The ‘Gwanghwamun Writing Board’, which has been guarding one side of Gwanghwamun Square for over 30 years, has been reborn as an eco-friendly bag.

Kyobo Life Insurance announced that it will sell messenger bags made by upcycling waste materials from the Gwanghwamun text board until April 28. Upcycling is a compound word of upgrade and recycling, and refers to the creation of new products using waste resources. It is different from general recycling in that it adds new value to the recycling process by adding design and usability.

This messenger bag was made by reprocessing a waste banner from the Gwanghwamun font that changes to different texts for each season. Because the banner that changes every time is used as a material, there is no product that has the same shape. The colors are also different. Thanks to that, all products became ‘one and only bags in the world’.

The Gwanghwamun text messenger bag was produced in collaboration with the global upcycling brand ‘Nukk’. However, the price was lower than that of Nukkak’s existing products. In addition, the fact that the strap of the bag was treated as a car seat belt is noteworthy. All materials used in the bag have gone through processes such as washing and sterilization. As of April 21, 50 of this product, which is being produced and sold in total, were sold out.

Kyobo Life Insurance announced that it introduced this product as part of its ESG management. All proceeds from the sale will be donated to environmental groups to help build school forests in elementary schools in Korea.

An official from Kyobo Life Insurance explained, “We will do our best to spread good influence by making a way for good consumption for the planet to lead to donations.”
