Recycling Gives Back

Laptop Sleeve & Bag From Recycled Bottles

— February 25, 2008 — Eco
It is gratifying to see the fruit of our recycling. That cola bottle you wisely recycled might just turn up in your next purchase. GreenSmart's $25 Laptop sleeve is made from an innovative fabric called PET, which is made from these old plastic bottles we recycle. At less than half a pound, it provides great protection for your notebook inside your backbag or suitcase.

The $40 Laptop Jacket weighs less than a pound and comes with handles and a shoulder strap. It can be used on its own or you can slip it into another bag/suitecase. It features full access zippo back so you can access the ports at the back of your notebook without taking it out. The models come in black, toasted almond and blue.
