Thai Airways International (THAI) has turned old life vests and slide rafts into the “Re-Life Collection” of limited-edition totes and handbags.

Advance orders can be placed online from Thursday onwards until stocks last.

Chansin Treenuchagron, THAI’s acting president, said the airline is operating in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which include waste management and up-cycling existing resources.

The bags come in six styles, with prices starting at Bt390. Some bags may even include the life vest’s serial number.

This “Re-Life Collection” is the first series under the Project: RE operated by THAI employees. THAI says it will continue offering more eco-friendly products to achieve the SDGs.

The bags can be pre-ordered via thaishop.thaiairways.com from Thursday afternoon onwards, until stocks last.
