  • 2011 Mainebiz Woman to Watch

This experience in sales, distribution, and operations gave Beth the confidence and resources to return to Maine and buy into, incorporate, and build Sea Bags. Beth created Sea Bags on the founding principles on being green in product/practice, being made in Maine, and acting as good stewards to our community and State. Sea Bags still operates on the same principles. By the end of this summer Sea Bags will employ over 100 people and have 16 storefronts.
