Timbuk2 Sustainable Limited Edition Bags

10_29_08_timbuk2_1.jpgEarlier this month, Trent gave us tips on green gear for our bikes. And he mentioned the Timbuk2 bags made of hemp and recycled PET.

We’ve had our eye on one of these for a while, but we’re glad we waited. Because now, Timbuk2 is offering a limited line of super-cool sustainable messengers and totes. And until Nov. 3, ground shipping is free. So now’s the time! Jump below for the link and more information.

These bags range from carryall messengers to laptop messengers to totes. They all have waterproof liners, too, which helps make them more all-weather and snow-ready for the coming season (though in Texas, we’re lucky if we see sleet. So I’m just saying that for all you folks living north of the Lone Star State.).

We’ve been fans of Timbuk2 for a long while because of their efficient, versatile products. But they’re a sustainable company all around: all their bags are stitched in San Francisco by fairly-paid workers. They support their local community, even in an age of growing globalism.

And of course, these bags are built to last. The Timbuk2 website says that many owners carry their Timbuk2 bag for 10 years or more–and anything that lasts that long is definitely a sustainable choice.

Just remember to act fast if you want one of these limited editions and take advantage of the free ground shipping!
