About B
Bazura Bags come from a women's co-op in the Philippines that set up a Livelihood Project assisted by the local village council. With almost no capital, the women found a very clever way to support themselves.

Every day, children from the local schools collect over 50,000 used drink containers, called doy packs, then sell them to the co-op. The bags are sanitized and the women sew them together into attractive, durable bags.

Unlike most third world factory workers toiling away in sweatshops, these women are entrepreneurs and shareholders. They work for themselves, have a positive impact on their community, and encourage environmentalism.

Fact
It's estimated that millions of juice containers get thrown in the trash everyday in the Philippines.

Tip
Got a stuck zipper? Rubbing both sides of the zipper with a bar of soap or wax helps! Or try our other zipper tips.

5.0 Love them!

Comments about Product:

I have used two of these daily for the last school year and they have stood up to my 5 year old's lunch use. (And can fit two lunches for my twin girls.) They keep his lunch cool and they remind people to reuse! The handle on the medium bag has the same outer covering as the whole bag and that's the only wear I can see on the box-- the largest bag (I've used for over 4 years) has a nonjuicebox handle and has stood up better. These wash well although I've only washed them 2-3 times in the washing machine.

5.0 Sturdy

Comments about Product:

I was pleasantly surprised at how sturdy this bag feels. It's a pretty good size for lunches. I think one long strap may work better than the two smaller straps. It would be easier to put over your shoulder if you are carting around mutiple work bags.

Comments about Product:

I get so many questions about this bag and get to share their story. Mine has juice boxes that are not made here in the U.S. so it makes for some great story starters. I like the shape and size because I usually take a pretty large salad. I found other bags weren't large enough to hold my salad, drink and snack. This bag is just the right size to hold all I need. Love this bag!

5.0 Love these bags!

Comments about Product:

I bought 2 of these bags for the summer lunches. They are just the right size for fitting a sandwich tupperware, a 2 cup tupperware for veggies (with ice underneath) and a cup and banana on top. In fact my twin toddlers share one of these with 4 -8oz containers and still have room for 2 bananas. They are durable- I have the large size that I've used for over 4 years and it is still in great shape. Plus they look so cheerful. I get comments all the time from people who love my kids lunch bags. I'll never buy anything else.

Comments about Product:

I've really enjoyed using the Bazura bags. They're cute and the medium bag is really roomy. Lots of room for lunch and snacks for the day. Being insulated, by including an ice pack I don't have to worry about fitting it in a crowded break room fridge.

5.0 Best thing ever!!

Comments about Product:

I am so happy with this lunch bag. It looks great, it's put together really well and I really feel like it's a great value. My favorite thing about it is the story behind it. People are always complimenting on the bag and I get to tell them the story. It's great to not only reuse the old juice boxes, but help other people provide for themselves and their community. This is going on my Christmas list to give to others.

5.0 Huge but very handy

Comments about Product:

I bought one of these for my older daughter at the beginning of the school year and it has lasted very well. I love that you don't have to be delicate about washing it. I haven't had any trouble with the zip. But it is enormous, which is a mixed blessing: you can fit any number of food items and, more importantly, ice packs in it, unlike the letter-sized box my other daughter had to put up with, but if you have something squashable, like a banana, it might get beaten up in the backpack. I bought a new one basically just for kicks for my first daughter, and to replace the too-small one for my second. They love the colors too.

5.0 Delicious!

Comments about Product:

This is my second Bazura lunch bag, as I sadly left the first one on a bench at the bus station. It was a no-brainer to buy a second one. I can't say that works well as an "insulated bag" (since I always put it in the fridge at work, I've never tested its ability to keep things hot or cold), but it's the perfect size for me - I can fit two Tupperware containers and an apple, yogurt, napkin, etc. I've found it to be very durable and easy to clean. Best of all it's sooo cute, and I get compliments wherever I go.

