I love companies that can take old materials and create a whole new product that is functional and stylish at the same time, better yet if the company also helps conserve and protect nature with the aide of the sales from said products.
Well GreenSmart does all those things and more, I was lucky enough to see some of their products at CES first hand and I have been doing a test run on the Green Puku Messenger bag picture here.
For example this bag is made from 30 recycled plastic bottles, with a large pocket that can hold a laptop that measures up to 15.4”, plenty of pockets, zipper pocket on top and a smaller zipper pocket on the front it has a lot of storage without being a bulky bag.
A big part of what makes these bags so impressive is the process used to make the fabric, bottles turned into chips, spun into yarn, then woven into fabric and sewn into bags.
And that’s not all they do to help protect and conserve our resources, in fact the bags are named after animals and the proceeds helps the organizations that help protect the animals in the wild.
For example this bag is named after the Puku is an antelope found in the wet grasslands of Southern Democratic Republic of Congo and Zambia. When scared, they repeat a shrill whistle sound. Puku are crepuscular, as they are active in the early morning and late afternoon.
Another one of the products that we tried out was the MacBook 15/15” Laptop Markhor, a slim laptop case with a strap, pretty basic in design but it has enough space for your basic laptop needs.
And so if you would like to do something good for the environment, help endangered species, and have some cool gear go ahead and check out GreenSmart Bags, they are worth the money and good karma.
