Scot and Jacquline are the husband and wife co-founders of State bags.
Back in 2009 they were running non-profit camps for kids growing up in some of New York’s most underfunded neighborhoods. They noticed a disturbing trend of kids bringing their belongings in ripped trash bags.
That’s when State bags were born.
Their mission is to make beautiful, well-made, inclusively cool products while using the power of business to give back and shift narratives around social injustices.
They’ve teamed up with the likes of Beyonce, Barack Obama and the Star Wars team to fuel their vision of supporting American children and families in need.
Giving initiatives include donating fully-packed backpacks at their signature bag drop rallies, fueling #WhatDoWeTellTheKids activations and special projects with partner charities and schools in which we so deeply believe.
As State's platform continues to grow they want to shed light on the social injustices happening every day in the US.
In 2016, they launched our #WhatDoWeTellTheKids initiatives which aimed to tackle the most challenging issues of our time by simply asking the question, "what do we tell the kids?"
State Bags is proud to be a Benefit Corporation, accompanied by fellow companies creating public significance by having a material, positive impact on society
