Boulder, CO (PRWEB) April 22, 2010
English Retreads, an eco-fashion handbag and accessory company, is announcing the debut of the Bentley Luxe laptop carrier, handcrafted from repurposed material, in celebration of the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. This new bag expands a growing line of vegan totes, clutches, and accessories which combine to make a high-impact fashion statement with low impact on the environment.
The Bentley Luxe accommodates most laptops in a padded and secured compartment; additional features include abundant inside and outside zippered pockets, a mesh bottle holder and adjustable padded shoulder strap. Reclaimed tire inner-tubes are given new life as the external material for the eco-bag and five internal color options are available using a 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottle PET material.
“We recognize the emerging opportunity to integrate fashion and environmental consciousness on behalf of the green consumer's need for a stylish and sophisticated laptop carrier,” said Heather English, English Retreads Founder and President, “With the release of the Bentley Luxe, we are excited to lead the market in innovative repurposed raw material use, while simultaneously delivering on functionality with a unique style all our own – our Company could not be more excited to be able to go to market with our new eco-bag on this very special 40th anniversary of Earth Day.”
