Due to the success of VOYA's 2021 summer tote bag, we have brought it back with a new look & smooth feel for 2022.
Think Sun, Sea & Mindful Reflection!
This Tote Shopper is ethically made with 300g organic cotton, which has a 100 % natural fibre. It is a greener and non-toxic option as organic cotton is grown without any pesticides, uses less water, energy, and has less impact on air pollution.
Starting this July, we have a limited number of these totes to give away with any web orders of €100.00/£85.00 or more.
The Benefits of Tote Bags
The classic tote is a popular stable that everyone should have to hand and here's why.
Alternative to Plastic Bags
Investing in a reusable bag is a step towards a more eco-friendly lifestyle. Single-use plastic bags are used and discarded in high volumes, they can take up to 1000 years to decompose. Making the switch will save you money and help reduce your carbon footprint.
Natural and Bio-Degradable
This bag is ethically made with 300g organic cotton, which is a 100 % natural fiber. It is a greener and non-toxic option as organic cotton is grown without any pesticides, uses less water, energy, and has less impact on air pollution. Tote bags also participate to keep oceans clean and saving wild animals, the first victims of plastic bags.
Convenient and Efficient
This accessory is perfect for any occasion to carry your everyday essentials from traveling to work, to shopping, to the beach to a night out on the town and everything in-between. Plus the lighter fabric makes it an ideal material for storing garments and goods.
Durable and Long-Lasting
You don’t have to worry that the bag will break or tear. The cotton plant’s cellular structure is very strong, which contributes to its durability and resistance. This tote bag can carry up to 15 kg. They are easily cleaned when they are dirty, just wash them like your clothes and air dry. If cared for, they can be used and reused for years.
Support Irish and Local
As a society, we are re-evaluating the way we shop. People are becoming conscious about their purchasing habits with a growing interest in purpose-based brands that embody social good. Buying local builds a connection between the producer and the product. It makes the experience personal and increases awareness about all the hard work that goes into making something. Supporting Irish businesses can have significant benefits for our communities and economy.
VOYA are passionate about promoting a wellness lifestyle for people and the planet. All of our products are organic, clean, green, paraben-free, cruelty-free, and do not harm the environment. You can feel good and know that you are doing good too.
We are dedicated to supporting our customers on their sustainability journey, that's why we have partnered with Conor Merriman to offer you the chance to get this stylish, sustainable, and sturdy bag so you’re sure to stand out wherever you go!
Collaborating with Conor on this limited edition tote was an easy decision for VOYA, as we feel strongly about supporting Irish artists. Last years tote design was snapped up in record time & such was the demand, we have increased the quantity this year to avoid disappointment.
Conor’s artwork and illustrations have been featured worldwide and we are delighted to bring you an exclusive opportunity to bag one of these beautiful unique prints.
“VOYA's ethics resonated with me for a multitude of reasons. I am very fortunate in my career to be able to turn down work that does not align with being world friendly and VOYA came out on top. Knowing how important sustainability is to them along with their environmental stance was very important and it further made the work we did together that much richer.” - Conor Merriman
