11 Best Upcycled and Recycled Products (2019)


San Francisco, California-based Mafia Bags makes their backpacks, duffels, and totes out of recycled sailcloth, which is light and durable. Industrial designer (and surfer) Yves Béhar designed the Deep Blue bag, which incorporates old climbing ropes, seatbelts, and wetsuit neoprene and has fun, hidden details, like a loop at the bottom of the bag so you can hang it upside down while it dries. All profits from the bag go to the nonprofit Sustainable Surf—specifically, its Waste to Waves program, which focuses on recycling styrofoam packaging.
