PORTLAND, Maine, June 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Sea Bags, the Maine-based designer and manufacturer of stylish bags, totes, and accessories made from recycled sail cloth, is excited to announce its new partnership with Life is Good, the original positive lifestyle and apparel brand. This is the premier partnership between two New England brands, and the first of many future collections.
"We have long respected the Life is Good brand. As a New England-based company founded on optimism and giving back to the community, Life is Good's values naturally align with our guiding principles and culture at Sea Bags," said Beth Shissler, President of Sea Bags. "Their art and messaging is an incredible complement to our products, and both companies are equally committed to spreading positivity via Sea Bags sustainable, made-in-USA products."
The new Sea Bags + Life is Good collection features a curated selection of original Life is Good designs reimagined onto Sea Bags' recycled sail cloth bags, totes, and accessories. The Ogunquit Beach Tote, Beachcomber Bucket, and various wine bag designs round out the core collection, helping customers spread good vibes this summer.

"We're proud to partner with a brand that believes in our message of spreading positivity and optimism which is needed now in our country more than ever."
Earlier this spring, the two brands partnered to share a common goal of spreading positivity to those who needed it most. The "Healthcare Heroes" collection honored those working on the frontlines against COVID-19. Additionally, the new "Graduation Class of '20 Strong" collection commemorates and champions the graduating classes of 2020.
The first rollout of the Sea Bags + Life is Good collaboration is available now at www.seabags.com, www.lifeisgood.com and in select Sea Bags and Life is Good retail stores. Additional pieces from the collaboration will be made available throughout the summer.
