Reusable Bags with a Purpose

ECORIFIC are Reusable Bags with a Purpose made with Waste free living in mind.
We encourage sustainable living and believe in reducing Single-use plastic by encouraging people to BYOB (Bring your own Bag).
The Bags are used for shopping, carrying lunches to work or school, travelling, picnics, for the beach, festivals or any On the Go activities.

You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.

Starting with a zero waste mindset

It’s time to get creative and to think about your biggest sources of waste in your home. What do you throw away in the bin or recycle?

Food scraps, vegetable peelings, takeaway containers, cleaning and toiletry products, or paper? Now start by trying to reduce in the areas with the most waste. Some ideas to start implementing would be to buy fabric produce bags which will cut down on grocery waste, a re-usable coffee cup and water bottle, a stainless steel straw, a reusable cutlery set and a Compost bin.

Saying “no” to items you don’t need – the plastic straw in a drink at a restaurant or a plastic bag at the grocery till. A zero waste lifestyle would be much easier if we had more shops that sold items in bulk and you could bring your own container (BYOC) to fill. However, remember that your daily choices matter, it doesn’t matter how big or small it is, but it’s a start!
