Make your next adventure better for the planet with sustainable backpacks

Posted by David Henning on 12 July 2021

When heading outdoors, it’s important to make responsible choices around the gear you choose. Sustainable shopping is one way to reduce our consumption and waste on the planet.

Thule has recently released their range of environmentally friendly backpacks, which are made from between 50 and 100% recycled material. Their product range makes packing your belongings convenient and elegant. The new range includes equipment for cycling, water and winter sports, laptop and camera bags, and backpacks.

Make your next adventure better for the planet

Made from a minimum of 50% recycled materials, the new Thule laptop and hiking backpacks will keep you in style without compromising on doing your part for the planet. Designed and constructed with recycled materials, these environmentally friendly bags have you covered from home to the office for all your weekend outdoor adventures.

Create your own moments and let your feet carry you to new experiences. Hiking is a great way to see the world at a leisurely pace and with most of us stuck indoors working remotely and doing online school, it’s time to get out there and trekking and enjoy the great outdoors.

The new Thule All Trail X hiking backpacks are constructed with 50% recycled waxed polyester canvas that is five times stronger and 3 times more water-resistant than traditional waxed cotton canvas. The lightweight packs transition seamlessly from outdoor activities to urban adventures and you can attain the perfect fit with full adjustability and choose from three distinct sizes.

Access all your gear through the front shove-it pocket, accessible from both inside and outside of the bag, and keep your phone and snacks within reach in the convenient hip-belt pockets. Stay cool with the breathable back panel and keep all your gear dry during storms with the high-visibility, removable rain cover.

The new Thule Notus and Indago backpacks have been given the prestigious bluesign® stamp of approval, a system that provides safer and more sustainable environments for people to work in and everyone to live in. Powered by a holistic approach, Bluedesign Technologies traces each textile’s path along the manufacturing process, making improvements at every stage from the factory floor to the finished product.

Jamie Owen, marketing manager for Thule SA explains, “As a business its important for Thule to contribute to a more sustainable world through innovative high-quality products, manufactured responsibly, that inspire people to live an active life in the great outdoors – today and tomorrow.”

Available in a myriad of colours that include Olivine, Aegean Blue and Blackest Purple, all the boxes are ticked with the new backpacks made from 100% recycled materials will keep your laptop protected in the elevated padded pocket and the zippered side pocket allows for quick access to snacks, key cards and accessories. The two side pockets also make it easy to access water bottles and power cables.
