Over the next few months, we’re going to be sharing blogs, tips, and tricks to help you have a #SustainableSummer. We’ll highlight the sustainable outdoors accessories you can use when you’re walking, hiking, and exploring the great outdoors.
We’ll also share ideas for how you can transform your wardrobe, whether you want to create the perfect summer capsule wardrobe, beat the airplane luggage hikes, or completely overhaul your wardrobe as sustainably as possible.
Our Sustainable Father’s Day Gift Guide will also be bigger and better than ever before, so watch this space.
For now, we’re going to highlight the sustainable outdoor products that are durable, waterproof, and made from a host of interesting materials. The advantages of these products include the fact they are easy to clean and look after, as well as being unique. If you’re wondering how they’re unique, it’s because of the materials that are recycled and reused.
For instance, this is the Soldier Waterproof Vegan Backpack with Laptop Compartment made from upcycled military tent canvas.
It’s available in two colours (olive or black) and is great for every day commuting as well as special adventures. The tent canvas was especially chosen because of its durability and waterproof qualities. To read the full description, visit this link.
Going for a longer adventure? Hoping to beat the airline baggage price rises? You should consider the Waterproof Roll Top Vegan Backpack!
The storage space (25-30L) can be increased or decreased by using the compression straps on the sides and roll top. This makes it great for travelling and day hikes, especially if you want to take cameras or other tech equipment to help you capture every moment. This backpack includes a 15 inch padded laptop compartment. View the backpack here.
