While we do need to take bigger steps in saving our planet, the tiny gestures we make count as well.
Here is a list of six eco-friendly bags that every woman traveler will find handy.
1. An everyday handbag for essentials from Flat Bags
Flat Bags are bags made from recycled bike tubes. For Shannon Hames, founder of Snowline Designs and Flat Bags, being a mountain biker meant that she had plenty of old inner bike tubes in her basement.
She says on her website, “in 1996 the first inner tube was cut, instead of patched… and with some old rain pants for material, I made the first Flat Bag.”
This aspen colored flat bag – in beautiful hues of green and gold – has an inside pocket and a one inch wide shoulder strap. The bags can be used to store official documents like passports and travel necessities like toiletries.
Due to their texture, flat bags are sturdy- they will not tear and will be able to withstand extreme weather conditions.
