About the brand
Our Conscious Initiative
Garbags strongly believes that inspiration can come from the right balance between ecology, quality and design.
Our work is the result of intense research, experimentation and technical development since 2011. Even more, it is the result of a different perspective on the World and every object surrounding us, an ecological look full of creativity and respect for Nature. To inspire people and companies to think about the waste they create in everyday life and start seeing it in a different light. Garbags offers a unique and practical way for people looking for ways to be more environmentally friendly by offering a series of products individually cut and handmade in Portugal.
We believe environment, society and business can coexist but we go further: we make it happen!
Garbags products are made from materials that were originally used to hold coffee, pet food, milk, potato chips and others. Since these packages were first designed to hold 2-5 kg they are strong and durable enough to be turned into fashion items. Garbags wants to bring the upcycling process closer to people by providing them a practical and fun collection of strong products made with a certain type of packages easily recognized by everyone! We have already passed the round number of 250 000 packages saved from landfill! People are invited to donate their used packages at our shops and become a Garbags Donator. We also have a local collecting system powered by our staff that collects used packages from cafés, bars, restaurants, local associations and events!
