“I wanted to make a product that could be used by the whole human race and potentially solve some real problems,” Baker continues. This commitment to design as an agent of positive change is exemplified by their signature product: a waterproof, industrial-strength tote called the LastBag. It’s an everyday product made so sturdily that “it’s the last bag you’ll ever need,” Donovan says. "We truly believe," Baker says,"that design can create better systems and better outcomes" for both the product we make and the people we serve.
Evergreen teamed up with Methow-based manufacturing company eqpd — pronounced like “equipped” — to offer membership and an Evergreen LastBag for $60, with the entire profit going to Evergreen.
