I have selected 7 of the best eco bags made out of all sorts of products that would have otherwise been tossed into landfill. Recycled bags are no longer what they used to be, these bags are all very stylish in design, very durable and ecologically friendly.
ELVIS & KREESE
Discarded fire Hose bag from Elvis & Kresse. This innovative Fire-Hose range is made exclusively from genuine de-commissioned British fire brigade hoses which, after a didtinguised career fighting fires and saving lives, would have been destined for landfill.

DISCARDED BANNER VINYL
ELBOW GREASE DESIGNS
Eco bags designed by Jenny Hurth of Elbow Grease Designs are hand sewn from discarded vinyl signs and banners. Originally printed for trade shows, conventions, etc. These banners would otherwise end up in landfill. To see Elbow Grease Designs click HERE.
