This tote bag is made from a RECYCLED BILLBOARD OF THE MOVIE: Music and Lyrics
This billboard was ONCE DISPLAYED OUTSIDE a MOVIE THEATRE in South America. Some wording is in Spanish. THOUSANDS of these BILLBOARDS are PRINTED EACH YEAR to PROMOTE NEW FILMS and AS SOON as the FILMS LEAVE THE THEATRES, THE BILLBOARDS ARE TAKEN DOWN, THROWN AWAY, and eventually END UP IN LANDFILLS.
IN COLLABORATION with MODULAB ECOIST RECYCLES these WASTE-BOUND MATERIALS into very STURDY, DURABLE, WATERPROOF, ONE-OF-A-KIND HANDBAGS AND OTHER ACCESSORIES.
Each one WITH its own UNIQUE COLORS, GRAPHICS and PERSONALITY.
Who we are?
We are a collaborative of eco-designers and entrepreneurs whose objective is to merge ultra-cool design with environmental awareness to provide stylish, functional, and durable handbags that people will love to own.
We hope to inspire more people to think differently about the things they buy, how they are made, where they come from, and vote for a more a sustainable world.
What are Recycled Movie Billboard Handbags?
In collaboration with Modulab in Chile, Ecoist collects outdoor movie billboards that were previously advertised and were headed for the trash.
When cut into pieces, these billboards make a great fabric full of endless colours, patterns, symbols, images, and celebrity faces.
What is Buy a Bag, Plant a Tree?
In partnership with Trees for the Future, a Washington DC-based environmental group, a tree is planted for every bag sold.
Each Ecoist bag is one-of-a-kind.
