The goal behind these bags has been to help rid the world of waste while inspiring a generation to reduce their impact on the planet by utilizing and re-purposing the world's pre-consumer excess. Supporting upcycled products that avoid the use of virgin materials keeps these materials out of landfills and incinerators.
The end goal: zero waste. Eventually we hope to close the loop, paving a path to the eventual transition to a circular economy.
Clean air and clean water are the only two elements all the species in the world need to survive. However, huge amounts of water, energy and other resources are depleted to create the raw materials for the gear and apparel we use today. Avoiding the use of virgin materials in manufacturing requires far less energy, and helps preserve natural resources. It also keeps these materials from being incinerated or being added to landfills, which reduces pollution caused by waste.
These premium bags are made from retired leather airplane seat covers, airline uniforms, as well as upcycled Royal Robbins fabrics.
