About Our Mission

Who We Are

Colony Co. was founded in 2017 by Laura and Dave Soutee, a husband-and-wife team from the midwestern U.S. They were unsatisfied with the poor quality of all the reusable shopping bags they had used, so they decided to make their own. Just a few years later, their small family business has very much exceeded their expectations with over 400,000 bags sold! Colony Co. is now on a mission to help people live without single-use plastics, and will continue to develop new innovative and sustainable products. The time for change is now and we hope we can make the transition just a little easier with well-made creatively designed items you will enjoy using for many years to come.

What We Do

We make goods for sustainable living. We put an emphasis on durability because a reusable item only benefits our environment when it can withstand the wear-and-tear of everyday use for many years. We value organic farming and production, because toxic chemicals like pesticides harm all of nature, including us humans. (Most of our items already have organic certification, and we will be 100% organic certified by April 2020!) You can buy our products with confidence, knowing you are getting unmatched quality from a company who cares. Please reach out to us with any question or issue. We love to hear from the good people who use the stuff we make.
