Ethical Conference Bags Made in Canada

As a social enterprise, we pride ourselves on being as self-sufficient as possible. Through our paid contracts with companies and organizations, we are able to fund our ongoing programs that transition women to employment. EcoEquitable is home to an onsite production room that is powered by women who have graduated from our award-winning Sewing for Jobs program.

EcoEquitable is your source of locally made, ethically sourced, recycled material corporate gifts. Our conference and promotional bags come in various materials. They are perfect for conference bags, gift bags, or to use as grocery totes. We have a variety of styles and can customize as needed. We work with a printer to ensure that your logo or message is printed to your specifications.

Every year, EcoEquitable recycles approximately 10,000 pounds of fabric. By using preferentially recycled materials, we save it from ending up in landfills. We welcome you to drop by our studio in Vanier to see samples of our work at 404 McArthur Avenue, Suite 200.

What Others Are Saying

“We just received the bags and we absolutely LOVE it! They totally embrace UNESCO’s ideals of social inclusion and sustainable development ….AND they look fantastic! Our delegates from across the world will surely appreciate them.”
Joëlle Tremblay, United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO)

“We were looking for something special to give to our members to mark CHFT’s 40th anniversary. We approached EcoEquitable to see if they could do conference bags for us. Anouk was wonderful to work with! She was able to find creative ways to produce beautiful bags within our limited budget. We were even more impressed when a board member agreed to put the bags in the trunk of her car for her drive back to Toronto. This saved us any shipping costs. Our members were very impressed with the quality of the bags and were pleased that we had been able to give them something made in Canada. EcoEquitable is doing important work and producing a great product!”
Mary Ann Hannat, Co-operative Housing Federation of Toronto

“Hello EcoEquitable, just wanted to let you know that the conference bags were a great success. Everyone was impressed with them. They looked superb and held an amazing amount of “swag”. As Social Workers we are so pleased to be able to support such a worthy organization such as yours that helps to empower women experiencing barriers to employment. Thank you so much again for the great bags.”
Jane Carson, Canadian Association of Nephrology Social Workers

“The conference bags made by EcoEquitable were such a hit! And when people realized that not only were they getting a high quality bag, but they were supporting a great organization as well – they were twice as impressed. I had two participants contact me because they wanted contact info so they could purchase bags for their own conferences. And the best thing was getting a phone call from the sponsors who were thrilled with how well the organization was visible on the bags. Thank you EcoEquitable!”
Susan Phillips, Canadian Education and Research Institute for Counselling (CERIC)
