Db is a Norwegian sustainable travel bag company that offers sophisticated and functional luggage for globetrotters, professionals, and weekend explorers. Db has won multiple ISPO design awards for its innovative features, including integrated TSA-approved locks and a Patented Length Adjustment System™. The company’s design philosophy is “Capable, yet elegant. Built to last. Less, but better.” Db’s luggage is available in a wide range of prices, from $29 to $899.

Db’s eco-friendly practices are evident in its use of recycled materials for its luggage. The company’s hard-shelled luggage features a 70% recycled polycarbonate shell and 100% GRS-certified recycled polyester lining. Db’s soft-sided options feature other recycled materials like recycled nylon, dope-dyed polypropylene, and polyethylene foams and hardboards. Db’s weatherproof coatings are PU-based and PFC-free, and most fabrics have bluesign® and/or OEKO-TEX certification, making it truly non-toxic luggage.

Db’s supply chain and labor practices are also ethical. Each recycled suitcase or accessory is made in one of six factories in Vietnam, China, Sweden, Bangladesh, and Tunisia where workers are protected by their ILO and UN-based Code of Conduct. Tier 1 factories must have a third-party CSR audit or verified assessment in the Higg Facility Social & Labour Module (FSLM) as well as the Facility Environmental Module (FEM). Db hopes to audit all tier 2 suppliers by 2025.

Db is committed to reducing its carbon footprint and has been measuring and publishing its scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions for several years now with the goal of reducing them year by year to reach targets set in the Paris Agreement. Db offsets its emissions through gold-standard verified carbon offset projects with CHOOOSE. The company’s Roadmap to Net Zero includes launching circular products and a rental program by 2025 and using 90% recycled materials and 100% renewable energy at the tier-1 supplier level by 2030.

Db’s luggage is lightweight and easy to maneuver, especially with the four-wheel system that prevents tipping when making a mad dash to catch a connecting flight. The quality is top-notch and feels like a premium piece of luggage should, making it an excellent investment for those who want to travel in style and with sustainability in mind. Db’s fulfillment centers in the US and Europe make it perfect for sustainable luggage UK shoppers as well.
