Old Street Banner Shopping Bags

Almost every year the Commercial Drive Business Society prints 256 street banners to hang on Commercial Drive to create a colourful atmosphere for the neighbourhood. Eventually these banners are retired. In response to this, Design HQ had a great idea…transform them into reusable nylon shopping bags, with proceeds of the sales going back into the neighbourhood. As of May, 2009, by converting old banners rather than using new nylon fabric, this neighbourhood has avoided 11.8 tons of CO2 emissions, and avoided sending 301 kg of nylon to the landfill.
