For all you amateur and professional photographers out there, Lowepro now has a series of camera bags made from 95% recycled materials. The durable fabric is made from 100% recycled Cyclepet®, while the hardware is made from reground plastic, which is recycled from industrial trimmings salvaged from factory floors. The Terraclime bags are available in 4 different sizes and can accommodate small cameras, GPS units, all the way up to a DLSR with an extra lens. You can choose from 3 hip colors as well – black, plum and grass.
Lowepro’s eco-friendly addition to their renowned line of camera bags is a continuation of the company’s commitment to preserving the environment. Cyclepet® is a 100% post-consumer fabric made from 16 oz PET bottles. The smallest model, the Terraclime 10, uses exactly 2.5 bottles, while the largest model, the Terraclime 100, uses 22 bottles. Each bag also features an assortment of internal pockets perfect for memory sticks or energy bars. In addition, a portion of the proceeds from Terraclime bags will go towards Polar Bears International (PBI), in an effort to conserve and protect polar bears.
You can find these eco-savvy, camera toting, polar bear saving bags at Lowepro and Amazon from around $20 to $80.
