Encore Recycled Tote

The Green Collective

Regular price $55.00 Sale

An incredibly durable bag ideal for beach, shopping, camping, markets, sports and more.

Handmade in Nelson each bag is unique and made entirely from upcycled local inflatable / bouncy castle or awning vinyl PVC. The strapping is from expired car seat restraints, re purposed through carseat recycling schemes. Diverting from landfill, one bag at a time.

Double handles offer a variety of ways to carry it. Long straps for on the shoulder or across the shoulder satchel style. Short handles are ideal if fully loaded. Strong, durable and waterproof. You can tie the long handles together to secure the bags contents. To clean simply wipe with a cloth or take it outside and hose it down!

Approximate sizes:
There are 3 sizes available that vary slightly in size and colour combinations (due to offcut variations):
