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.

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!

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.

Pros:

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

Can't wait for more colors in the future!

Sometimes sustainable products lack quality/affordability compared to non-ethically sourced products - happy to say that Thread's backpack looks to be the best of both worlds. You'd never guess that the fabric is recycled and the price point is actually cheaper than comparable less sustainable bags.

Pros:

Sustainable, cheap and durable

Cons:

Availability (get one quick!)
