First in a series of products under the new line of Green Travel from Heys, the EcoCase is made from 100% recycled plastic, offering environmental benefits such as reducing waste and greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming. The EcoCase is “spinner” luggage with 4 wheels that’s very durable due to its flexible plastic material (ABS) that’s designed to absorb impacts. It’s also lightweight, expandable and has special Piggy-Back straps – which are usually only found on soft-sided luggage. It has a fully lined interior with a built-in divider and mesh pocket, as well as an internal telescopic handle with a push-button locking system.
