The purchase of a Stone+Cloth mountain-inspired backpack provides much-needed funds to children in Tanzania to allow them to go to school.
Formerly known as Benson Backpacks, the company has rebranded itself and is now working with the Knock Foundation; donating $10 from the sale of each knapsack to support their education program.
Founded by Matthew Clough, the social enterprise's partnership with the Tanzania-based Knock Foundation provides funding allocated to give tuition assistance, school supplies and meals for students to those who need it and would not be able to afford to attend school otherwise.
The manufacturing of the bags takes place in California, ensuring quality-made goods while also providing employment opportunities for locals -- providing a positive impact to those in the United States and abroad.
