It was on the occasion of Earth Day this year, that luggage maker Samsonite unveiled the first rigid suitcase made from recycled household plastic waste.

The “Green Grey” edition is part of Samsonite’s S’Cure Eco range, the eco-designed range of products in Samsonite’s S’Cure collection of rigid suitcases: the shells of the Green Grey are made from 85% of polypropylene recycled from post-consumption packaging. The inner lining was made from Recyclex, a fabric created using recycled PET bottles. Eco friendly to the very end, the tailored carrying handle (except on the cabin-size model), the logo and the integrated address holder are enriched with recycled wood fibres.

The secondary raw materials equivalent to virgin materials are supplied by Quality Circular Polymers, “QCP”, a high-level plastic recycling plant located in the Netherlands, managed by SUEZ and LyondellBasell.

As is the case with the other products in the S’Cure Eco family, “Green Grey” meets the criteria that have made the brand’s reputation, namely luggage that is lightweight, highly manoeuvrable thanks to their four wheels that rotate up to 360°, resistant and high-end, designed using innovative materials and advanced technologies.
