From Bottles to Bag

Changing bottles into bags is not magic but it could help the planet.

A current hop topic, with possible long term influences, is concerned with the saving and possible reusing of the planet's resources.  Rather than an occasional odd example of green influences, we are beginning to see an increase in certain companies emphasising the green credentials of their output.  Product listings now tend to feature whether the goods in question make use of recycled material and also point out that product material can be reused to cut down on wastage.

A recent example of this take on the environmental future is the announcement from Trust Gaming following its set-up of its Clevergreen initiative last year.  With this initiative, the company is committed to pursuing projects that concern and improve the environmental impact of its products.  Now we can begin to see the results of this initiative with a new product announcement from Trust.

The company has announced its range of Bologna bags.  These bags come with the claim of being sustainable and spacious as they perform their designated duty of carrying a laptop and other essential items of equipment.  While useful, the Bologna bag does not sound particularly environment friendly until you discover that each of these Bologna bags is manufactured from 11 polyethylene terephthalate (or PET if among friends) bottles.  In case you are wondering, the material used in the construction of the Bologna bags has been verified according to Global Recycled Standard (GRS) and bears a transaction certificate providing prove that the bag is made from recycled material.

The Bologna bag has a padded, top-loading laptop sleeve and is cable of holding laptops up to 16 inches in size.  A zipped front pocket is available to hold small accessories while the bag's micro-lining should help protect the laptop when in transit.  A carry handle and removable strap are provided with the bag.  These bags are available in a choice of black, blue, green and red to suit your taste.  The Bologna bag will be available from Amazon priced at £17.99 for green credential wannabes as they do their bit for the environment.
