Questions About the Cause

What’s the cause? Who is Baby2Baby?
Starting Oct. 8-15, Apolis will release their customizable and ethically handcrafted Petite Market Bag in black – it’s limited edition and only available for one week. Each tote will help Baby2Baby provide a day’s worth of diapers to children in need. Today, there are 1 in 3 families in America who can’t afford diapers for their babies. It’s such a simple need, yet so many people are forced to choose between diapers or food, and that’s not okay. The team at Baby2Baby works tirelessly to provide basic essentials to children living in poverty. And we can help! Learn more about 501(c)(3) nonprofit Baby2Baby.

Why only one week all year?
Well, simply put, Apolis is BCorp Certified and our bags are made at a specific co-op in Bangladesh that is committed to providing certified Fair Trade wages, annual profit dividends, and a retirement fund to 200+ mothers — which means that quantities are often limited. We’re currently in the process of expanding our production capabilities, but we’re committed to doing so in a way that doesn’t put pressure on this cooperative  to cut corners in quality or ethical sourcing — though that means we can’t offer all our bags at all times of the year. Watch how this bag is breaking a poverty cycle.

Questions About the Bag

What are the dimensions of the bag?
The bag is 12.5″ wide, 9.5″ high, 5.5″ deep, 3.5″ drop, with a 5″ x 6″ interior pocket for your keys or small wallet. It has 3.5” drop with vegetable tanned & ethically sourced black leather handle that is reinforced by antique nickel rivets, allowing the bag to hold well over 75 pounds. Plus, the interior is water-resistant, making it easy to wipe clean if a spill should happen.

Will the black rub off or fade?
The bags are dyed and dried with natural materials and we guarantee the black dye will not rub off onto you clothes. The average bag lasts for 8-years and fading is very limited.

How much is the bag? What’s Afterpay?
The bag costs $58 USD, which you can also pay it in four biweekly installments of $14.50 USD each through Afterpay (with no interest if paid within that time). You can read details on Afterpay here.

Why is the bag $58?
The $58 cost reflects not just the customizable printed phrase of your choice, Fair Trade-certified wages and profit dividends for the women who make the bag, but a bag that is built to be durable and reliable for the long haul! Plus, each tote will help Baby2Baby provide a day’s worth of diapers to children in need (not just the black tote, but every Apolis bag) during this campaign, from October 8-15th.

More details on the bag:
* Lasts on average 8 years,  returns accepted within 30 days of  receipt with 100% money back quality guarantee
* Features your customized phrase (great for gifts!)
* Water-resistant interior that’s easy to wipe clean
* Benefits the Bangladeshi moms who craft each bag

Where is the bag made?
Every bag is handcrafted in Bangladesh by mothers who receive Fair Trade-certified wages, annual profit dividends, and a retirement fund; read Forbes.com’s article on how this approach is changing people’s lives, with 565,000 bag owners and counting. The bags are then shipped to Los Angeles, California, where a growing team of 13 people print one-of-a-kind customizations onto the bag. Watch how this bag is breaking a poverty cycle.
