Parkland: Backpacks Made From Recycled Bottles

image
The exterior of all Parkland products is made from 100% recycled, plastic water bottles. Want to know how?
Sort it.
Clear PET plastic bottles are collected and cleaned at the sorting facility. Fun fact: To easily remove labels, the bottles are bathed in acid. Ironically, soda, which often comes in plastic bottles, can cause acid reflux in humans.
Shred it.
Bottles are crushed into small, plastic flakes. Pasta lovers—if you enjoy the sight of Parmesan cheese being grated onto your favourite plate of pasta, you’ll surely enjoy watching this process.
Melt it.
The plastic flakes are melted into small pellets. While they might look like Tic Tacs, the pellets will unfortunately not freshen your breath!
Spin it.
The pellets are melted again, then extruded and spun into thread. You know what else melts? Ice cream. And hearts, especially during teenage years.
Weave it.
The thread is woven into fabric and dyed. We like to combine colours to create the most desirable patterns possible. It’s nice to be desired.
Sew it.
The fabric is sewn together to create (what some would consider) the most stylish bags and accessories known to humankind. Fun fact: It takes 12 plastic bottles to make one Parkland Kingston backpack.
100% vegan leather.
Parkland’s leather diamonds are now made from apples. A unique manufacturing process combines apple waste (a byproduct of juice production), solvent and polyurethane to form an animal-friendly material with properties similar to genuine leather. Apple leather is 100% vegan.
