Since 2020, Monarc has removed over a million single-use plastics from our oceans and landfills and continues to impact the planet and the way you transport.
(The Magazine Plus Editorial): – Boise, Idaho May 27, 2022 (Issuewire.com) – Following the success of its latest Kickstarter campaign, Monarc has been able to divert over a million single-use plastics from our oceans and landfills . After having had such an impact, they asked themselves the question: “What if we did it again?”
“It’s no secret that plastic pollution has become a crisis we can no longer ignore. Every day, more than 60 million plastic water bottles are thrown away and only 9% of them on average are recycled. It harms the ecology of our planet, our food chain and our survival as a species. By choosing to use recycled materials to make our bags, we use resources that are already available to us, reducing our carbon footprint and helping solve the problem of plastic waste.
The new Settra Sling and Wallet – now available on Kickstarter – is made from recycled plastic bottles and is certified plastic negative. With their negative plastic certification, they are able to sponsor global cleanup efforts by eliminating twice the amount of plastic used to make their bags.
The decision to create the Settra Sling and Wallet came from listening to their customers who had been using the current travel set for the past 12 months. They wanted a lightweight option that would work well as a carry-on for travel, commuting, and general day-to-day use.
“We have a passion for design and sustainability. We love the idea of creating a line of bags made from recycled materials and building a company on a mission to make good choices for you and our planet.
The Settra Sling is made from 21 recycled plastic bottles and has a deceptively large packable space of 10 litres. The Sling is designed large enough to carry a Macbook Pro, iPad Pro and a packable lightweight jacket, but small enough to fit perfectly in your travel bag to use for your next adventure.
The Sling has 3 compartments. The front flat pocket is used for quick access with a large zippered mesh pocket and a detachable magnetic key ring. The main middle compartment is large enough to hold books, clothes or technical gear. To keep everything organized, the Sling has an organization system that includes an RFID pocket and a pocket big enough to hold an iPad mini. The third compartment is rigid, anti-static and lined with neoprene and can hold up to a 16-inch laptop.
To ensure there are no limits to space, Monarc has created a system with adjustable straps and G-hooks to carry larger items outdoors.
To complement the Sling, Monarc has designed a compact and easy-to-access wallet made from 4 recycled plastic bottles. The wallet is lightweight, features a flexible elastic webbing pocket to hold notes and change, as well as multiple card slots and a quick access card slot on the front.
Monarc was born on Kickstarter and is excited to return and see what a second campaign will do to help further its mission to end plastic waste.
