The only thing better than flaunting new, super sleek luggage on an overseas adventure is flaunting slick new luggage that’s also environmentally sustainable. And now you can do both, thanks to National Geographic, which has rolled out a brand new 90 percent-recycled luggage range created using technology that uses 100 per cent post-consumer recycled plastic bottles.

It’s as good an excuse as any to get your hands on a new suitcase, we say.

Each year, nine million tonnes of plastic waste ends up in the ocean, most of which will stay there for more than 450 years. And, for over 130 years, National Geographic has been a leader in establishing partnerships with companies that are as environmentally conscious as it is, making this partnership with Courier Luggage an absolute no-brainer.

A carry-on bag is made from 85 plastic bottles, a medium-sized suitcase from 118 bottles, and a large suitcase from 144 bottles – all of which have been recycled.

But don’t for a second think the make of the new National Geographic Collection compromises luxury or function. Each piece is super strong, lightweight, and comes kitted out with cool features like anti-scratch properties and built-in USB ports. Plus, the luggage comes in a chic range of styles and colours, making them perfect for any kind of traveller.

The National Geographic  range also uses up to 50 percent less power in its manufacturing process, dramatically reducing electricity. It also ensures an enormous reduction in the use of oil-based products entering the factory, which gets almost all of its power from solar.

The best place to get your hands one of these bad boys is the Qantas Shopping Rewards Store, meaning you might just be able to score one completely free by using your Qantas Points.

Be quick, because you can purchase a piece from the new National Geographic collection from the Qantas Shopping Rewards Store for 50 percent off points until 20 December 2018.

So, if you’re in need of some new luggage, do your bit in removing bottles from the single-use cycle, reduce the number of bottles in landfill, and invest in a long-lasting product from National Geographic’s new Collection.

National Geographic Luggage is available on the Qantas Shopping Rewards Store, shop using Qantas Points or Points Plus Pay at qantas.com/RewardsStore
