About

We’re here because we believe in what we’re making. We think little changes add up over time. That’s why our products are designed with sustainability in mind. Whether it’s the day-to-day trip to the grocery store, or the impromptu weekend getaway, we go where you go.

Our responsibility

It’s not breaking news that plastic is killing the earth.

Our dream is to take the bad things in the world and put them to good use. We’ve created all of our products with recycled polyester made from plastic bottles. And it can be recycled again at the end of its life. We’re interested in long-term solutions knowing that human life will be here for years to come.

glob origin

The Earth is not a globe it’s a glob. Simply put, the minds behind Glob realized that there is no single or perfect answer.

The story starts at the Graf Lantz studio in Los Angeles, which was founded by Holger Graf and Daniel Lantz and inspired by Holger’s German heritage and Daniel’s love for the Japanese ideas of less, but better. While developing and improving the assortment at Graf Lantz, VP of Sales & Marketing, Kim Christenson realized that in order for people to really break their addiction to plastic bags that reusable bags need to be more functional, always ready and way better looking.

Noticing a gap in the market, she and industry veteran Louis Terline was encouraged to explore new sustainable materials, and use the Graf Lantz platform to make real strides towards doing better for the company and the consumer- and Glob was born.

The Facts

8 billion tons

According to a report from the Guardian, an estimated 8.3 billion tons of plastic have been produced since the 1950s — that’s equivalent to the weight of more than 800,000 Eiffel Towers and only 9% of it has been recycled.

1 million bottles

1 MILLION PLASTIC BOTTLES ARE BOUGHT AROUND THE WORLD EVERY MINUTE, A REPORT BY THE GUARDIAN FOUND, AND THIS NUMBER IS SET TO INCREASE BY ANOTHER 20% BY 2021 IF WE DON’T ACT. THE SAME REPORT SAID MORE THAN 480 BILLION PLASTIC DRINKING BOTTLES WERE PURCHASED IN 2016 ACROSS THE WORLD — UP FROM 300 BILLION A DECADE AGO.

12 minutes average

The average time that a plastic bag is used for is … 12 minutes. Yep, that’s right — they’re used for an average of 12 minutes and then take up to a thousand years to decompose.
