Give Back Pack
Introducing Scot Tatelman and State Bags
It is truly great when you can buy a fantastic product for yourself and at the same time give a fantastic product to someone in need. This is exactly what happens when you purchase a bag from this week’s Boiling Point guest.
Scot Tatelman and his wife Jacqueline are the co-founders of State Bags, which is a one for one bag brand based out of New York City. Similar to companies like TOMS Shoes, for every State bag that is sold, State donates a fully stocked backpack to an American child in need; truly a win-win.
But this is not even close to where the giving stops for this philanthropic couple. In fact, the whole idea for State bags came from another cause that is close to their heart. Scot and Jacqueline have a passion for providing summer camp to under privileged, inner-city children. They noticed that when campers were settling in to camp, many would bring their items in plastic garbage bags, an observation that while truly heartbreaking, provided the inspiration for State Bags.
But this isn’t even where the story ends, so check out this episode of the Boiling Point to see how business can truly make positive impact.
