THREAD INTERNATIONAL A Better Backpack

The bag that does it all, made from recycled plastic bottles

get it

Move seamlessly from work to the gym to dinner with Thread's #ABetterBackpack! Starting with our 100% recycled canvas made from discarded plastic bottles, we engineered a bag that could actually keep up all day, every day. Designed with thoughtful details and responsible fabric, you can look good and feel good while getting stuff done.

    Pros: 

    Amazing design and mission. Thread proves you don’t have to sacrifice fashion in order to help the environment and other people.

    Cons: 

    Have to wait a couple months to get it, but it seems worth the wait for how much good it’s doing.

    I cannot wait to get my #betterbackpack. The features look like the bag has enough space for everything I need and I feel great about my purchase because I know it gets plastic off the ground and out of the ocean, and employs good people in the process. So excited!

    Jane Blaugrund has never used this product.
  • Pros: 

    Functional, good looking - ethically, socially, and environmentally responsible!

    Cons: 

    Can't wait for more colors in the future!

    I've seen the bag up close- it's awesome! I cannot even believe it is made out of plastic water bottles. It feels and looks like a designer bag for a fraction of the cost.

    Shelly McQuone has used this product for one day.

@anna_0x Thank you, Anna! We spent a lot of time iterating, wear testing, and making changes until we were happy with all of the aspects of the bag. Welcome to the kickstarter community! It's a great place to find cool projects/products.

@ms_halling "This video is no longer available because the uploader has closed their YouTube account." This does not sound very encouraging

@anna_0x hey Anna, that’s bizarre because the video is still showing on our indiegogo page... I’ll check with our team.
