Reusable Bags on the Town For a Great Cause

This past week some students from St. Matthew Catholic School in San Mateo, CA (right in Mixed Bag Designs’ backyard!) showed off their favorite reusable bags to promote their school fundraiser. We loved the shots so much we had to share! You can support St Matthew Catholic by clicking here: www.mixedbagdesigns.com/stmatthewcath – every bag purchased helps!

Celebrating our Mixed Bag Designs Warehouse Team

Our company just simply wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for our incredibly hard-working and dedicated warehouse team. This week we wanted to recognize some of our all-stars with a fun incentive game for the whole warehouse team. Each day we recognize one person who has gone above and beyond the ordinary work requirements and reward them with a day to relax in a state-of-the-art massage chair at every break. Today, James was able to enjoy some snacks and a relaxing break from the daily grind. Thank you James for helping us through tight spots and training new members of the Mixed Bag Designs warehouse team!Mixed Bag Designs Warehouse TeamMixed Bag Designs Warehouse Team
