4 Notes

These are really nifty, they’d look amazing if the original billboard design was still left on them even.

Hi, there. I’m sorry to be a buzzkill, but isn’t neoprene really bad for the environment?

(See this post: http://www.thecleanestline.com/2008/05/green-neoprene.html)

I looked at the linked sites, and couldn’t find any information on the particular neoprene they’re using, so perhaps it’s recycled or something wonderful and new?

If not, I’m a tad offended at the greenwashing of putting it in a line called Design With a Conscience.
