Be Pack's cloth backpacks are designed to work just as hard for you as well they do for the planet. From each backpack sale, $10 is put towards the African Education Program, and for every 20 bags sold, this provides a child with a year's worth of education, food and school clothing, ensuring that a child has a chance for a bright future.

The Be Pack backpacks themselves are made of cotton canvas, which is resistant to water and mildew as well as UV rays, so that the brilliant patterns printed on them don't fade out in the sun. Stitched on the inside of each backpack is a special "Hope Patch," which is a handwritten message from a child in Zambia that serves as a reminder for the good each backpacks does.
