FInding the right bag for you travel can be a hassle. Finding the right bag that is also sustainable is near impossible. Enter my problem. Growing up most of my life in Sonoma County I have always grown up with the idea of living sustainable. My backyard was open fields and town over would have open fire pits where people would dance and sing throughout the night.
Let me introduce you to a company who has brought back to my youth. Kind of. The company I am referring to has a unique philosophy. The underlying theme is owner and people who run the place want to change the world’s perception on waste. They do this by diverting materials from landfills and create interesting bags from those materials. I am speaking of the new start up business from named Sonoma-USA.
Despite it’s name, the upstart Sonoma-USA is located in Santa Rosa (California) (Sonoma County). Their team works with businesses like Sonoma Raceway and the City of Santa Rosa to divert materials, like banners, from the waste-stream. They then turn those banners into something interesting, like an amazing dufflebag.
The Duffle Bag
This duffle is made of a heavy vinyl which means is it very durable. I do not feel bad carrying a plastic duffle. I know that the duffle is created from upcycle materials and materials made in the USA.
When the duffle bag is opened it reveals a lot of space. As well a zipper pouch is also is on the inside to help you keep items separate. There are two other pockets on the outside of the bag, one with a zipper and the other that holds my iPad Mini perfectly.
A customer can purchase this duffle for a retail cost of $99. A Kickstarter Campaign is going where the duffle can be purchased early for $94.
