Bassi Market Tote
1 Bassi Market Tote takes 3.5 pounds of PET plastic off the landfill
The Goodee Bassi Market Tote in solid colors is made from 100% recycled PET plastic — the plastic commonly used to make single-use water bottles. rPET is a fabric that’s resistant, soft to the touch, and more importantly, kind to our planet.
The rPET fabric we use is made from recycled PET bottles sourced in Central and Eastern Europe. Once collected, sorted, and cleaned, the plastic is shredded into small chips, which are melted and spun into yarn-like fiber in a specialized plant in Italy. The yarn is then dyed — using earth-friendly dyes — and woven in Spain by our environmentally-conscious supplier, Comertex.
The environmental impact of producing rPET is much lower than it is for virgin polyester, which is derived from petroleum: It uses between 30 and 50% less energy, fewer natural resources, and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. What’s more, rPET can be recycled over and over again with almost no degradation of quality.
The Bassi exemplifies meticulous craftsmanship and practical design, and comes in 3 vibrant color options. Which one will you choose?
Our planet is literally overflowing with plastic with approximately 22 million kilograms dumped into our oceans daily. By making better choices, using mindful consumption and using our purchasing power to create positive change, we can build a better future.
Responsibly handcrafted by refugees in Italy, the Bassi preserves and celebrates traditional artisanship while providing meaningful work ...
