Auckland-based eco bag maker Eco Bag has been awarded the prestigious Eco Bag Prize in London for its “uniquely innovative eco bag clip design.”
The competition, which is open to brands from around the world, will be presented on Wednesday in London, where Eco Bag will compete against brands like Levi’s, Levi’s 501 jeans and the popular Eco bag.
“It is an incredibly exciting time for our eco bag industry, with a global appetite for a fully engineered eco bag and a growing number of consumers who are willing to try out our innovative designs,” said Eco Bag founder and CEO John O’Brien.
“The winner of this year’s Eco Bag competition will be awarded the Eco Bag prize.
This will give our designers the chance to work on their next eco bag concept, which we are very proud of and which we look forward to sharing with our audience.”
O’Brien, who grew up in New Zealand, founded Eco Bag in 2015 after hearing about the problems of plastic bags in the home.
“We were initially looking at the idea of eco bags as a way of saving the environment, but we realised that the cost of making a traditional eco bag was prohibitive,” he said.
“There was also a problem with making eco bags with a standard plastic casing.
We were looking at a range of different options, including traditional eco bags and eco bags made from recycled materials.”
Eco Bag’s designs are designed to be as lightweight as possible, and are designed for use in homes, cars and warehouses.
It also has the ability to be carried on the person and used in environments where a conventional eco bag would be impossible.
“This year, Eco Bag’s design team is bringing to the market the world’s first fully engineered organic eco bag,” O’Briens said.
“The clip is designed to fit inside your wallet or wallet case, making it easier to carry around in your bag or purse.
The clip is also very flexible, allowing you to clip it to anything that can be used as an outlet for air and water.
Eco Bag is an environmentally conscious brand that wants to offer the best products for the best people, so it’s very exciting to see this technology on the market.”
To win the Eco Bags Eco Bag, Eco Bag must design a reusable eco bag that will be able to be reused and be recyclable, including with traditional ecobags.
Eco Bags is also awarded the “ecosport” prize, which allows brands to enter the contest for their own designs.
The contest is open only to brand names, and Eco Bats will compete with other brands and other eco bag manufacturers in order to win the prize.
