It’s pretty obvious that the materials a garment or accessory are made of have a lot to do with it being green, but did you know that the product’s use and capabilities can make it environmentally conscious too? A shining example of this is the sleek family of Noon Solar bags that allow you to charge up your cell phone, MP3 player, or other small electronics using the clean (and free!) power of the sun. Plus, the idea of never again having to worry about being lost in a sketchy neighborhood with a drained cell phone or having your camera die right in the midst of celebrity-spotting is pretty darn appealing to us.

Like all Noon Solar bags, the Elston provides enough juice to power your cell phone or mp3 player on the go and it made to withstand the test of time—something that is very sustainable.
