I've been a longtime fan of BAGGU for their eco-cred and their utilitarian accessories. And now they've really won me over with this leopard print backpack. Unlike many backpacks, this version features a zippered side pocket large enough to fit a phone, sunglasses, keys, metrocard, etc. and accessible without having to take the entire bag off. It's also incredibly lightweight; it's made from a durable recycled cotton canvas.
BAGGU's recycled cotton canvas is made from pre-consumer, recycled cotton; cotton scraps recovered during the creation of other cotton products like t-shirts and socks that would otherwise have gone to a landfill. It is even more environmentally responsible than organic cotton.
