Coffee Sack Carry All Tote

This tote bag made from upcycled coffee sacks not only helps its owner carry around lots of stuff, it also helps artisans in Guatemala.

The artisans who make these bags protect worker rights as well as teach skills to other artisans so they can expand their markets. The totes are also made using local, natural materials, so their impact on the environment is limited.
