It started with a simple idea – save more plastic bags from being wasted by creating a reusable one that people actually want to carry. Making them cute, foldable, and affordable was the goal, but Junes realized early on that they could do more.
Junes has created their own recycling program to keep old reusable bags from ending up in a landfill, and this work has led them launching a revolutionary new fabric that is made from recycled plastic and won’t last forever in the environment.
Founder, Janean Mann, launched Junes in dedication to helping the women of Juarez, weaving the mission into the very fabric of their bags. They've partnered with an all-female sewing co-op there to help women sustainably support their families and donate a portion of all sales to the Global Fund for Women to empower and protect women from gender-based violence. Caring about women’s rights and the future of the planet go hand in hand and as creators, they see it as their obligation to ensure every single thing they bring into this world moves it in the right direction, and they're committed to that, always.
