San Francisco-based bike bag company Timbuk2 recently teamed up with their local Whole Foods (just a bike ride away from Timbuk2’s downtown manufacturing plant) to make bags out of the old banners that hung over the store’s meat and produce departments. The vinyl Whole Foods “Fresh Heirloom Tomatoes” and “Eat Locally” banners suddenly became the perfect waterproof lining for Timbuk2’s classic messenger bags. Check out photos of the recycling party, and Timbuk2’s new sustainable hemp “Grown” line.
