Heys EcoCase

ecocaseHeys International is certainly not new to the luggage game. Heys’ unique and durable suitcases have been celebrated by the rich and famous and gotten international recognition for its functional, yet stylish suitcases. In fact, the lightweight, yet tough suitcases have also been touted as the “world’s lightest carry-on” and admired for their sleek design. Since “green” seems to be the fashionable buzz word of the moment, it’s no wonder that Heys (renowned for their stylish and trendy luggage) would make an eco-friendly version of their best selling suitcase.

The first in their series of eco friendly products, the EcoCase is made from 100% recycled plastic. By utilizing recycled material to create this new, durable suitcase, not only do you diminish the demand for new materials and resources, but you also reduce the amount of materials that will eventually end up in a land fill somewhere.

The EcoCase is a spinning piece of luggage with 4 wheels. It is very durable and will protect your belongings inside, as it’s made from flexible plastic material (ABS). It is also very lightweight and expandable. The EcoCase is also the first hardside luggage that has “piggy-back strap,” which allow you to pick up and carry your suitcase like a backpack. The inside is fully lined with a built-in divider and mesh pocket.
