Raising funds and giving back

Over the years, we have had the pleasure of meeting hard-working individuals who dedicate their lives to some pretty inspirational causes. The fundraising business allows us to be a part of great organizations, if only for a brief chapter in their overall story. Here are some of the groups that we have worked with to do fundraisers as well as groups that we have donated our bags to in order to help their cause.

Why Reusable Bags?

Every day we learn more about the impact we have on our environment. Mixed Bag Designs' reusable bags are made from partially recycled plastic (the same plastic used in yogurt cups!) and are recyclable themselves in any place that accepts #5 plastics. Using reusable bags is a great way to cut down on waste and we like to add fun designs to make sure you won't forget those bags at home! Read more about Reusable Bags here.
