Returning To School This Fall?
Thenknow there isn’t an item quite as important asbackpack. For starters, it needs to be comfortable—and stylish. It should hold allbooks and keeplaptop safe. Better yet, it would be great to have a bag that’s also water resistant for rainy days. And it should have a side pocket. Hopefully, one big enough for storingwater bottle or coffee mug.
What’s most important to us though, is to find a backpack that is ethically-made—a bag that is kind to its makers and the environment. While not all of these backpacks have the features described above (some come close!), they are all ethical and sustainable. Most are also created to last not only for one school year but for generations. This means less waste and a bagcan pass down or keep using even afterschool days are over.
Whether moving to college, starting high school, or have children who are starting school this year, here are some of the most stylish, functional, and responsibly-made backpacks we’ve found on the market.
