Did you know?

  • Most plastic carrier bags are made of polyethylene, and these take 10 to 100 years to degrade in landfills. Some plastic shopping bags currently marketed as “biodegradable” will contribute to plastic pollution if they are lost or littered. They do not break down as quickly and entirely in the environment as the degradable marketing term might imply. They are harmful to wildlife and ecosystems.
  • Polypropylene is a durable material made from recycled plastic. It can be used to line some jute supermarket bags or as a material; these degrade slowly in landfills and take around 20-30 years to completely decompose. Check the labels of your bags.
  • Bags made from Nylon will take 30 to 40 years to decompose in a landfill. 
    • To keep your canvas tote bag clean, simply wipe inside and outside down with a damp cloth. 
    • If you need to disinfectant your tote bag, a squire of HealthyClean lemon myrtle inside the tote and then a wipe doen the canvas fabric, it will do the job.
    • If you want to wash your canvas tote bag, hand wash in cold water and hang it in a cool place to dry. Don't machine wash or tumble dry. 
    • We think the waxed canvas tote bag actually starts looking 'cooler' with use and age.
    • You can personalise your tote bag by stitching or pinning a favourite something and, of course, mend the canvas tote bag if needed. 


    Our EKOH essential boxes are made from Kraft card that is unbleached and is 100% eco-friendly. The box will degrade naturally within a few weeks, decomposing just like leaves that fall off a tree. It can be recycled for use as new packaging materials. All printing is done using non-toxic inks. We considered things like paper production and printing (only 2 colours)when designing our Soap packaging to make it as earth-friendly as possible.

    100% cotton canvas and cotton stitching and lable. Natural and eco-friendly.

    Before you throw out your waxed canvas tote, consider how it could be donated, mended or repurposed. If you toss it in the bin and find its way to a landfill, the canvas will compltely break down in about eight to twelve months.

    Useful large bag that looks great.

    I use my waxed tote bag for everything from shopping at our Saturday market to carrying my computer and stuff for work - would love another colour choice, maybe browns or black, so I can have different for grocery shops

    Good Looking Large Tote Bag

    I bought 3 of these ( an investment as they will last ) and keep them in the car for grocery shopping and this bag helps make that easier. There is still room to put my other purse bag inside when shopping. One grab all to carry all the things. I’m happy with it. Plus, waxed canvas is easy to wipe clean.
