By purchasing this satchel, you will remove 2 kg of marine debris from the ocean.

The Natural Satchel features inside pockets, a laptop sleeve, stationery pockets, an inside zipped pocket and an adjustable strap.

Subs' satchels are made from 23 post-consumer recycled PET plastic bottles combined with jute natural fibres, combining to make a 100% recycled and upcyclable tote bag. The recycled PET in this bag is colourless allowing the natural colours of the jute fibers to shine through.

Dimensions: Length 36 x Height 24 x Width 12 cm.

Plastic waste that is otherwise bound for landfills is one of the main components of recycled plastic that we currently source for Subs' jandals, totes & satchels, mostly coming from commercial, post-consumer, industrial plastic waste, and some that we recover directly from the ocean.

The plastic that we recover from our beach cleaning efforts that is recyclable is sent for sorting and further processing by third-party companies and combined with commercial and industrial plastic waste from sources such as hospitals (vinyl gloves), construction (wire casing and pipes) which is all processed together in a circular economy to make Subs formula pellets ready for injection moulding.

We use RPVC (recycled PVC) & RPCU (recycled PCU) in our jandals and RPET (recycled PET) in our bags.

Recycle your jandals, thongs, flip-flops, slops, whatever you call them in your country, when your Subs are worn out beyond use, and that will take ages, you can send them back to us for recycling. We have the ability to take old pairs, grind them up into pellets again, put them back through the plastic injection machinery and make brand new pairs. Now, that's what we call sustainable!

Natural Satchel


Behind the Brand


Our story starts in Kyle, Mid Canterbury, New Zealand in the late 1980s, where we grew up on a farm with cliffs overlooking the South West Pacific Ocean. Back then it was clear to us how our beaches were being affected by plastic waste, with fish and bird corpses constantly washing up ashore, mixed in with plastic waste from fishing nets, bottles and caps.

Now, this problem affects the entire world and its food supply, with an estimated 5.2 trillion pieces of plastic in the world's oceans, of which 269,000 tons float on the surface. After being in the footwear industry for 7 years we realised we were in a position to do something about this, and the idea was born to create a product that could sustain the reduction of plastic in our ocean ecosystems, and recycled plastic in general, by using that plastic as footwear.

We aim to prevent and reduce plastic waste by transforming it into high-performance, recycled plastic flip-flops. Subs flip-flops are super comfy to wear, highly durable, upcyclable and environmentally friendly! Our jandal, tote & satchel bag range are made of recycled plastic sourced partly from beach cleans, post-consumer waste plastic, plus commercial and industrial plastic waste recycling, and we pledge to remove one kilo (2.20 lb) of marine debris from our ocean ecosystems for every pair sold.

Our impact to date: 176,712 kg or 389,583 lb of marine debris removed from our ocean ecosystems.
