  • Following on the heels of our wildly popular I heart NPR reusable Chico bags, the Share More bag has the same features, like the built-in storage pouch that allows you to stuff the bag away when not in use, and just a bit more.  The Share More bag is larger with a forty pound carrying capacity and shoulder length straps making it an ideal companion for any day trip or shopping outing. Made of durable, machine washable fabric, this reusable bag is imprinted with some very smart and kind squirrels tuning in to NPR along with a little reminder to “share more”. 

  • 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.
