are post industrial, keeping waste out of landfill. All fabric dyes are azo free and all screen-print inks are non toxic to both humans and the environment. We know that conventional cotton has a negative environmental impact. We are working to transition all of our products to organic and recycled fibers.
When we produce in the USA and China we make sure all practices and policies are in full compliance (labor, materials and environment). To date we have used SGS as our third party certifier on projects.
We are a certified BCorporation which means that all of our certifications and processes are reviewed and approved on an ongoing basis.
Additionally, we support the Sierra Club, Hudson River ClearWater, Riverkeeper, and Algalita.
