Happy Earth Day! Since today is the designated day to celebrate the planet, I thought I would write about something very timely – eco-friendly bags. It occurred to me, though, that you don’t have to think about eco-friendly products only on April 22. Every day is Earth Day when you live earth-friendly and one great place to start is in the bags you carry.
Take, for example, travel. You may have heard about eco-tourism and ways to travel more eco-friendly (buying carbon offsets, etc.), but a simple way to start traveling earth-friendly is to carry eco-friendly luggage like the Heys Eco Case 3 Piece Luggage Set. This luggage set has all the features you’d expect (lined interior, built in dividers and pockets, durability) but is also made from 100% recycled ABS plastic. The set includes a 28″ case, a 24″ case, and 19″ case.
If you aren’t in need of new luggage, an eco-friendly handbag is an excellent choice. Check out the amykathryn Peony which is both eco and animal-friendly. This handbag is also a trendy choice this season since cross-body bags are hot. They make excellent everyday bags.
Hit the trail or go back to school with an eco-friendly backpack like the ecogear & ecotech Palila Backpack. Made from recycled water bottles (RPET), this bag is rugged and sleek, has tons of organization, and is quite affordable ($29.99).
