Supporting Environmental Literacy
Who They Are
Bagito is truly the story of a brand that puts impact first. When founder Mitch Barlas was working as a school administrator in the Bronx, New York, he noticed that students were not receiving any type of environmental education. Knowing that environmental literacy is extremely important to the next generation, he set out to fix this by founding a non-profit K-12 environmental education program, Power2Sustain.
With a mission comes the need for funds, and that’s exactly where reusable bags came in! Mitch realized how much single use plastic is still used in the grocery shopping process, and started there. With a used sewing machine and a lot of ideas, he began creating reusable solutions to everyday plastic waste.
What originally started out as an idea non-profit funding quickly grew into a company that helps people live more sustainably in their everyday lives. Bagito is committed to creating high-quality reusable shopping bags and other reusable products made out of organic, non-GMO fabric and products made out of 100% recycled plastics. Bagito bags are designed to be used on the go to help you reduce your reliance on wasteful, single-use bags.
