People ask me on Instagram so often about Vegan and fair backpacks for the university and school! that I decided to write a blogpost entirely about the different options.

I missed the start of the school and university year, but I think it’s always worth a look for a smart and practical backpack! Today’s recommendations are, in my opinion, suitable for school, university and work! All of them are vegan and as sustainable as possible. Honestly, I’m not 100% sure about just how sustainable the bags from the brand Matt & Nat really are. But from my own experience, I know that they are very durable!

  1. Ich habe letztes Wochenende auf einem kleinen veganen Straßenfest ein cooles Startup kennengelernt. Die beiden Gründer haben ihren Camper verkauft, um vegane Rucksäcke aus Kork herzustellen, ‘Sperling Bags’. Cool, dass es in dem fairen und veganen Bereich immer mehr Auswahl gibt 🙂
