FASHION – These Utilitarian Fanny Packs are Made From Recycled Plastic Waste
By Ebony Goodridge
The yarn, called ECONYL®, saves 70,000 barrels of crude oil and 57,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions for every 10,000 tonnes of fabric that are produced. An added bonus: the bags also totally resemble the cute-as-hell classic Prada nylon bags from the ’90s.
Mark Wiltzer and Jacqueline Gelber, WANT Les Essentiels’ CEOs, explained that the collection is intentionally being offered at an inclusive price point: “We really wanted to make the collection very accessible and allow the consumer to participate in reducing the environmental footprint.”
