The interior and exterior fabric used to create this eco-friendly Baringo messenger bag is derived from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles – keeping a total 31 bottles from ending up in a landfill. Plastic bottles are collected, ground up, washed to become fiber, spun into yarn, woven into fabrics, and sewn into bags. The overall process uses less energy than making polyester out of virgin chemicals and has resulted in the recycling of over 750,000 plastic bottles for bags so far.
The Baringo messenger bag, named for the second most endangered giraffe subspecies, is generously proportioned, well-designed, and ideal for work, travel, or school. The back of the messenger features a full-width slash pocket (perfect for folders) and the front has an easy access stash pocket on the flap exterior. The main interior compartment offers a broad organization pocket, additional slash pockets, and a separate, padded laptop bay in the back that fits up to a 15.6-inch laptop. The exterior features two end pockets for a cell phone or water bottle, a handle for easy pickup, and an adjustable strap for comfort.
The Baringo messenger is also available in Black, Ocean Blue, or Olive Green.
