A Detailed Look At The New Pacsafe ECONYL® Collection

As travelers, we all want to experience the beauty this planet has to offer. Unfortunately, plastic is being dumped into our oceans unprecedented rate – 8 million tons every year, with much more going into landfill. If we don’t do something to change this, our playground and home will soon become a wasteland. 

To help become part of the solution to this problem, we have just launched the new Pacsafe ECONYL® Collection. The special release takes nylon waste, like discarded fishing nets, and turns it into the best anti-theft bags. This article is a deep dive into what ECONYL® is, why it’s a better choice for the planet, and which of our six best-selling anti-theft bags make up the collection.

SO, WHAT IS ECONYL?

ECONYL® is a fiber made from recycled plastic nylon waste like discarded fishing nets. It is created by gathering this waste, cleansing of it of any impurities and then spinning it back into regenerated nylon. The unique process means it produces fiber every bit as strong and light as virgin nylon material. It can be remade again and again, endlessly, closing the loop of needing to use new resources in production.  

As well as being a high-quality solution to waste, ECONYL® regenerated nylon is also better when it comes to climate change. It reduces the emissions impact of nylon by up to 80% compared with making the material from oil. Every 10,000 tons of ECONYL® produced saves 70,000 barrels of crude oil from being used and avoids 57,100 tons of carbon emissions from being spewed into the atmosphere. 

It’s for these reasons we’ve chosen ECONYL® as a more sustainable choice for our anti-theft bags. Not only are they more sustainable, they’re also super high quality, meaning the bags will withstand the tests of your travels while helping protect your valuables at the same time.
