TerraPax bag materials are selected for their sustainability and minimum dependence on petrochemicals; their ability to be reaped for generations with little or no detrimental effects to the ecosystem. Essentially these are agricultural products that are produced organically. Our Hemp shell fabric is as durable as many synthetic nylon fabrics but does not have as many hidden costs associated with its manufacturing. in other words; it will carry your goods effectively through life without taxing the environment. Sure, it may cost a little more than a synthetic bag, but there is nothing to come between you and your outdoor experience. And if our economy is ever adjusted to reflect the actual cost of resources, TerraPax products will be one of the least expensive items you can buy.

Because no system is 100% sustainable, additional energy must be added. Restoration is the process of restoring a system to its original state. At TerraPax this means taking responsibility for the entire lifecycle four materials and products. Any TerraPax materials that are not compostable (hence restorative to the earth) will be reused in future production. We will offer the customer a 20% discount on a new TerraPax product for the return of this hardware, essentially purchasing back these materials.
Sustainability means taking care of our needs without sacrificing the needs of future generations. Concerning physical development and production, this means not adversely affecting the soil, air, or water. The plants that produce our fiber must grow without agrochemicals that have detrimental effects on the communities and ecosystems that come in contact with them. Technically speaking nothing is sustainable. Entropy is at work in our environment and eventually takes its toll on every system. Some systems, however, require very little in the way of input to keep them producing, or need solar input that is as close to sustainable energy as is available. Agricultural products, when produced organically with sufficient biomass returned to the soil can, in theory, be harvested continually with little long-term degradation to conditions or yield. Sustainability is what we hope to achieve for our selections of materials.
