But why not take it a step further and make your travel eco-friendly too? It’s time to pack your bags with some excellent sustainable and lightweight travel companions that not only reduce your carbon footprint, but also make your trip smoother and more enjoyable. Let’s dive in!
Easy eco-chic travel with Tumi
When it comes to travel bags that seamlessly blend style, functionality, and durability, Tumi is a name that stands out. Among their impressive lineup, the Tegra-Lite collection has become a symbol of luxury travel gear that goes beyond the ordinary.
These suitcases are composed of Tegris, a polypropylene thermoplastic composite material that is both extremely durable and surprisingly lightweight. NFL protective armour and NASCAR race vehicle parts both employ Tegra. This implies that even if they are handled roughly or experience unexpected bumps while travelling, your possessions will be safe. The best part? It’s composed of recycled materials!
