Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)


FEMA enlisted AstraPouch® to create an easy-to-carry water bag for hurricane relief teams to distribute to victims before or after a hurricane strike.


Given the nature of hurricane relief, FEMA needed a pouch that was:

  • Low cost and available in large volumes
  • Reusable, for use before, during, and after the natural disaster
  • Shipped flat, taking up the least amount of possible cargo or air pallet space


AstraPouch® designed a strong, clear 10L bag-in-box style bag (sans box) with an integrated top carrying handle. A 33mm screw cap allowed for easy removal for filling but with a tight seal for preventing spillage or contamination. The screw cap also allowed for rinsing and refilling if needed.


  • Yielded 40x increase in items per air pallet
  • Provided 4,000% more liquid holding capacities at 1/40 of the transportation cost
  • Created a cost-effective product ready to aide future disaster sites
