Highway billboards usually end up polluting the landfill after the end of their ad cycle. Made from PVC sheeting with a long life-cycle, these discards are now being upcycled into stylish bags by the folks at Green Guru Gear. Ecologic Designs reclaims, processes and sews them into great products that would pass as pieces of art. Reclaiming materials that would otherwise get trashed is another superb way to lessen our consumer footprint and ecological impact.
Green Guru Gear bags are made from waterproof vinyl billboards, with reclaimed innertube rubber bottoms and 100% recycled PETE fabric for the webbing and binding. A hidden valuables pocket, a water bottle holder and an interior organizer with lots of small pockets keeps your gear together, and the mesh back pad keeps your back cool. The company's attention to sustainability and reclamation means that bags are made from 98% reclaimed and recycled material.
You don't have to ride a bike to get some good usage from a messenger bag, and Green Guru Gear has a whole line of upcycled billboard bags, including totes, surfboard and snowboard bags, and even a billboard wallet.
