Business travelers can go green with a new line of luggage made of ECOALF, a new type of fabric made entirely from recycled PET bottles created by Spanish company fun & basics.
Sleek and simple, the new line of bags also seeks to educate consumers. Eye-catching graphics explain exactly how many bottles it takes to make each bag. For each meter of ECOALF fabric, 147 cm wide, 70 75cl bottles of PET are used. With a product line ranging from a toilet bag (which takes 17 bottles) to the larger carry on suitcase (which takes 148), travelers can travel light and travel green, knowing exactly how many bottles they have saved from the landfill. The reincarnated PET bottles make a hardy textile that is perfect for luggage; 100% recycled, PVC-free, flexible, tension resistant, long lasting, waterproof, and lightweight.
As amazing as it is, ECOALF is not airline-resistant. Should your swanky eco-luggage get lost somewhere between New York and Barcelona, at least you’ll know you’re saving a few dozen bottles from the landfill when you have to replace it!
