New handbag made of recycled truck tire inner tubes
Richmond, Virginia – Passchal, a handbag company in Richmond, Virginia, has introduced a tote bag made of used truck and tractor inner tubes. The company says making handbags out of the material reduces the potential environmental impact of the discarded tubes, which can be expensive and difficult to dispose of. The handbags retail from U.S.$125 – $175.
