Targus, a leading company in manufacturing laptop cases and mobile computing accessories announced eco-smart backpacks at IFA. The range of backpacks and cases announced by Targus is made from 70% recycled plastic. The material is nickel-free and the zips are recyclable as well. At a point in time when everyone is looking for a sustainable solution for plastic, Targus has taken a step forward by using recycled plastic bottles to manufacture backpacks and cases.
The recycled plastic has been engineered to offer durability, protection, and organization. The range of products includes seven products for an active work-life balance. The backpacks, briefcases, and sleeves were showcased at IFA 2019, in Berlin.
Huw Bush, Global Product Manager, says: “The sustainability challenge is one we all face globally. We understand the role businesses have to play in improving how products are manufactured, used and what happens to them at the end of life. The EcoRange is our first step towards making a difference. We are using recycled materials, like plastic bottles, as much as possible throughout the range. Our factories and materials are compliant with BSCI and GRS too.
