The Samsonite Magnum Eco range is crafted from recycled plastic waste
Made from recycled plastic yoghurt cups and plastic bottles, Samsonite’s Magnum Eco collection is the first suitcase made with post-consumer recycled plastic.
This new green range from the luggage giant is the fruit of several years of research and development and collaboration with Quality Circular Polymers (QCP), the recycling joint venture of SUEZ and LyondellBasell.
Breathing new life into plastic waste and reducing the use of virgin materials, the collection utilises the brand’s Recyclex material technology, with shells composed of recycled polypropylene and the inside fabric made from recycled PET bottles. The large case, for example, uses recycled plastic waste equivalent to 483 yoghurt cups and 14 plastic bottles.
The Magnum Eco is not only made from environmentally responsible materials but is also among the lightest in its category: the large case weighs in just 4.1kg. The Magnum Eco collection comes in four sizes: cabin (55cm), medium (69cm), large (75cm) and XL (81cm). In keeping with the eco theme, the new collection is available in five colours inspired by nature: forest green, ice blue, maple orange, midnight blue and graphite. samsonite.com
