TimBuk2 started in 1989 making messenger bags. They've always had concern for the environment, and just recently gained some green exposure for recycling PVC trade show banners (I shudder to think how many will end up in the trash after CES) into bags. At the show yesterday, we got a chance to talk with Andy and Perry, and they gave us a sneak peek at a prototype bag made from the packaging materials they receive with their fabrics. Take a look at the YouTube video here.
They're planning a green overhaul for their manufacturing facility in San Fransisco later this year, which we'll be following closely. Be sure to check out their website!
