Sustainable suitcases made from recycled material
There is now a wide range of sustainable materials used to make suitcases, backpacks and bags. In addition to natural materials such as cotton or canvas, recycled materials such as Ocean Plastic or recycled PET are increasingly being used.
Ocean Bound Plastic
Ocean Bound Plastic is plastic that is still collected before it can enter the sea. Here, plastic waste is collected near coasts and beaches, usually at a distance of up to 200 kilometers, which would otherwise have ended up in the sea sooner or later due to weather phenomena or tides. This plastic waste is then processed and used to make items such as bags and suitcases.
You've probably heard of PET in connection with plastic bottles. And it is here that polyethylene terephthalate is most commonly used. If these bottles are recycled, polyester fibers can be made from them, which in turn are used for the production of bags and suitcases. This prevents plastic waste from ending up unused in the oceans or otherwise in the environment.
