— June 20, 2013 — Eco
Travellers looking for a more sustainable option to carrying their belongings around are in luck, because these eco-friendly backpacks will provide a more environmentally efficient way to travel around.

While hiking outdoors or travelling overseas often requires you to look for luggage or knapsacks that are spacious or well-equipped with pockets, these eco-friendly backpacks are targeted more towards those inclined to be more environmentally conscious about their belongings. From backpacks that conveniently feature solar panels for charging devices to those that can creatively morph into other shapes and practical uses, these eco-friendly carriers are offering a more sustainable way to travel around in style.

Perfect for those looking to have something practical yet eco-friendly to carry their belongings in, these unique knapsacks will certainly offer adventurers a positive alternative to other brand name backpacks.
