I adore luggage and would probably buy even more if I had the money, never mind that I already have quite a lot of ’em already. So it’s quite pleasing to hear about eco-friendly luggage lines every now and then. The latest to come out is Samsonite’s Terrea, which consists of products made mostly out of recycled items.
The bags in this Terrea collection contain a minimum of 86% of recycled materials with some bags containing as much as 95%, one of the highest available rates.
To begin, all fabrics used in the bags are 100% recycled. Other unique and environmentally-friendly features include: recycled foam padding throughout all back panels, handles, and shoulder straps, recycled buckles and clips, recycled wheel housings, studs, pull handles with injected wood, use of natural coconut fiber in shoulder straps, backpack straps cut directly out of the back panels to use even less material.
Wonder when other luggage manufacturers will follow suit? This just shows that green luggage really IS doable.
