Remarkably designed. Responsibly manufactured.

Our bags are carefully crafted with a proprietary blend of marine plastic and Rothy’s signature thread, which is spun from single-use water bottles (45+ million and counting!).


A plastic problem.

Roughly 8 million tons of
plastic waste escapes into the
oceans each year.


Where to start.

Plastic waste in the ocean often
comes from coastal communities
without formal recycling programs.


A sea of change.

To make the biggest impact,
our marine plastic comes
from high-risk beaches
and environments.

Bags by Rothy’s are knit with 100% recycled materials. We blend our signature thread—spun from water bottles—with marine plastic collected within 30 miles of coastlines and marine environments.
