While most of us enjoy globetrotting, it is no secret that burning fuel in the vehicles used during travel is one of the major contributors to human-driven carbon emissions. Knowing that there can be a better balance of offsetting this disgusting discharge into our atmosphere, Projectkin of Copenhagen is introducing the Kin Carry-On as a sustainably made piece of luggage, a first for the travel industry.

Designed by Boris Berlin to fit the maximum size requirements for carry-on luggage with most airlines, the Kin’s silhouette resembles a classic roller bag with a telescoping handle and 360-degree spinner wheels for agile handling while navigating the terminal. The exterior of the bag is made from a mixture of flax fibers and biodegradable plastic, adorned with vegetable-tanned leather from dairy cows, which is sealed with a robust number 8 coil zipper and capped with a TSA-approved combination lock, providing a water-resistant shell for those trips that have you caught in the rain. Finished with a flax linen interior, the biodegradable Kin is tough enough to provide years of adventure for any traveler. Pricing is set at $379 each.

Purchase: $379
