United – Ecoskies Upcycle Travel Bag Challenge

United Airlines partnered with fashion students from Columbia College in Chicago to imagine a sustainable travel bag made with upcycled advertising materials.

The students were given three days to conceptualize a design using banners previously used at Chicago’s O’Hare airport.

Two winning bags were selected and manufactured by Chicago area based non-profit, the Re:new project.

All proceeds from the sale of these bags will benefit Re:new and United Eco-Skies CarbonChoice project in the Alto Mayo region of Peru.

Sales start on Friday, October 16th, at http://unitedshop.com
