Teaching my kids to be environmentally responsible is a lesson I hope to instill in them and hope they carry on to others. Just by following and reading other blogs, I know there are a ton of people who are more environmentally conscious and aware than I am. However, I try to do my small part.
Two people who have taken recycling to a whole new level are Ryan and Anne, the married couple behind Instinctive. The company was born with the purpose of creating affordable, quality bags and backpacks that are sustainable.
All messenger bags, backpacks, and totes at Instinctive are made from 100% recycled material, from the hardware and webbing to the polyester. In addition, Instinctive has a Lifetime Takeback Policy where you can return your bag for repair or replacement. You will receive any new in stock bag or backpack directly for 10% off wholesale cost, plus shipping. Your used bag will be donated to an underprivileged child. As if that wasn't enough to consider this company admirable, they also donate up to 3% of sales to aid the WILD Foundation, an internationally acclaimed conservation organization.
I received the Bamboo Messenger bag and noticed that just because it's made from recycled material, it is not flimsy or low-grade. It features a panda/bamboo design on the outside with a different panda/bamboo design on the inside. Waterproof coating on the underside of the body fabric makes it simple to wipe clean. The shoulder strap pad helps ease the weight on your shoulders. The compartments are large and there are closures that click together to keep it secured shut. I like the overall design of this messenger bag. It holds several items and seems like it is built to last through many uses.
One person will win a Bamboo Messenger bag, like the one pictured above.
