International Coastal Clean Up Day

Once again, on the 3rd Saturday in September, the Sea Bags crew took to the beach to participate in International Coastal Clean-Up Day. The goal is to assist in keeping our coastline and waterways free of trash and debris that can negatively affect the health of our precious coastal ecosystems.

Are All Sea Bags Made From Recycled Content?

Customers who stumble upon Sea Bags are often surprised to learn that every bag we make uses recycled sail cloth.

But the truth is that all of our bags are and have always been crafted only from recycled sail cloth.

What Makes Your Recycled Sail Cloth Sea Bag Unique?
