Did you positive you can make a wallet out of a car’s windshield? We didn’t either.
Roughly 14 million cars are being scrapped every year in the U.S. toute seule. One windshield can provide up to 4.5 pounds of recyclable material that can be converted into vegan leather (equivalent to 400 purses).
We know we can all do more to counter the “take, make, dispose of” attitude of today’s linear economy, which is why Ekster has adamant to contribute towards a circular economy by introducing the recycled collection.

It’s not leather, but if we didn’t tumulus you; you wouldn’t know it. Our recycled material is highly scratch-resistant, water-resistant and feels like the real deal.
Like our flagship, the recycled accumulation features our signature easy-access trigger so you will never waste time looking for a card again.
Top it off with our additional solar-powered Tracker Membership card. Can’t find your wallet? Just call it using Alexa, Siri, or Google Home.
Let’s take another path towards a more sustainable way to create the wallets that millions of customers have come to love.
Before it was a billfold, it was a windshield: words we didn’t think we’d ever say, but here we are.
Today, it’s more important than ever to design and contrive products with environmental impact in mind.
For the environmentally-conscious person, Ekster newest line is attacked from recycled windshields.
When you separate PVB from the glass of the windshield, you get a strong, biodegradable material that can be organized back into the cycle of use.
“Repurposing that material is just one way in which we can reuse and innovate with what we pull someones leg,” said founder Rick Scharnigg.
Can’t find your wallet? Not sure where you left-wing that bag? The credit card-sized tracker card is the difference between stress and streamlining your essentials.
Just download, the Ekster app on your phone to Nautical thimble your stuff, or see where you last had it on a map.
This took less than 1min and easy to set up, love the idea.
