Thousands of pounds of billboard vinyl are tossed into landfills every year. In fact, over 600,000 tons of non-recyclable vinyl finds its way into landfills each year. This is the side of the marketing life cycle that we often don’t think about.
Two brothers decided that they could re-purpose the billboard vinyl into duffel bags, backpacks, and wallets. The billboard vinyl is collected from all over the US. Presently this company repurposes 20,000 pounds a month of used vinyl billboards. Billboards are made out of durable vinyl and are typically 12' x 48' ft. Once their time high in the sky is done, they are shipped out, washed, hand-cut, and sewn into unique designs.
Vinyl is made of PVC, which like other plastics does not decompose quickly: in fact it can take over 1000 years to decompose in a landfill.
These bags are eco-friendly, unique, lightweight, vegan, durable, and waterproof.
