If you’ve been to the San Diego Comic Con in the last few years, then you’ve probably either picked up or seen folks with Dark Horse’s very identifiable big yellow bags. They’re huge bags, great for carrying around a load of con goodies, and priced to move (free). But they probably aren’t the most environmentally friendly things in the world.
This year, Dark Horse is trading in the big plastic bags for reusable cloth ones, per a press release they sent out today:
This year, the company has produced over 20,000 reusable cloth bags, which are made from 80 gsm nonwoven cloth. Each of these bags will feature the iconic Dark Horse logo, along with one of four different logos from popular Dark Horse properties: Star Wars, The Umbrella Academy, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Japanese creative powerhouse CLAMP.
“Dark Horse is committed to doing our share to help the environment. We are firming up our resolve to find new ways to not only reduce our own ‘footprint,’ but also to get the message out,” said Dark Horse president Mike Richardson. “The first step in this new campaign is to move away from our traditional plastic giveaway bags at the San Diego Comics Convention to sturdy, reusable bags featuring a variety of Dark Horse character art.’
All four designs of reusable bags will be available only at the Dark Horse booth (#2615) at Comic-Con International 2009.
