Collections: Backpacks, Bags + Cases
Once a cement bag, now a lightweight and waterproof carrier: this recycled backpack is an essential for the eco-conscious individual. Perfect for a laptop or books with plenty of space. Hand-crafted by villages in Cambodia, for every backpack purchased, we will hand-deliver a school bag to a child in Africa or Asia. Simple as that.
Features + Components
The idea is simple: you buy one ethically made, recycled bag or related Elephant Branded product and we give one ergonomically designed school bag + kit to a child in Africa or Asia. We pay a fair, competitive wage to local villagers in Cambodia who make the bags out of locally-sourced, recycled materials. Not only do they receive a reasonable wage, they also learn valuable skills that permit them to have a sustainable, effective way to get out of poverty.
