A Bag on a Mission

Offering the most sustainable option on the market
So what is the answer if it’s not plastic? If we look around the natural world the answers are already there, we don’t even have to create something that doesn’t already exist in nature. What Stardust found was a plant that was indispensable to many countries..Jute!
Jute is an ancient textile that’s been used in the world since the beginning of time. We have been able to refine and weave it into a fabric that is beautiful and strong. Jute grows without the use of fertilizers and pesticides and only relies on natural rainfall. It also absorbs carbon dioxide and releases oxygen much faster than trees. This makes Jute one of the most sustainable crops on earth.

more about us

After traveling to SE Asia together we noticed that everywhere we went there were plastic bags. It was an overwhelming and helpless feeling seeing the destruction they have caused all over the world. We were inspired by some local villagers in Bali, Indonesia trying to ban plastic bags on the island.   So, we asked ourselves how we could help and took a deep look at the current options on the market. We realized the current reusable bags were a step in the right direction, but we needed to use a material that would return to the earth within our lifetime. In our travels we had seen people using bags made of local material like bamboo and palm fronds. That’s when we hatched the idea for Stardust Sustainable Bags.
