Welcome to Meanbean!

We pride ourselves on recycling as often as possible. What does this mean to you?
*Your order will often be shipped in a box that has had a previous shipping life, but will NEVER be in poor condition.
*Any packing materials used inside the box are also recycled, often reclaimed from office shipments where it would end up in the trash.
*Paperwork is kept to a minimum in your shipment
*Many of our bags are created from fabric "sample books", which are used by interior designers. Because of this, many bags are one of a kind (OOAK)and may not be able to be reproduced.

If you are curious about a specific bag, just ask!

As we discover more ways to be as earth-friendly as possible, things will continue to change here. Again, if you want to know if the bag you've fallen in love with is OOAK or of recycled materials, just ask! We are happy to fully divulge the origins of each material.
