Charcoal, Light Grey
This XL Jumbo Tote is made of roughly 20 plastic bottles (1 and 2 litre) salvaged straight from South Africa’s landfills. The light grey felt is made of mostly Coca-Cola bottles, while the charcoal is made from a mixture of bottles.
A simple but extremely strong and handy tote bag that will become an everyday necessity. Used for pretty much anything and everything from shopping to beaching to momming to studying. For grocery shopping it can replace up to 2.5 plastic bags worth of groceries and hold their weight easily.
An original design from Ecogemgem. It has a magnetic clip at the top with outer material and lining made up completely from 100% recycled plastic bottles. Width 42cm, length 56cm (give or take a cm as each is lovingly made to order here in South Africa and not in bulk). Be sure to also take a look at Ecogemgem’s beautiful clutch bag available for purchase here as well as their cute kiddies bunny backpack here.
We believe giving these plastic bottles a new life and being able to engage in conversation with your community about refusing, reducing, reusing and recycling might raise awareness about plastic pollution and ways to divert trash from landfills and oceans. Plant the seed everywhere you go and influence others to rethink plastic.
This product can be recycled again at the end of its life or can be cut and stuffed into an ecobrick. Need an ecobrick stick to make the job easier? Get one here. The size is perfect for fitting into any bottle top and the comfortable rubber at the top, helps keep your hand happy even when on a serious ecobricking binge.
