A London based team of designers and developers has created a new eco-friendly luggage range designed specifically for the modern traveller and constructed from recycled and regenerated materials. The luggage has been created to provide a sustainable alternative to the unfriendly luggage currently available and has taken to Kickstarter to raise the £65,000 required to make the jump from concept into production. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the TSA approved lock and carry-on luggage.
“PHOENX began with the simple idea that the choices we make have a lasting effect on the world around us. Traveling is an essential part of the human experience. It’s also responsible for as much as eight per cent of global carbon emissions. By providing a product that is sustainably produced and highly functional, we hope to positively influence travelers to make more intentional choices in how they move from place to place.”
“The PHOENX carry-on suitcase is made from 95% recycled and regenerated materials. Our signature modular design allows each component to be sent in for replacement, enabling the PHOENX team to properly recycle each part. This benefits both the consumer and our planet by decreasing unnecessary waste and extending the lifespan of your luggage.”
Earlybird pledges are available from £170 offering a 30% discount off the MSRP, with shipping to backers expected to take place sometime around June 2020 if manufacturing progresses smoothly.
