It’s not been that easy to get away from it all recently thanks to Covid 19 but we are hopeful that things will start to return to normal soon.
And when they do, we’re going to be traveling with Away luggage and we think you should too.
Carbon Neutral Creations
Firstly, we love their manufacturing ethos. Their material choices aren’t perfectly environmentally friendly but to overcome that – they build luggage that’s meant to last for a lifetime.
If you’re not going to throw it out then it’s not going to end up in a landfill ruining the world for future generations.
Any truly environmentally friendly luggage would fall to pieces after a single use or two with existing technology.
They have, however, cut out all carbon emissions from their manufacturing process and that’s an awesome thing to have done.
Life-Changing Travel Experiences
The company has also sponsored over 6,000 students from diverse backgrounds to travel the world.
This means that they’ve been able to make meaningful connections with other cultures, races, etc.
Lower Cost Luggage!
Of course, this is all very nice but what’s in it for you as a traveler?
Well, Away’s business model means that their luggage is lower cost than similar premium luggage because they’ve eliminated much of the waste from their supply chain.
In particular, their direct to customer sales channel means you’re not paying retailers for their contribution to your luggage.
The Big Away Difference: The 100 Day Guarantee
Finally, the best thing about Away is simple. You have 100 days after taking possession of your luggage to decide if you like it.
If you don’t? Just send it back and they’ll give you your money back – no questions asked.
