Kids that are environmentally conscious go for durable school bags (made of PET bottles)
From a fizzy drink bottle to a school bag. This doesn’t need a complicated story. If you know that the bag is made out of recycled materials, you know it is about PET bottles.
If the plastic soup problems are discussed at at school, you can contribute as a young student by showing your friends your Sticky Lemon bag. What does that mean?
A Sticky Lemon bag is made out of recycled PET-bottles. You probably have heard about it. They even make shoes out of PET bottles and a lot of other products. But many people don’t have a clue how it works.
School Bags out of PET-bottles
You know bottles with deposit money? That are PET-bottles. They are collected on several special places in town.
PET stands for: Poly Ethyl enTered talaat. A mouth full for polyester or plastic. It’s strong material and it can be recycled. That’s what it is all about.
All those bottles are punctured so the air comes out. In a fabric they will be put together. They have light weight, so you can put an enormous amount together.
These packages are grinded into flakes. An enormous amount of little pieces are left. Than the technic comes in to separate the polyethylene (PE) plastic from the PET plastic. The last ones are being cleaned and dried and sorted out in colour. Then it will be processed to granulate. Little grains, almost powder. Now you have raw material with an enormous traction.
This is the material that will be used for production. It’s even made into fabric where clothes can be made off, and so much more. Like the schoolbags for the students. And it all started with a bottle of Cola.
Durable Eastpak school bags
Also durable are the Eastpak school bags (translated to Dutch: schooltassen). These bags are so strong and of high quality that the marketing says: they go a lifetime! They give you thirty years of guarantee. You know then you have something durable in your hands. With a timeless design you can have it for years.
Leather bags are durable
Leather is also durable because it is a strong natural material that becomes even more beautiful the longer you use it. Eco leather school bags are the ones! Like the O MY Bag bags. Or the leather Cowboysbag bags. Check THEBAGSTORE for more durable bags.
So go for a durable school bag. There are designs for boys and ‘lady’ school bags (translated to Dutch: schooltassen dames). And the leather ones can be suitable for both. Be socially concerned and go for the best and most beautiful school bag made out of PET-bottles or otherwise. Tell others about it and be proud to wear your own. And of course; hand in your PET bottles by a assembly point. It is the first step…
