FOR THE LOVE OF OUR ENVIRONMENT
Oasis Bags was founded in Canada in 1989 with two fundamental beliefs: to provide environmentally friendly and sustainable packaging alternatives; and to supply socially responsible certified products. Founders Laurie and Robin Maloni were both very passionate about the environment and had strong business backgrounds on which to base this endeavor. After a great deal of research and designing, Oasis Bags launched their first line of bags. Retailers were initially hesitant about the concept of customers paying for reusable bags, but Oasis Bags stayed determined to get their products into the market.
As awareness for the environment grew in the media, recycling technologies became more efficient. As a result, Oasis Bags discovered a way to create bags out of post-consumer plastic. Our product line began including a wide variety of recycled, recyclable, biodegradable and organic bags.

We have integrated environmentally friendly practices into our daily office operations, including recycling, composting, car-pooling, and buying sustainable supplies.
We still strive to obtain all necessary certifications and pass auditing to ensure truly environmentally friendly and socially responsible products to pass onto our customers. Our bags have been rigorously tested, our production facilities have been inspected and we have followed stringent guidelines to get where we are today.
We pride ourselves on our close relationships with our customers from beginning to delivery. It is important to us that our customers get the ideal end product, something that they are proud to put their name on.
