ECOcentric Bags offers practical solutions to the growing need for sustainable, reusable, and recycled products.
Calgary, Canada (PRWEB) April 12, 2011
ECOcentric Bags, one of the largest online retailers of eco-friendly bags and accessories, today announced its plans to extend its sales area to the United States to coincide with the growing “green” consciousness of the population.
Bans on plastic bags are gaining momentum all over the world. As more and more people become eco-conscious and aware that their everyday activities have an effect on the environment, the timing for the U.S. launch of ECOcentric Bags, an online store of high-quality recycled and reusable bags, could not be better. The innovative website offers one-stop-shopping for eco-conscious consumers searching for that perfect eco-friendly handbag, reusable shopping bag, eco-friendly backpack or messenger bag, belt, or wallet. Eco bags made from sustainable resources such as hemp, organic cotton and bamboo are offered alongside items made from repurposed inner tubes, ad banners, candy wrappers, sails, and more.
The name of the website came naturally from the definition of “ecocentrism,” a system of values centered around nature and the environment. The company strives to offer practical solutions to the growing need for sustainable, reusable, and recycled products through high-quality and functional eco-friendly bags and accessories that boost concern for the planet and encourage recycling.
ECOcentric Bags was launched in 2010 by a husband and wife business team located in Calgary, Canada. The business idea was born out of the struggle the couple encountered while trying to find stylish eco-friendly alternatives to traditional handbags and accessories. The website currently offers a large selection of eco-friendly bags from a variety of well-known and respected eco-brands such as Envirosax, ChicoBag, English Retreads, Maggie Bags, Ecolution, the Hemptress, Make Love not Trash, and many more. The company plans to expand rapidly and aims to achieve their goal of becoming the largest source of eco-friendly bags on the planet. ECOcentric Bags is a proud member of “1% for the Environment,” an organization with whom over 1400 businesses around the world donate one percent of every purchase price to various environmental efforts around the world.
