New Year, New Habits: Consider Recycled Polyester - The Smart Minimalist

New Year, New Habits: Consider Recycled Polyester

As consumers, we all have the power to make a positive impact on the environment through our purchasing choices. One simple way to do this is by choosing to shop for recycled polyester handbags.

Reduced environmental impact:
The production of new polyester has a significant environmental impact, including the consumption of non-renewable resources, such as petroleum, and the release of pollutants into the air and water. By choosing recycled polyester, you can help to reduce the demand for new raw materials and the associated environmental impacts. 

Waste reduction:
It's no secret that our planet is facing a waste crisis. By choosing recycled polyester handbags, you can help to reduce the amount of polyester that ends up in landfills, and instead give it a new life as a stylish and functional accessory. 

Recycling polyester helps to conserve valuable resources, such as water and energy, that are used in the production of new polyester. This means that when you choose a recycled polyester handbag, you're not just reducing waste, you're also helping to conserve important resources.

When shopping for a recycled polyester handbag, it's important to do your research and choose a brand that has a strong commitment to sustainability. Look for brands that use recycled polyester in all or most of their products, and that are transparent about their production processes and environmental impacts.

We haven't seen a tonne of brands using recycled polyester so we recently added Studio Dai to the Smart Minimalist line up! The bags are made locally in the Netherlands with 98% local materials. While they use a variety of materials like recycled polyester, certified cotton and deadstock material they also have a focus on sustainable production. The totes and travel bags are handmade in a safe and pleasant working environment.

This cutie handmade bag comes in a classic black teddy recycled polyester material. It's perfect to use as a clutch, make up bag or toiletry bag!  


This big tote is the perfect travel companion. Made from soft, recycled fabric, it has an oversized silhouette for a dramatic and spacious range. 

By making the choice to shop for recycled polyester handbags, you can help to reduce your own environmental footprint and support a more sustainable fashion industry.
