Tentree's Mobius is Made with Upcycled Plastic

Tentree's Mobius is advertised to be the most sustainable backpack on the market and that statement can be justified in a number of ways. For one, the silhouette of the piece is made with REPREVE — a fiber that is created from recycled plastic bottles, and BLOOM algae as protective padding. The sourcing of the materials directly contributes to the environment. For example, BLOOM harvests excess algae and recirculates fresh clean water back to the sources. Secondly, due to the eco-conscious manufacturing approach for the sustainable backpack, tentree uses 45% less energy, 20% less water, and boasts 30% less carbon dioxide emissions than the standard. Finally, the company has been known for its commitment to planting trees for each product sold. Therefore, for a purchase of a sustainable backpack, the label will plant ten trees.
