Ruben Backpack

27. Oktober 2019

This water-resistant and functional backpack from Sandqvist’s Stream series is constructed from recycled polyester with a waterproof TPU coating

Being ''sustainable where possible'' is not enough

Constructed from 100% recycled polyester with a waterproofing thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) coating. The weave is tight and dense, originally constructed for body armour. Lining in 100% recycled polyester and the trimmings are produced from recycled webbing. The bag is water resistant, not fully waterproof. The polyester is made using 100% recycled materials from post-consumer waste. This reduces energy use and waste, as well as extending the life of the raw material and creating less CO2 emissions than virgin polyester. Manufactured in Vietnam by ASG. ASG is participating in the ILO Better Work-program to secure good working conditions. All suppliers working on Sandqvist products must follow Sandqvist’s code of labour practices for suppliers. The code stipulates minimum requirements for working conditions based on International Labour Organization (ILO) and UN principles. This includes the right of all workers to join trade unions, the right to a living wage, reasonable hours of work, safe working conditions and a legally binding employment relationship. Child labour and all forms of discrimination are strictly banned.
