Beyond Bags’ founder story

Beyond Bags founder is vegan, having turned vegetarian at 15 years old upon finding out about new factory farming methods from her father, a retired dairyman. She became vegan after the birth of her daughter, when her own breastfeeding led to an outpouring of empathy for the plight of dairy cows repeatedly impregnated and then separated from their calves for the purpose of producing milk for humans. As a business woman, who has struggled to obtain high quality vegan merchandise, she started Beyond Bags in 2016 with a view to addressing the needs of vegan consumers that are poorly served by the traditional bags and accessories marketplace.

The Beyond Bags logo represents the harmony with nature obtained by living by vegan principles, which reduce pain and suffering and the environmental foot print. The circular sweeps represent the beauty of the natural landscape that we seek to conserve and protect, and the heart at the center the love that we have for all animals.
