It goes without saying that plastic is a material that is a scourge on our environment so any brands doing their part in helping to recycle it is alright in our book here at Coolector HQ and this is particularly true when the bran in question is as cool as Bellroy. The new range of gear from Bellroy uses recycled bottles as the chief material in their crafting and this is definitely an endeavour that deserves applause in our opinion and the fact that all the accessories are excellent as well is the icing on the cake.
The Bellroy Recycled Bottles Range of bags and accessories has something for everyone and regardless of what piece of EDC or carry that you’re after, it should have something that more than fits the bill. All of Bellroy’s signature styles are now made from recycled plastic bottles and this will help the first class accessories brand really play their part in helping to reduce the amount of plastic waste that impacts the environment. The bottles are ground into chips, melted and spun into strong polyester fibre, then woven into durable fabric used in making the bags and accessories.
