  • ChicoBag's Travel Pack is a lightweight and secure packable backpack. The Travel Pack features a large zippered main compartment, side and top stash pockets, adjustable straps, a sternum strap for added stabilization and a storage area for a hydration reservoir. The perfect pack to take on a hike, to the beach, or as an extra bag on trips.

  • In early 2004, founder Andy Keller took a trip to the local landfill after spending the day landscaping his backyard. He was horrified by how many single-use bags filled the scene. Plastic bags blanketed the landscape in a thin mix of white and beige plastic.

    On his way home, he continued to notice plastic bags everywhere; caught in trees and on fence posts, half drowned in gutter puddles and blowing in the streets like urban tumbleweeds. He vowed to stop using single-use bags for good. Inspired, he dropped a few bucks on a secondhand sewing machine and began sewing what would ultimately become the first ChicoBag brand reusable bag.

    ChicoBag's mission is to help humanity bag the single-use habit. They mean the wasteful, throw-away habit that overflows our landfills and clogs our oceans. They do this by advocating for waste reduction and designing the highest quality, longest lasting reusable bags.

    They offer products that empower people to take an active role in solving the single-use problem. ChicoBag makes bagging the single-use habit easy.
