The big news of the day is that it is Earth Day. There seems to be a lot more awareness about Earth Day this year as opposed to past years. That probably has a lot to do with all the attention the Earth and global climate change is getting. You can't go three feet in one direction without seeing something being labeled as "Green."
Luggage has been making great strides in going eco-friendly. There are a number of bags we can point to that are using recycled fabrics and Earth friendly materials. Baggallini, Heys, Hobo's Urban Oxide and Shoreline are brands I can name off the top of my head that sell those types of products. Not only do those brands use recycled materials, they are reusable until you wear them out and, depending on how heavy you use them, that could be a long time.
