Creating Eco-Friendly Fashion
That is impossible to forget.
New York City is the center of the creative universe. Everywhere you look from the buildings that make up the skyline to the fashion trends being worn by its citizens, NYC is an artistic playground. The billboards that adorn Times Square are no exception, and are works of art that deserve to live on long past their advertising campaign ends. Our team recognizes the creative energy that goes into these billboards and give them a new life once they are taken down. With Remember Me Green’s line of billboard bags, you can carry a piece of NYC with you wherever you go.
RMG’s bags are made from the lavish billboards you see throughout NYC. Because of this, no two bags are alike. We get our inspiration from these billboards and create a specific design each time we acquire their durable vinyl. Not only is each bag absolutely one-of-a-kind, but they give these billboards a fresh new life in the world of eco-friendly fashion.
After we acquire the billboard material and craft our design, it’s time for our team to get to work on the construction process. The vinyl is brought to our facility in Long Island, NY where the material is hand cut for the best artistic designs. Once cut, each unique item is thoroughly cleaned, then steam pressed and sewn right in our facility. Each RMG product tag contains a scannable QR code so customers can learn about where their product came from. The QR code also teaches our customers the environmental benefits of shopping with us.
In 2012, our founder, Jillian Brown was inspired by the creativity of the billboards in New York City. When she learned that the billboard material was discarded into landfills after their campaign, Jillian became even more inspired. She knew that all of this vinyl could be put to better use. Jillian presented her first design to friends and family and received such an enthusiastic response that she knew she was onto something. Since then, RMG has taken off in a way that not only propels fashion forward, but helps reduce waste by repurposing material that would be thrown away. Imaginative ideas for upcycling is what fuels the fire for the RMG team. We look forward to being a voice in the green fashion world for years to come.
