What is Utrechts Tassie?
Utrechts Tassie is a project designed to turn used newspapers and cardboard boxes into shopping bags. Tassies means bags ala Utrecht.
These bags will be used by shops in Utrecht and will be handed out to their customers.
Each tassie bears our motto – Make the World Cool Again.
The makers behind the Tassies
The Tassies are made by volunteers who want to give their time for a good cause and work with people who share the same ideals.
Marina is our first volunteer. All bags are hand-made in heart Utrecht!

Producing a new shopping bag has an environmental cost.
Fossil fuel is used to make plastic. Trees are cut for paper… Even recycled paper needs fossil fuel to be remade.
By choosing Utrechts Tassie, shops can lessen their environmental impact: they are produced locally, it promotes circular economy and lessens the carbon footprint.
And when you walk the streets with the tassie, you can help create awareness about climate change and influence others.
