Mobile Edge makes Checkpoint Friendly Laptop Bags from corn

Mobile Edge ScanFast Collection with Sorona Material

Mobile Edge, the industry leader in innovative and stylish laptop computer carrying cases and travel accessories has teamed up with DuPont™ and incorporated their new polymeric material Sorona® as the main material for their new ScanFast™ laptop cases.  This pioneering material is produced partially with Agricultural Feedstock (corn stocks) that reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 63 percent when compared to typical petroleum based Nylon or Polyester production.

Mobile Edge designed their new Checkpoint Friendly Laptop Case Collection with this new renewable resource which reduces energy consumption during production by 30 percent, reducing our dependency on oil and petrochemical products. The Sorona® fibers are soft and extremely stain resistant with high strength and stiffness qualities.

“We are delighted to be leading the category in the use of environmentally friendly materials,” said G. David Cartwright, President & CEO, Mobile Edge. “It is our goal for Mobile Edge to establish a standard for producing truly Eco-Friendly Laptop Cases.  Our new ScanFast cases are not only the smart way to travel, but smart for the environment as well!”

The TSA has announced guidelines that allow travelers with properly designed carrying cases to pass through security checkpoints without removing their laptops.  Mobile Edge has responded by creating the ScanFast Collection, each case is uniquely designed to provide an unobstructed security scan of the computer.  Backed by a Lifetime Warranty, the new ScanFast 2.0 Collection consists of a stylish briefcase, traditional messenger bag and a backpack all priced at $99.99 each.  All three styles are in stock and shipping from the Mobile Edge facility in Anaheim, California.

Mobile Edge continues to expand the laptop carrying case category by offering new, innovative and smart designs that fuse fashion trends with form and function, creating a brand that makes a positive statement about today’s mobile computing lifestyle.
