We started STNKY as a way to keep your fitness and gym clothes separate from your personal items after a workout, with the added bonus of not having to touch your gear when you toss it in the wash because the STNKY bag has a wash net built right in. Now, STNKY washable bags are used widely by runners, gym buffs, travelers, boaters, swimmers, and even nurses so they can conveniently transport and wash their dirty scrubs.
Our company values impact how we produce, distribute and sell STNKY Bags. We care about the environment, North American manufacturing, fair labor and fair trade. We’re based in Arvada, Colorado and STNKY bags are made at a factory that we own in Mexico. Our employees are paid above a livable wage for their work. We make everything we can in-house and everything that we source meets fair trade criteria. Our materials are as environmentally friendly as possible and we use recycled materials as much as possible throughout our processes. Our focus on distribution has targeted markets where we can replace single-use plastics like those commonly used in gyms for towels, swimsuits and sweaty gear.
Most bags are too bulky to carry everywhere. Carrying your sweaty gym clothes in your backpack next to your lunch or laptop isn’t ideal either. Nurses stuffing their scrubs into a grocery bag to transport them to their laundry room is a hassle too. Apart from not being practical, these options don’t do well locking in smells or germs and they’re usually a hassle to wash.
After countless sketches, prototypes and tests, here it is: the STNKY Bag. Quick, versatile, clean and easy. Now that we’ve been selling STNKY Bags since April of 2019, we took your valuable feedback and the new bags are available right now. They’re extremely durable, environmentally friendly, and still come with a full 2 year warranty.
Bye bye stink, hello STNKY!
