Here's the deal. When we were at Eco Tuesday, (see previous blog and video) we got these great camera bags from a company called Lowepro. We thought they were cool. So even though it was really late and we were a tad tired, we were so excited that we analyzed them on the way home, and took note of the fact that they were so eco it was amazing. Here's the product description:
Terraclime 30 is a soft-sided, protective, multi-purpose pouch designed expressly for the eco-conscious, fashion-savvy consumer. It reduces environmental impact by virtue of its materials—over 95% recycled. All of the fabric is 100% post-consumer Cyclepet®: recycled 16 oz. PET bottles turned into sturdy, water-and-abrasion-resistant material (3.5 bottles in Terraclime 30). Features include memory card pocket, adjustable/detachable shoulder strap, belt loop, and double-loop hook closure (made of plastic regrind to help reduce waste). Multi-purpose styling makes it easy to carry compact point-and-shoot cameras as well as small personal electronics and gear. A portion of the proceeds from each bag goes to Polar Bear International (PBI) to help in efforts to save polar bear habitats from the impact of climate change.
So we decided in light of the polar bear issue and other factors, we really should share the joy, so we have 2 bags to give away.
