Run Run Run Malibu Tote, $22.50
The philosophy at Run Run Run is to help make the world a safer, cleaner place through superior design. The line is environmentally friendly and promotes better treatment of our planet.

Unfortunately, plastic bags are not typically recycled; end up in landfills and in our oceans where both animals and humans are negatively affected. We believe there is a better way. Run Run Run donates a percentage of its sales to organizations that are committed to these ideals and in improving the quality of living on our planet. This includes the Surfrider Foundation, the Plastic Pollution Coalition and 1% for the Planet.
