Eben will be starting 4th grade next week, so it’s time for a new backpack! We want to choose one that is nice looking, Eco friendly and can be used for several years. Here are some of the options that I found.
This Land’s End Backpack is made of 100% recycled fabric and has a locking system for attaching an Eco friendly stainless steel water bottle. I like that it is made for kids so it would be the right size and that 100% recycled fabric is fantastic! It can also be monogrammed, which I think is a fantastic way to make sure that you can find your child’s pack if lost at school.
This backpack by Mobile Edge made from an Eco friendly canvas and has a lifetime warranty. I love that it has a lifetime warranty, that would be great since it would be used by a child.
This Osprey Pack is made from 72% recycled materials including buckles made from 100% reground buckle scrap. I love that this is a perfect dual purpose pack, could be used for school during the week and hiking on the weekend.
Or, if you are crafty, you can make one like the first photo from Make Me Studio. Wow! I would love to make a backpack like that.
I think we will be ordering the Land’s End pack, it has everything that we are looking for, including the ability to have it monogrammed and will look super cute with his shoes!
What type of backpack does your child use for back to school?
Do you use the backpack for other activities as well?
Would you pay more for a backpack if you knew it would last longer?
