Carry it, don’t bury it.

The same people who make the Solio solar chargers have released a whole new line of bags, laptop sleeves, and gadget cases under the “Tread” brand. Each of the items is made from recycled inner tube tires.

Most of the smaller bags look fairly typical, but the “Transient Attache” and the “Sleeve” are really nice looking. The inherent folds of the inner tubes make the material look like animal leather.

Even though the material has been saved from the dump you won’t be getting second-hand prices: the Attache is $200, while the smaller cases are around $20-$30.
