Timbuk2′s “Totally Sustainable” Bag at TED

| Thursday March 9th, 2006 | 2 Comments

tedgiftbag.jpgThe TED Conference recently happened in Monterey, CA – it’s one of the most amazing (not that I’ve been) conferences of the year. You can read all about it here. But this post is about the bags. A super cool conference needs super cool bags, and who better to provide them than Timbuk2.
Anyway, the bag they gave away at the conference is designed to embrace the first stages of the “cradle to cradle” philosophy of William McDonough – produced with sustainable materials, and totally recycleable at the end of its life into useful material. It’s only a start – “totally sustainable” is wishful thinking at this point – but according to their literature, phase II of the project will bring it one step closer.
