CLOSED Giveaway: Chico Bag

In early 2004, Andy Keller, now ChicoBag president, took a trip to his local landfill after spending the day landscaping his backyard. He was horrified by what he saw. Single-use bags were visually the dominant article at the landfill that day, blanketing the landscape in a thin mix of white and beige plastic. On his way home he began to notice plastic bags everywhere, caught in trees and on fence posts, half drowned in gutter puddles and blowing in the streets like urban tumbleweeds.

That day Andy vowed to stop using single-use bags. Inspired, Andy dropped a few bucks on a second hand sewing machine and began sewing what would ultimately become the first ChicoBag™ brand reusable bag.

Andy understood that a reusable bag was only valuable if it was reused. He knew his challenge was larger than designing any ordinary reusable bag – this reusable bag needed to be designed to be unforgettable. It needed to be small enough to tote in a pocket and have features that allowed it to clip anywhere.

After countless hours, fabrics and prototypes the Original ChicoBag brand reusable bag, complete with an integrated stuff pouch and attached carabiner, was born. Andy’s ChicoBag™ brand reusable bags were first sold in 2005 on Earth Day at the Farmers Market in Chico, CA. Initially only available in white, the Original has evolved to include eleven color choices.
