Seagrass is recognised as a natural carbon sink absorbing CO2 from the atmosphere, and more than that, it makes great products! As we shift away from single use plastic bags to carry our shopping, seagrass is being used to make durable, environmentally friendly and 100% biodegradable tote bags.

Plastic bags:

  • Produced for single use;
  • Made from fossil fuels;
  • Contributes to landfill waste and can end up in the oceans; and
  • Remain toxic after they have been broken down.

In comparison, reusable bags made from seagrass:

  • Made with sustainable material;
  • Absorbs carbon during growth;
  • Reusable; and
  • 100% biodegradable.

Our picks:
