The most sustainable bag is the one you have already. Purchasing a new bag should be your last resort but when you do purchase one you should get a bag made by a company that uses sustainable materials, a transparent manufacturing process, ethical treatment of workers, and a company that gives back.
The most eco-friendly sustainable materials are organic cotton, hemp, jute, cork, bamboo, recycled plastic, or fruit leathers. These are the most sustainable materials for a handbag because they are renewable, recyclable, and biodegradable.
