Recycling has become an increasingly popular idea. Now that more and more people have become aware of the limits of resources. There are now an increasing number of people being more conscious of using recycled products as doing their own part of trying to care for the Earth. And to help appease the needs of the environment friendly set, there are products like the Mariclaro Recycled Air Bag Backpacks that cater to people who wish to use only recycled products this time.
The Mariclaro Recycled Air Bag Backpacks are unique made-to-order backpacks that are made out from 99 percent recycled materials. Its main component is the used air bag, a sturdy and common material that can no longer be reused once it is deployed in a car. Air bags need to be replaced once they are deployed, making those used ones as garbage. In order to recycle them, Toronto-based Mariclaro has made sturdy and cool looking backpacks out of these used air bags, giving them a second-life as a recycled item.
For car aficionados, the label offers a limited edition of bags derived from the wreckage of luxury names like Cadillac, Mercedes-Benz, and Lincoln. Besides a one-year guarantee, every item is accompanied by framed photo of the original car as a declaration of its provenance. Mariclaro may be only a few years old, but it’s hardly toiling in obscurity. In 2011, it received the Globe Award for Environmental Excellence for best green Canadian product.
