Unique, Sustainable And Versatile Bags Made From Up-cycled Billboards and Vinyl Mesh

Over 500,000 tons of billboards are printed on and disposed of every year, adding a tremendous amount of waste to already overflowing disposal sites, and using massive amounts of energy. Misprinted billboards are also discarded, seemingly unsuitable for display or any other use… until now. On May 5th,Gili will launch a Kickstarter campaign in hopes to raise money for production Gili bags, unique and versatile bags created from upcycled billboards and vinyl mesh.

Founded by Vail Valley resident and Vermont native, Derek Redd, Gili has created three Gili bags for all sports and outdoor occasions, and has combined durability and function with fashion and style. Each billboard bag is one-of-a-kind and the mesh gear bags come in a wide variety of colors. All materials are sourced in the US and the bags are hand-made in Colorado.

Redd explains Gili’s goal is to “reduce waste and raise awareness towards a sustainable future.” In further support of this goal, 2% of all profits from upcycled products will be donated to the Nature Conservancy.

Kickstarter rewards range from being one of the first people to get their hands on the Gili bag or adventure filled vacations that have never been offered before: paragliding, rafting, skiing in Colorado, and scuba diving in Mexico.
