Patagonia has unveiled a new range of bags made from recycled plastic bottles, which made up 100 percent of the body fabric and webbing for the companies “Black Hole” bags.
The Black Hole line is part of Patagonia’s commitment to move toward 100 percent renewable and recycled raw materials. The company’s goal is to be carbon neutral across its entire business, including the supply chain, by 2025. The company sees its use of synthetic and natural fibers made from pre-consumer and post-consumer waste as helping limit dependence on raw materials and reducing carbon emissions.
The collection includes wheeled duffel bags, tote packs, backpacks and hip packs that are water-resistant and come in a variety of colors and styles.
