Free EcoHolster Bag for Yokohama Customers
Yokohama Philippines partners with Siklo Pilipinas to produce the EcoHolster Bag which will be given away for free
when customers buy 2 Yokohama tires from October 1 – November 30, 2015.
This giveaway item is made from upcycled tire inner tubes that are sourced from scrap yards. Designed in a rugged
and simplistic manner, the bag holds the basic necessities such as mobile phone, wallet, keys and coins. Named
EcoHolster for eco – environment friendly upcycling concept and Holster – inspired by gun holster design.
Siklo Pilipinas has been creating upcycled products which utilizes used inner tubes and bicycle tires. The company
expanded their operations to accommodate Yokohama’s project which now supports the livelihood of over 40 Taguig
residents. Check Siklo’s Facebook account to see their other products.
One good outcome of using different scrap materials is that every bag has a unique design. Inner tubes have different
textures, patterns and markings creating an unexpected variety of final look.
The product is well accepted by creative and outdoorsy type of people it does not appeal to everybody’s
taste as it takes an amount of appreciation for alternative design and material to see the beauty of it. This is
Yokohama Philippines’ small way of contributing to its worldwide BluEarth concept – being environmentally responsible.
