Samsonite OutLab and the European Outdoor Trade Fair – For the Respect of Our Environment


London, June 2008. Samsonite OutLab and the Europe Outdoor Trade Fair will join forces this July at the Outdoor show in Friedrichshafen, to try to raise awareness and greater commitment to the respect and protection of our planet.

Everyone present at the this year's show will be able to take part by simply bringing back the plastic holder of their name badge to certain drop-in points and slip them into the Samsonite OutLab's eco-friendly Terrea bags at those points after the show so this plastic can be recycled. As an extra incentive, participants are asked to include their business card to have a chance to win an exclusive bag from this Terrea collection. These “green” drop-points will be located at 6 different fair entrances and at the Samsonite OutLab booth. This is a small effort that we hope will help illustrate the fact that everyone can be involved and we all can play an important role in protecting Mother Nature and our great outdoors, even through simple actions such as this.

Samsonite OutLab's new Terrea collection is an eco-friendly and attractive collection that embraces simplicity and natural beauty. This line reflects Samsonite OutLab's personal commitment to sustainable development and through the respect and protection of our environment by ensuring that the materials and components used are recycled or reclaimed. To begin, all fabrics used in the bags are 100% recycled! Other unique and environmentally-friendly features include: recycled foam padding throughout all back panels, handles, and shoulder straps, recycled buckles and clips, recycled wheel housings, studs, and pull handles with injected wood, straps cut out of back panel to use even less material, use of coconut fiber – a reclaimed material - in shoulder straps. This is a technical yet functional line, to be used on an outdoor weekend trip, or any adventurous expedition. Great style and design, great recycled and reclaimed materials, and great for the environment.

Samsonite OutLab is an official partner of the European Outdoor Trade Fair 2008.
