Carolyn Tote Bag

Generously sized tote bag perfect for carrying your laptop, gym clothes, farmer's market haul, and much more.

Hand wash or Gentle Cycle and lay flat to dry. One Size. Model carrying the burlap bag is 6'1", model carrying the Charcoal Floral bag is 5'3". 

All fabric for these totes has been sourced through our trusted recycling partner, FabScrap. Each material was recovered from high-end designers in New York City and saved as part of our larger effort to divert fabrics from landfills and incinerators. 

This tote was named in honor of Carolyn Miles, former CEO of Save the Children. Under her senior leadership, the organization doubled the number of children it reaches with nutrition, health, education, and other programs. Miles' signature issues include hunger, learning outcomes, and ending preventable child deaths. Her championing of women's and girls' issues is also well known in the INGO community.
