Sharon, our CEO and Founder, was recently interviewed for a Podcast for B the Change Media.

Eco-Bags Products has been in business for 26 years and Sharon has seen a lot. She didn’t start out as a business person. She was an actress living in NYC with her husband, Blake, a musician. She started the company when her son (and first child) Julian was born… back in 1989.

She wanted to build something of value. We hope listening will inspire you to follow your dreams of building what you want to see in the world.


“Sharon Rowe, founder and CEO of ECOBAGS®. ECOBAGS® was one of the first brands to market with their reusable tote bags, founded in 1989 in NYC. I have had the pleasure to get to know Sharon over the last few years as a part of the Hudson Valley and NYC B Corp communities. And what inspires me about Sharon is not just that she started a for profit solution based approach to environmental activism, but she also did that while raising kids, pursuing her acting career and still takes vacations.”
