How Do We Transform Waste into Valuable Resources?

At SOSBAG, our mission goes beyond simply creating fashion accessories. We are dedicated to transforming unique materials and rescuing valuable resources from oblivion.

How do we do it? Through a process called upcycling, which is much more than a simple recycling practice: it is an art form that honors the technical quality and resistance of materials designed to save lives.

The Story Behind Our Products

The life rafts we rescue are not simply materials; They are products designed for the safety of people in emergency situations at sea. Manufactured to the highest standards of quality and strength, these rafts are intended to be a literal lifesaver for those facing dangers in turbulent waters.

The Recycling Challenge

However, the process of recycling these life rafts is anything but simple. Given its complex composition and the technical materials used in its manufacture, traditional recycling carries the risk of contamination and CO2 emission. We are faced with a dilemma: how can we dispose of these materials responsibly?

The Sustainable Solution: Upcycling

The answer is in upcycling. At SOSBAG, we believe that the best way to address this challenge is to transform these materials into products of greater ecological value. By reusing life rafts to create our stylish bags and cases, we are not only reducing the amount of waste going to landfills, but we are also contributing to the conservation of precious natural resources.

Benefits of Upcycling

Upcycling not only reduces the amount of waste, but also has a positive impact on the environment on multiple fronts. By avoiding the manufacture of new materials, we save energy, water and other natural resources.

Additionally, by reducing CO2 emissions associated with the destruction of waste, or the production of new materials, we are helping to mitigate climate change and protect our planet for future generations.

Join Our Mission

At SOSBAG, we are proud of our commitment to sustainability and environmental responsibility.

Every product we create tells a story of rescue and rebirth, a story of innovation and commitment to a brighter future for our planet.

And you, do you already take it into account?
