Timbuk2 Recycles Old Bike to Work Banners into Ltd Edition Messenger Bags
To celebrate Bike Month, Timbuk2 has diverted some prior year’s Bike to Work banners from the landfill and turned them into limited edition messenger bags. Only 100 will be made and $50 from each one goes to the San Francisco Bike Coalition. Each one’s a bit different thanks to the banners having been hung throughout the city in the past, receiving wear and tear and such, but they’ve been cleaned up before getting cut and sewn. Get yours here.
