Saving our planet; one bag at a time

January 8, 2009

Imagine, boots from recycled plastic!!

Chilean industrial design student Camila Labra has invented a whole new concept of “environmentally sound” footwear.

She calls them Dacca Boots (after the capital of Bangladesh because they’ve banned plastic bags there), and they feature an extensive collection of ankle high boots - made mostly out of recycled plastic bags.

The boots are built by fusing several layers of polyethylene plastic shopping bags together, resulting in a resistant material, sturdy enough to mold - while the interior components are covered with quilted cotton fabric, to ensure comfort - these boots are impermeable, non-toxic, lightweight & flexible.
