A great gift for that person in your life that wants to be green is a bag from act 2 Green Smart. The exterior fabric is 100% recycled PET polyester and the interior fabric is also 100% recycled PET polyester. PET is plastic bottle, and they are one of the biggest enviromental disasters today. In the United states alone, 230 bottles per person go to landfill per year. That's enough crushed bottles to fill the Rose Bowl Stadium in California every two weeks! These bottles, which are made from petroleum , find their way into landfills, rivers, lakes and roadsides. And they never decompose.
act2GreenSmart thinks that this is unacceptable. The technology exists today to convert bottles into high quality, durable fabrics which look and perform equal to their virgin counterparts. All of Act2 fabrics are made from 100% certified post-consumer PET bottles. You get a top quality product made from one of the world's most durable fabrics, polyester, AND save the planet at the same time. If you would like to see a step by step process of how you can turn plastic bottles into bags go here.
To make this tote it took 10 - 16 oz. PET bottles. It saves 6,623 Btu or 1.9 kWh and it saved enough energy to power your laptop for 78 hours. Now how is that for going green?
