MANILA, Philippines – Cities present a world of adventure. They are also where the majority of the world’s plastic waste comes from. The new Metrosafe X Black collection by Pacsafe is designed for those who love exploring our world’s cities, while helping to keep our waters clearer and streets cleaner.
Each bag in the Metrosafe X Black range uses fabric 100% made from recycled plastic bottles that would otherwise end up as waste. By using recycled PET to make the bags, Pacsafe aren’t just reducing the amount of plastic in our oceans, city streets and landfill, but helping to reduce a reliance on crude oil to create new products. This in turn saves water and lessens Carbon Dioxide emissions compared with using virgin materials. The move is part of a wider pledge by Pacsafe to eliminate virgin plastic from their supply chain by 2025. Add in the travel brand’s patented anti-theft technology and you have bags that deliver peace of mind for your gear and the planet.
Pacsafe’s efforts have already seen 420,000 bottles recycled and counting, a saving of over a million liters of water and a reduction of carbon emissions by 26 tons. And, considering the demand for the bags, these numbers will only go up.
“We’re really excited about this new Metrosafe X collection,” said Phil Hayes, Executive VP of Global Product at Pacsafe. “We’ve taken tried and true classics and redefined them with recycled fabric for conscious-minded urbanites. A lot of thought went into making sure they have features that work for people who pack a lot into fast-paced city life.”
Every style in the latest collection includes secured zips and cut-resistant materials to protect your belongings, and an RFID blocking pocket to protect your identity against unwanted scans, and anchor straps protecting your bag from theft. It all means you can protect everything you have that’s valuable – your belongings, your experiences and our planet.
