Hand Bags Made from Retailer Banners and Used Truck and Tractor Tire Inner Tubes


Recommended Posts

Creative recycling experts Ken Kobrick and Angela Greene of Passchal Products were recently posed an unusual question. Linda Thomas of the Whole Foods Market contacted them in October 08 and asked:

"We have large vinyl banners that we use on a regular basis. Unfortunately, they can’t be recycled, so we’re trying to find another use for them. Since you use recycled materials in your bags, would you be interested in using our banners?"

So Ken and Angela came up with a new and artistic way to make good use of the banner material. They incorporated banner material along with the inner tubes of recycled tractor tires into a unique set of high fashion bags specially designed for Whole Foods shoppers.

“Each bag is original with the colorful message that comes directly from the Whole Foods banner.” Every single one of them is different," said Ken Kobrick co-owner of Passchal.
