Best Eco-Friendly Backpacks
Want a Sustainable Backpack? Made from Recycled Materials, these are the Best Eco-Friendly Backpacks available!
Did you know that 90% of the world's plastic has not been recycled, meaning it fills the earth. Over 8 million tonnes of plastic are dumped in our oceans every year. We care about the planet and believe this needs to stop. That's why we created sustainable backpacking bags!
The main material on SunDrift's travel backpack is made from is recycled plastic. These travel backpacks once had a previous life where they roamed the earth as soda bottles, water bottles and food jars, or in other words products derived from PET (polyethylene terephthalate).
To make the travel backpacks, these PET products are collected, sorted and recycled. They are then refined into flakes to create recycled PET that can be turned into products such as these backpacks! Using this kind of technology to recycle waste is a huge step forward to a greener, safer and cleaner planet.
What else makes these the Best Eco-Friendly Backpacks?
At SunDrift we strive to make our backpacking products as sustainable as possible. The packaging each travel backpack is delivered in is also made with recycled materials and our shipping is 100% carbon neutral.
We take offsetting our CO2 emissions very seriously, we have made a commitment: For every 25 backpacks that are sold, a tree is planted on behalf of SunDrift in the west of Ireland.
Planting trees in the west of Ireland.
We work with Hometree, a registered Irish charity, to plant native trees that are to be enjoyed by animals and humans alike. Being part of the reforesting process helps us all reconnect to the Earth and reconnect us to the responsibility we have in protecting it.
