The cultural activity in Barcelona [2] generates a huge number of advertising banners every year, which are hung from street lights to advertise exhibitions and events. In 2000 there were approximately 19,800 banners that were largely not reusable. Enter Demano [3] to the rescue: the Spanish company recycles these banners into a variety of cool products for portage (similar to Baumm’s recycled banner bags [4]).

Demano has also begun to recycle materials from a variety of other sources about town including polyester canvasses used during building renovations, to make their beautiful bags [5]. If you’re looking for a cute back-to-school book bag, make sure to check out Demano to step out in eco-style.
