Shop Onya products here including mesh produce bags, reusable shopping bags, bread bag, and bulk food bags. Onya products are predominantly made using rPET fabric made from recycled plastic bottles, so with each purchase you are helping to clear wasteful plastic from landfill and the oceans.
The idea for Onya began in 2004. Founding father Jon Brousson was asking himself how he could create meaningful change in his community by reducing the prevalence of single use plastic. Every day, Jon found himself confronted by out of control plastic waste with disposable shopping bags being a major contributor. With a little ingenuity and few sewing skills, Jon created Onya’s first reusable shopping bag. He proudly used his shopping bag at every opportunity – at the supermarket, farmers market or just shopping for anything that would require a bag, and pretty soon people were asking him to create one for them too.
Onya has since grown into a company that prides itself on creating high quality, useful, reusable products for your everyday life that can easily be kept ‘On You’. Their excellent range includes shopping bags, produce bags, backpacks & coffee cups, and stainless steel drink bottles. The products are responsibly made in China, and wherever possible are not only 100% recyclable, but also made out of recycled material such as rPET, a fabric produced from recycled plastic water bottles.
The Onya team are passionate about making a difference. They offer their customers a well thought out quality alternative to single use plastic. Their moto is why wait for tomorrow when we can take action today?
We love Onya's entire product range and fully support their mission to create a waste free world.

The reusable produce bags are an easy alternative for single use plastic fruit and vegetable bags when shopping, and are also great for buying bulk produce such as nuts. If you're hoping to attain a closer to zero waste lifestyle then you need to stock up on these. They are crafted from special rPet fabric made from recycled plastic drink bottles. They are light and deceptively strong and can hold up to 2 kilos of produce. They feature a gussett and drawsting tie, and weigh 10 grams per bag so they barely register on a scale, and the see through mesh bags allow shop assistants to know exactly what is inside your produce bag at a glance.
The reusable Bread Bag is made from up to 10x recycled plastic drink bottles and is designed to replace single use paper or plastic bread bags, plastic toggles and ties. It is also perfect to use as storage for the home baker. Simply bake, allow your loaf to cool, slice and store or freeze in your reusable bread bag. The bread bag measures 41cm long x 27.5cm wide and includes a 10cm gussett to allow for high top loaves up to 16cm high to fit. (Please watch product videos for further information on Bread Maker loaves). They have been made to Australian Bakers Industry Standards.
The reusable shopping bags are made from rPet material – recycled plastic drink bottles. The bags are super strong and they are often capable of holding far more than you may be able to carry! They are lightweight and incredibly compact, folding up into a pouch the size of your fist so convenient to carry and keep in your bag or car. They also feature a sturdy carabiner clip so you can clip your shopping bag onto your handbag or belt.
Bulk Food Bags
Bulk food shopping is a great way to reduce waste in your life, but sometimes either remembering to carry big jars around with you can be very inconvenient. Which is why the bulk food bags are great! Easy to transport, the compact bags allow you to head into a bulk food shop, fill up your bags, and top up your pantry containers and jars when you get home. They are designed in a vintage style, are BPA free, made from rPET food safe material made from recycled plastic drink bottles. The shopping tote boasts a double lined base and extra wide square gusset making it perfect for transporting bulk foods in both bags and jars. And the food bags feature the tare weight of the bag in both ounces and grams and they also have a clear window made of non-toxic, BPA & chlorine free PEVA. This window allows you to not only easily see what is inside your bag, but you can also write in that window the product, as well as any unique codes you may need when checking out.
