Parashopper: the convenient alternative to the plastic shopping bag
Nowadays plastic bags are no longer free or even forbidden, in order to reduce litter in the environment and the plastic soup in the oceans. A magnificent endeavor we strongly support. And that we practice with the parashopper of parachute fabric, a handy foldable shopping bag to always have with you. Smart and beautiful for a cleaner world!

Made of lightweight parachute fabric
The parashopper is a reusable shopping bag made of parachute silk. For this, the remainders of the production of our (travel) hammocks are used.
Four colour combinations
That's why we made these bags in the same colour combinations as four of the hammocks:
● Ocean: turquoise, teal and green
● Camouflage: olive green, khaki and army green
● Sunset: red, orange and yellow
● Relaxzz: light gray-blue-dark gray
Lots of space and strong construction
With its dimensions of 47 X 38 cm, this shopper offers a lot of room for groceries or, for example, swimming gear. The construction is very solid, with contrasting seams and edges, enabling this bag to carry a considerable weight.
Handy and small
After use you fold the parashopper quickly and easily back into the in-sewn pouch. So you have a small package of approximately 8 x 10 x 5 cm. And a nice and handy bag that you can use again and again for your shopping, on vacation, swimming pool or a day at the beach.
Washable and fast drying
Is your parashopper wet or dirty? No problem. It is machine washable at 30 degrees. Moreover, the fabric has the nice quality that it does not absorb moisture. Therefore it dries quickly after washing or rain.
The MoreThanHip Parashoppers are fairly made in Indonesia, in a small workshop. The employees are well paid according to local standards and the employer insures them for medical expenses.
Sustainable aspects of the MoreThanHip hammock
MoreThanHip hammocks are made of parachute silk, or polyamide (nylon). This is a very durable material, resistant to water, mould (weather spots) and sun (UV radiation). For the production of polyamide indeed non-renewable fossil fuels are used, yet the process is relatively durable in comparison to cotton, which uses many pesticides and water. In addition, a parachute silk hammock will last averagely three times longer than a cotton hammock.
Fair production in Indonesia
The MoreThanHip hammocks are fairly made in Indonesia. Production takes place in a small workshop. The employees are paid well to local conditions and for health insurance by the employer.
CO2 compensation via Climate Neutral Group
The CO2 emissions from production and transport of the MoreThanHip hammocks is compensated via the Climate Neutral Group. This organisation invests in projects in developing countries that give people access to renewable energy and contributes to poverty alleviation, improving their health and their quality of life. Moreover, investing in renewable energy is ultimately better for the global CO2 emissions.
