Shopping Tote design 1.1
This durable and stylish 100% recycled PET tote bags directly remove plastic waste from the planet’s ecosystem.
The Tote Design 1.1 is a compact bag-in-a-bag tote, created from resilient and easy-to-clean recycled PET fabric, with a ripstop 150D weave for strength and durability.
Each tote removes 8 plastic bottles from our environment and is packaged in a 100% biodegradable cassava bag.
The Recycling Process
GroundTruth is working with the PT. Langgeng Jaya Recycling Plant in Jakarta, Indonesia, to source the waste plastic. The plant works with waste PET gathered from across Indonesia; it receives around 2,000 tonnes of waste plastic per week, combating the catastrophic plastic pollution problem that has developed within the country and its surrounding waters. At the plant, the plastic is cleaned, sorted and baled before being shipped to Taiwan to be spun into yarn, which is woven into the textiles.
100% Recycled Materials: Every component in the RIKR range is made from 100% recycled materials—from the bespoke tristop textile main body material to the padding, linings, buckles, binding, webbing, YKK NATULON® zips, hardware, and even the thread that holds everything together.
Ethically Manufactured: GROUNDTRUTH only works with bluesign®-certified and Global Recycled Standard manufacturers. Our products are made to the highest ethical and sustainable standards, ensuring that every RIKR backpack is fairly produced and designed to last a lifetime.
Go Carbon Negative: Every GROUNDTRUTH product is carbon neutral, but if you share our drive to do better, you can opt to make your purchase carbon negative at checkout. All of our products are shipped in 100% recycled, recyclable, compostable and biodegradable packaging, using zero plastic.
