Tag That Bag
Are you tired of trying to spot your black bag in a sea of black suitcases on the airport luggage carousel? Instead of picking up the paper tag at the bag check, get a recycled-content luggage tag that will be easy to spot and encourage others to think about recycling.
These tags are durable, so you won’t be scribbling your address at the last minute, either. You can find luggage tags made from old maps, tropical print fabric from old shirts, recycled tire tube rubber, used rice and feed bags, old bicycle chains, and more.
Ask about recycled luggage tags at your favorite gift store, look for them at craft fairs, or search online for “recycled luggage tags.”
