The quest for sustainable business practices has been driving action by individuals and companies for years, but never more than present. Founded on sustainability, Sea Bags identified the need for repurposing sail cloth, which by design does not break down. Since our founding, we've diverted over 700 tons of sails that were bound for the landfill.
At Sea Bags we like to partner with causes that we feel a personal connection to, which is why our team was drawn to the American Heart Association's Life is Why™ Campaign and inspired to develop our own collection to spread the message. The focus on a bright, graphic fuchsia heart was the foundation and it naturally paired with classic Breton stripes. The result is a decidedly nautical design with a strong heart that will have an impact on fighting heart disease in our community and beyond.
In order to achieve our goal of saving sails from landfills, we have expanded our sail trade team over the past year. These new faces have brought forth new connections, which is how our recently hired Sail Acquisition Manager for New England, Taylor Marshall, introduced us to Nat Warren-White. With a fascinating history on the water, and lifelong connection to the world of sailing, it was only a matter of time before Nat would find Sea Bags via our Sail Trade program.
Adopting a more sustainable lifestyle can seem like an intimidating shift, but it doesn't have to be. Taking small steps to reduce our waste actually greatly reduces our environmental impact. To help, we've outlined a few ways for you to get started on your journey.

It's no secret that our favorite place on earth is a little wharf seated atop the Atlantic Ocean. This wharf has brought us close to individuals from all walks of life – from lobstermen who cruise in and out from our docks with their latest catch, to tourists who excitedly wait in line for their daysail on a historic schooner. And though sometimes we're worlds apart, we are united by one thing: the ocean.
