Since life jackets have an expiration date, French carrier Air France has decided to recycle its old ones into an exclusive collection of toiletry cases through a partnership with bilum, a company specialized in the transformation of used material. The collection will be available December 7.
The first 400 cases will be launched at noon, on Shopping.airfrance.com and Bilumstore.fr, at the price of €19 for the flat case and €24 for the tube toiletry case.
Bilum has been recycling unwanted material into bags and accessories since 2005.
