Ecobags is a New Zealand company made up of people who believe in sustainability

  • We’re on a mission to provide sensible alternatives that help kiwis transition away from single-use plastic in their everyday lives and work.

    Husband and wife team, Jas and Simren, founded Ecobags NZ over a decade ago - long before the plastic bag ban that has seen so many competitors jump into this space in recent years.

    Initially providing early adopters like the Wellington Library with bespoke reusable bags – and have since pioneered a wide product range that strives to be kinder to the environment and challenge traditional plastic counterparts.
  • We believe strongly in the philosophy to reduce, reuse, recycle and repurpose. We proudly stand out as leaders in our sector.

    For us it’s not enough to simply keep abreast of sustainability trends; we want to lead consumers to practical solutions, and educate them on different packaging materials, so we can all join the movement towards a better tomorrow.

Giving Back

Every year we put a portion of our earnings back into fighting for the environment. For the past two years we have gotten behind the Trees That Count initiative - you'll see their Committed to Climate 2020 stamp on some of our products. Trees That Count are on a mission to get more native trees planted throughout New Zealand. They’re making this happen through tree gifting, corporate funding, supporting planting projects, and pulling together volunteer planters. Ka pai!
