Doing away with your daily mode of transport for the social cause of environmental balance might sound improbable for most of us at this point in time, but contribution at a diminutive level could be brought about with the help of an object as trivial as a solar bag. Solar bag maker, Sakku from Switzerland have added a new model to their wide range of Solar bags. It’s called ‘ Buddy’ and is composed of recycled sun umbrellas and shades as against old sails from sailing boats used in their previous models. The 100% environmentally sound power/fashion bags are composed of slightly different parts of an old sun shade, which assist in reducing the ever-accumulating human-rendered waste.
The sunshine ‘Buddy’ bags are available in two variants: the direct charges devices from the flexible solar panels and the ‘akku’ that comes with the rechargeable battery which allows continual storage of solar energy, each costing $275 and $384 respectively.(seems pricey for a recycled bag) Nevertheless, they’re all vibrant and lively, with enough potential to woo their customers. The Sun Buddy is soon to enter their US online store as well.