Comments about Product:

I got one for my oldest son last year, who was 11, and he loves it. It did however start to rip near the handle at the end of the year. He doesn't mind that and keeps using it becuase he likes it so much. I bought one this year for my youngest, and in the second week the lining inside cracked at the corner, and of course he had a major spill in the lunch box too. So the food leaked through this crack between the layers. The crack is too small to be able to clean it out, and water gets in and just sits there. So I checked our first bag and it too has cracks in the inner liner, but since there have been no major spills it hasn't been a huge issue. So we love the concept, and the size and the look, but the cracking liners and ripping handles mean I can't really rate it very highly

Great lunch bag. I have been using it this summer for beach trips - it is roomy enough to several sandwiches. I also really like that it is big enough for a frozen meal or the larger size tupperware - perfect for taking leftovers to work! It is also adorable and bright- mine is made of all orange drinks.

Comments about Product:

I have been using this bag for a while (maybe over a year now). It is generously sized, easy to clean, and sturdy. I don't know if it really insulates very well; my stuff always goes into a refrigerator as soon as I get to work. The biggest problem is the zipper. It was problematic from the beginning. I have to be very careful to prevent the 2 sides from separating. It is only a problem on one half of the bag. I would not recommend this for children.

Comments about Product:

I've gotten quite a few compliments on this bag at work. Since my family is from the Phillippines, I thought it was a cool way to keep the trash off the streets. I've seen the horrible amount of trash that accumulates there, the saddest in a lake that my dad learned to swim in. It's a nice size, and will hold a 12oz kleen kanteen, 2 sandwiches, 2 small apples, a tiny tub of grape tomatoes and a full size of salad dressing all at once. I was surprised that after leaving my lunch with a cold klean kanteen (full of water) in there for two hours, the kanteen was still very cold! I would suggest using this with an ice pack or other cold item if you know your lunch needs to stay cold. However, if you put it in the refrigerator, it will easily chill because it's not think or of a traditional insulating material. I love this bag! I put my utensils and napkin in the pocket inside, though you could use it to hold an ice pack. My only complaint is that yesterday, I noticed that the material used as trim was starting to fray in the back, where they had finished it off. I'm going to put some Fray Check on it, which works really well and you can find it in a crafts store. Or use nail polish. It is a little bit disappointing, but since it's an easy fix I am not very troubled by it. I can see this product lasting a long, long time! The other reviewers do mention that it is hard to zip around the corners; it's more like an annoyance than a hassle, though I also recommend not unzipping it all the way.

Comments about Product:

The medium Bazura bag is the perfect size for lunch - enough room for a to-go container or a couple of sandwiches, fruit, snacks, and a bottle of juice or soda. The rectangular shape and two sturdy handles make it easy to carry and store upright with little risk of spilling. It fits easily into the communal fridge at work without taking up too much space, and everyone comments on its fun appearance! Best of all, its made of re-purposed materials by a cooperative. What could be better?

Comments about Product:

These are great bags because not only are they cute but they employ those in need in a very polluted and poor country like the Philippines. I was born there so I definitely know this first hand. These bags are made with quality care although the zippers are a little awkward around the edges. Other than that, they were great, I bought one for myself and my sister for her birthday. She loves it too!

Comments about Product:

This has been a good size for my kindergartener (actually very roomy for him!) and a great size for days I pack lunch for my 3-yr old and myself. It feels a little less rugged than other packs, so I try not to yank on the zipper or anything. However, it folds up pretty flat to store, is bright and colorful, and lightweight. I am very happy with it so far (we have had it for about a month).

Very nice lunch bag. Fits everything that I may need for a decent sized lunch (i.e. 16oz. water bottle, small sandwich, bag of cookies). There's even a side pocket that allows me to keep my utensils and napkins dry. The only con I have is that the straps are too small. I can't seem to hold it comfortably on my arm because the straps aren't large enough.

Comments about Product:

It's a great bag-very stylish! I like the dimensions, too. There's enough room to put plastic containers, a food thermos and a SIGG water container. It's a little pricey, but in the end, worth it. My 6th grader likes the fact we're making an effort to reduce waste.

5.0 Great Lunch Bag!

Comments about Product:

Great Lunch Bag! It was slightly smaller than I had pictured it but still holds a ton of stuff. I love the fact that it is wide and shallow as appose to tall and deep. I also like telling people who ask about the unique bag the story of where it came from. It is a great way to get awareness out. Overall, a neat bag that is great for your lunch and the planet!

Comments about Product:

Love it! My bag looks like the one on display on this site. I was glad to see a little pocket in the inside to fit my chapstick, napkins, etc. It fits my water bottle and plenty of room for food, too. The bright orange is a great pick-me-up. I even had some tell me I should use it as a handbag! Would definitely order for gifts.

