I have been searching for a sustainable and plastic free backpack for what seems like forever when I came across BAGGU and I fell in love! Not only do they have an amazing range of cotton bags, but 65% of the cotton is recycled!
This backpack is a great size and is like a magic bag as it packs WAY more than you think! It's perfect for every day use when you need to carry all your reusables to avoid single use plastic!
It will easily hold a reusable water bottle, lunch box and your valuables!
A simple canvas satchel for daily essentials. Roomy, but still neatly sized.
- 10.5 in. W x 15 in. H x 5 in. D.
- Two adjustable straps.
- One interior and two exterior side pockets.
- 100% cotton canvas (65% recycled).
- Drawstring and flap closure with metal snap.
Nearly all of our cotton canvas bags are made from 65% recycled cotton made from pre-consumer waste recovered during the creation of other cotton products (like t-shirts and socks) that would otherwise have gone to a landfill.
When cotton is recycled, the process breaks down its natural fibers, resulting in shorter “staple” fibers than would be found in virgin cotton. Spinning together recycled and virgin cotton fibers results in a more sustainable canvas fabric that still meets our high standards of strength and durability.

WHY I LOVE THIS
Every time I buy something I think "is there a more eco alternative out there" and 99% of the time the answer is YES! That's when I came across BAGGU on my search for a sustainable backpack and I loved them.
They are super hard to come across in the UK and the company I ordered from it arrived in TWO plastic bags! That's when I decided to go right to the source and stock them myself so you can have access to another awesome brand without the unnecessary plastic packaging!
BAGGU did say their wholesale orders contain some plastic but they are looking to cut this out - if I can have enough buying power with them then this could be a possibility to make another change and I guarantee I will not send you ANY plastic with the bag!
