Maintaining an overtly eco-conscious lifestyle can mean compromising certain luxuries, leaving you riding a bike to work instead of driving, not taking decadently extended showers, and halting production on your manatee-fueled time machine. Making sure you don't have to compromise on what hauls your crap, Nau Bags.
Eco-mad outfitter Nau's just dropped their inaugural line of bags and travel accessories, the latest in their growing arsenal of highly functional, rugged, and thoughtfully designed 100% sustainable gear made from fully recyclable materials, although you probably shouldn't redeem them for 5¢, no matter how curious you are as to Bazooka Joe's crazy exploits. The fun starts with the Motil Pack, a long, narrow backpack in either "caviar" or "earth" colorways, made from polyester canvas and a waterproof laminate, with recycled aluminum buckles and two padded shoulder straps, and the single-strapped Motil Ped, a boxier, compact version of the Pack that adds a padded laptop compartment, for holding your Etch-A-Sketch. The Fluent line reps more substantial totage, like the Traveler duffel made from organic cotton and canvas, with padded hand straps, an exterior organizer zip pocket, and three interior pockets; the Tote, a more streamlined version of the Traveler with a lone inside pocket; and the Brief, a messenger with two front zipper pockets, a padded laptop sleeve, an interior organizer pocket, and a snug front flap that's secured shut by passing small flaps through loops on the side, a unique closure you'll have down in no time thanks to your exhaustive girdle experience.
If you don't have enough possessions to fill a bag, they've also got a couple canvas wallets and something called the Stash, a tri-fold case made from recycled wool with 4 pockets that can hang from a hook to hold travel toiletries, which even without a functional time machine, foretells a future of you actually grooming yourself.
