The duct-tape bags that I’ve been making for several months, featured on BikePortland, attended BikeCraft at MCBF, and have sold on Etsy, are now discontinued.

I cannot, with clear conscious continue to make these crafts and feel like I’m creating something that won’t last very long and is not at all recyclable at its end of life.

I fully appreciate the DIY attitude of Portland and the practicality of my bags, but further examination of resource usage, bag life, and waste created in the construction of each bag has lead me to believe that it is an unsustainable craft.

Thanks to everyone that bought a bag and supported me. I’ll try to take what I learned from this experience and consider designed more sustainable bicycle accessories.
