And how can you recognize fair fashion at all?
Vegan Backpacks - Watch your ecological footprint
First of all it is similar to Fair Fashion products in general with Eco-friendly Backpacks. Basically they are free of all toxins. They have not been treated with unnecessary chemicals, which is not only good for the environment but also for your health, because you probably use your Backpack regularly. Therefore a Sustainable Backpack is not only suitable for environmentally conscious people, but also for allergy sufferers. Toxic substances such as bleaching agents are completely avoided and instead of chemical colours vegetable colours are used. These organic colours are used for various materials, such as cotton or vegetable-tanned leather and produce particularly natural and strong tones.
When producing a Vegan Backpack, fair and social conditions of the workers as well as fair wages and environmental protection are given priority. The applicable guidelines are monitored by independent organisations. A well-known seal giver for fair fashion and Eco-friendly Backpacks are for example the Fair Wear Foundation, Fairtrade or GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard). They guarantee the cultivation and processing of certified organic cotton. Regular controls ensure compliance with these standards. The seals or labels of such institutions make sustainable fashion recognisable for you. Last but not least, sustainable backpacks stand for transparency. Upcycling or recycling is another criterion for environmental awareness and sustainability. A Backpack made of recycled material protects the resources of the environment in its production, as less new polyester has to be produced for production. For example, recycled PET bottles are used in the production of some backpacks. In keeping with the motto: More sustainable fashion = less unnecessary waste.
