Customer Reviews

Bella doesn’t go on any adventures without her Ploys Tote bag anymore! Great for any activity specially the beach as sand just brushes right off. Also lots of room to store plenty of toys... or other needed items. Would recommend highly!

Emily Kruger

Absolutely love my tote bag from Ploys! So well made and fantastic to know that the material is all recycled. Thank you!

Sue Holley

Love my Ploys! Just ordered Wet/Dry bags for new mama’s to be…they are large and perfect for wet and dirty clothes. I got the messenger bag for myself because I’m tired of worrying if my bag is going to be ruined in the rain. Great quality and lovely owner. Get yours!

Deanne Levy

I love my new Ploys tote bag. Such a handy size. I will be showing it off to all my friends!

I love my Monstera Tote Bag! Fabulous quality and design. Such a good idea to upcycle these old pool toys. I will definitely be buying more when I need them. ☺️
