Paravel Extends 25 Percent Off Carry-On Sale Through November 1
The stylish Aviator hard-shell suitcases were already made with recycled elements, including a lining crafted from 15 plastic water bottles. Plus, they’re marked down 25 percent and carbon neutral now.
To celebrate the one-year anniversary of the launch of its Aviator carry-ons, Paravel is marking both sizes and all seven colors down 25 percent now through November 1 at midnight ET. But that’s not all. The chic and sustainable luggage company founded in 2016 by fashion industry vets Indré Rockefeller and Andy Krantz is also permanently making these suitcases carbon neutral by offsetting all of the carbon emissions generated from producing and shipping the bags.
Additionally, Paravel will offset the estimated emissions from your first domestic flight with the bag—an extra 0.33 tonnes (o.36 tons) of carbon for each Aviator purchase. All carbon offsets will be purchased through the reputable environmental organization Gold Standard.
Considering Paravel’s hard-shell wheeled luggage was already sustainably made with linings crafted from 15 plastic water bottles, as well as recycled polycarbonate shells, YKK zippers, and aluminum handles, these are some of the most ecofriendly suitcases you can buy (other than purchases secondhand, of course).
In addition to being ecofriendly, there are many more reasons we love these timeless bags. The Aviator “Carry-On” is sized to fit in the overhead bins of most international flights, and the Aviator “Carry-On Plus” is slightly larger and is suitable for most U.S. domestic carriers.
Both sizes are available in a variety of stylish colors, including deep green, burgundy, black, navy blue, as well as a cream color with either black or tan trim made from vegan leather. A limited edition color called “Raceway Blue,” a navy suitcase with silver trim, is also still available and part of the sale.
The bags also include carbon steel bearing wheels for frictionless rolling, a TSA-approved lock on the side, an interior compression board, and a removable accessories pouch.