Comments about Product:

I really like the Medium Insulated Lunch bag I purchased recently. It is very sturdy and roomy, and I feel good knowing that the materials used to make it will not just add to the landfills. Many of my co-workers have commented on how unique it is, and several have taken the website address to order bags for themselves and as gifts.

Comments about Product:

This is definitely a "one of a kind" lunchbag and I'm thrilled with it. Handles are the perfect length for carrying. Holds my lunch and snacks for the day. Only drawback for me is that it is not wide enough to accomodate the tupperware I use to reheat leftovers.

I really like this item! It is large enough to pack an adult-sized lunch, and keeps my food cool. I haven't tried it for warm items yet. Plus the juice box design is really cute -- several of my coworkers have commented on it.

Very cute. MUCH bigger than the small size -- in fact, almost too big. Strange disparity. Seems to "weep" moisture a little ... put your ice or cold pack into another plastic bag before putting it in the lunch bag.

Comments about Product:

We absolutely love this bag! Our son uses it for his lunch box and it's much roomier than a standard sized lunch box. Not to mention it's one of a kind, recycled and woman owned coop made! We especially like that there is no leaching plastic around his food. It has also proven useful in educating other families about our choices. Everyone wins with this product.

5.0 I was thrilled with my purchase!

Comments about Product:

I was thrilled with my purchase! Initially I was somewhat concerned when I couldn't select a specific color for the bag as my daughter really wanted orange. I went ahead and ordered anyway, making sure to put a note in the special instructions section with my color request. Imagine how surprised I was when a box appeared on my doorstep just a couple of days later with the orange bag! I was thrilled! The bag is large enough for a very big lunch including drinks, utensils, etc. It is well made and, most importantly, cute! My daughter has another Basura bag she got from Jakarta and we always receive complements on it--I'm sure this bag will get the same complements! And I'm getting ready to buy another, smaller one! Thanks again!

Comments about Product:

I absolutely LOVE my Basura bag- the medium size is big enough to hold my lunch and my Kleen Kanteen, along with an ice pack. The pattern I got (randomly, of course) is absolutely adorable. The insulation on this bag isn't the best- it's really only slightly insulated by the material that the juice containers are made of- but it does keep my lunch reasonably cold for a few hours- and I keep it in the fridge when I can. Overall, this is a wonderful product and I highly suggest it! I get compliments on mine all the time! And you certainly can't beat the social and environmental benefits of buying one of these bags.

I have really enjoyed using my basura bag. It has replaced the plastic grocery bags I was using to carry my lunch everyday and I am especially happy about my decreased use of such bags. It has plenty of space for my lunch and a snack. Everyone who sees it is intrigued and I tell them where I purchased it.

Comments about Product:

We bought the medium insulated lunch bags for our daughters to use to carry lunches to camp and school. They have been a big hit! They are fun and colorful, and great conversation starters (at least for my 8 year old!). My only problem has been the zippers are a little hard to close if you unzip them all the way. We solved this problem by simply not unzipping the bags completely to fill them. They have tons of room for all the different containers of food my daughters like to take, and are easy for them to carry. A small pouch for an ice pack would be a nice addition.

Comments about Product:

I bought this lunch bag because I love the back story. The bright colors are great and it certainly stands out. The medium size is also great because I can squeeze in a lot of reusable plastic containers. BUT I wouldn't necessarily call it insulated. My ice pack sweats through the side of the lunch bag and the inside of the bag doesn't stay very cold... I guess it stays colder than a paper sack, but it definitely doesn't compare to other insulated lunch bags from LL Bean, Eddie Bauer, etc. Buy it for the back story and looks, but not to keep food super cold.

Comments about Product:

These bags are the hit of the daycare. The teachers all want them for themselves. I can't review how well they insulate since I haven't tested it myself. They're actual juice box liners stitched together using a complimentary colored edging. I didn't notice it in the description but they have a plastic pocket sewn along the long side - good for one of those soft flexible ice packs or to keep napkins or papers dry. Another nice touch is that the come with two zippers. I love how easy they are to clean. I think the only thing that would make these bags better is a detachable shoulder strap.
