U.S.E.D. – Recycled Seat Belt Bags

By Audrey van Petegem, Senior Editor

I love these bags. In fact, Scott if you are reading this, I would like the Hipster Flat Bag for my Birthday. The company, U.S.E.D. (Unlimited Supplies from Everyone’s Discard) makes these bags completely from discarded seat belts and seat belt buckles, reducing the amount of waste that goes into our landfills.

This family-owned Canadian company was started by a mother/son team. They head out themselves to the auto wreckers to cut out the seatbelts from wrecked cars. They do all the cleaning of the belts and buckles and then sew the bags themselves. Since these bags are made with material that saves lives and are sewn with heavy duty fishing line, they are so strong they will never rip or tear. Being handmade, each bag is unique and you can also choose the seatbelt strap colors that you want.

U.S.E.D. bags are perfect for women and men and students. They have a great selection of hand bags, shoulder bags, briefcases and student bags ranging from $40.00 – $210.00. Perfect gift idea for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and/or Graduation gifts.

By the way, Scott, I would like mine made with Burgundy, Charcoal and Light Grey seatbelt straps. Thanks in advance.

    I would love to comment, but the one that I ordered right from their website and received an order number and confirmation for has yet to arrive. They have even debited my creedit card. My opinion right now is very low. I have sent emails requesting updates on my shipment but have not received any responses. So if you are intersted in the product my recommendation is to find the retail store near you that carries them, do not order from their website.

      Susan, We love this product. Otherwise we would not have written about them. We met the owner and we will forward your concern to them. Please keep us posted on how it goes.

    I love these purses! Purchased one last month…and it’s fantastic! I asked for one in shades of gray, black, and silver and that’s exactly what I received. Super durable and roomy…fits all of my stuff nicely and stands up on its own, doesn’t flop over. The wide straps are very comfortable too. Get one for yourself and keep in mind for gift-giving.
