Announcement   Please note: Any purchases - from December 20 - will not be shipping out until December 27.
We appreciate your great support this holiday season!! Thank you!!

Thanks to an awesome Buzzfeed feature, our upcycled Coffee Baggs have been flying out of here!!
We use wrappers that friends and family save for us, and as of now, sadly, our supply is depleted
- BUT, if you have a wrapper you want made into a a Bagg, we can do that!
Please, just send us a convo/message!!

We recycled & repurposed Candy and Snack Wrappers Upcycled into Unique Bags and Pouches!!

Also, check out our Rings, Necklaces and even Comic mini Wallets -
made from actual comics and vintage books!!
Fun and Unique!!

I also take candy and snack wrappers and recycle them into coin and change purses, make up baggs, and/or pencil cases!

each one is handmade. the wrappers are stabilized, lined with vintage fabric.
each one is sewn and has a protective vinyl cover!!

The zippers are vintage - most are brand new, if they have been used, they are in very good working condition. We love the quality and unique style and colors of the zippers.
We have never had a customer complaint of malfunction or breakage.
(If we ever did, we would replace the item!!))

Each bagg, wallet, accessory is sturdy, usable, and fun to carry!!
I have one I made over a year ago, to carry change and my bus pass. I use it every day and its still going strong!!

***************************************************************
the shopper says:

"Love my bag! Such quick delivery! And I'm already showing it off to my friends!!"

and - even a teenage boy says "SICK!!!" as he purchased for his sister!!
(we take that as the highest compliment!!!)

***************************************************************
*** allergy alert ***
these are the actual wrappers.
each one is cleaned with soapy water before creating - however -
please do not purchase if there is an allergy
to what has been in the package!!

***************************************************************
Got a favorite chocolate bar or snack.
Send it to me and I can make the packaging into your own coin purse or bag!
Just convo me!!

About

Trash to Trashbaggs

What was a high school class project, has turned into a thriving little green business.
We take candy and snack wrappers, as well as old books and comics and turn them into bags and accessories.
We, Jayme (daughter) and Lynn (mom) create everything in our home studio in Vancouver.
Jayme is generally the creative genius, ideas for what and how to design, Lynn helps in the day to day running of the business as Jayme completes her last year in Graphic Design studies in college.
-so you're not only supporting an environmentally thoughtful company, you're helping me get my college education!

Thank you for your great love and support of Trashbaggs!!

    As a high school class idea, I wanted to find a way to turn candy wrappers -headed for the landfill into something, fun and usable. With my ideas, and my moms help, Trashbaggs were born! People love them, they are unique, definitely one of a kind!
