Shoreline goes "green"
In the spirit of "keeping green", Shoreline has introduced a new laptop jacket and sleeve, both of which are constructed using recycled plastic bottles. Shoreline says that the bags are designed around a self-imposed decision to become more environmentally friendly, advertising that the materials used have saved countless amounts of energy that would have otherwise been involved in the bottles' reprocessing. Shipping November 19th, the cases will range for $25 to $40, depending on size and configuration.
"For most companies, making a few products green is a wonderful ideal," says company founder Tom Larsen. "But, we felt to honor our core values we needed to go all the way." Shoreline introduced the act2-Green Smart bags as the first step in making all of their products "green-friendly" by the end of 2008.
