EastSport, the leading backpack manufacturer in the U.S. discovered a new way to go "go green". A new line of bags by EastSport, called "The Natural Collection," appeals to parents and families interested in eco-friendly products, bags are 100% biodegradable. The Natural collection: Totes, messengers, duffels and more are 100% biodegradable, made with 100% biodegradable materials - fabric, hardware and dyes. EastSport is not interested in the claim "organic," as that has no set standards, but in being truly 100% natural and eco-friendly. Even the hang tags, which contain seeds, are "natural" - plant them and wildflowers will grow! Price: $40-60. EastSport has gone out of its way to ensure that these bags are environmentally friendly in every sense of the word. Aside from the eco-friendliness, the canvas (100% natural cotton) that these bags are made of is both durable and soft. There are no plastic linings, fillers or threads, and a portion of the proceeds from this line goes to The Ben Jelen Foundation to help support a greener environment.
