In recent decades, the use of virgin plastic has increased 20-fold and is expected to double in the next 20 years. It is a monumental implication that governments, the scientific community, and private sectors around the world have been coming together to work out how to best address this global issue.
The demand for virgin plastic materials has surged dramatically in the fashion and retail industry, where such materials (including polyester) is primarily used in the production of clothing, sneakers, and bags due to its cost-efficiency and versatility. But this low-cost innovation comes with a price, and more consumers and businesses are getting increasingly aware of its huge environmental effects.
This is the reason why lifestyle brand Pacsafe has recently pledged to reduce its global impact without compromising product quality through a sustainable product solution that uses plastic waste.
With this goal in mind, Pacsafe introduces its Metrosafe X collection made from recycled plastic bottles (PET bottles). With every bag from this collection designed for sustainability and durability, committed to a more responsible travel lifestyle, wherever you choose to roam.
“Metrosafe X was designed and made with the conscious travelers in mind—for those who are driven by exciting adventures but also aim to have a positive impact on the world.” says Melissa Taruc, Pacsafe’s Marketing Communications Manager.
Similar to its predecessors, the new Metrosafe X backpack was born out of necessity; a product made for modern city adventures.
Roaming around the city has never been this exciting, easy, and safe with this new backpack as you can easily store your gears such as a 15-inch MacBook and a tablet with its multiple internal pockets, with a hidden pocket so you can quickly access your phone or stash your valuables against your back without any hassle.
The bag also has attachment points on shoulder straps for small items such as pouches or water bottles, and internal pockets to make sure small essentials such as wallets, passports, keys, and pen loop are neatly placed.
Another great product from the same collection that’s been rebooted to follow Pacsafe’s call for sustainability is the Metrosafe compact crossbody.
Small but reliable and durable for all types of usage, this bag is easy to carry around in a fast-paced enviornment. With a spacious internal pocket for a 7-inch tablet, internal clips to secure your keys or wallet, and of course, Pacsafe’s uncompromised anti-theft features such as the lockable zips eXomesh to secure all your belongings, an RFIDsafe pocket for all your transit cards. In addition, the bag’s TurnNLock hook lets you close and open your bag with ease, letting you stay equipped, protected, and mobile at all times.
