From a company that is serious about saving the environment, comes a line of gear for transporting your laptops. GreenSmart has sent us their Mandrill laptop bag, which is named after the largest species of monkey, and is also endangered. With the Mandrill, you can store your sweatshirt or a pair of shoes under the bungee cord on the front. Your laptop has its own separate access garage that will fit up to a 16″ laptop comfortably. The Mandrill gives you a large mid-section for your notebooks or texts and a front pocket for the smaller items, along with two side pockets for bottles or cellphones. For comfort, airmesh straps with an integrated handle make this backpack a delight to carry, by hand, or on your shoulders. In addition, 40 bottles are used to make the interior and exterior fabrics. Now, let’s toss this up on our test bench and see just how well this Mandrill does. Will it pass, or will it become extinct?
Our mission is to offer bags that make you feel good. Any brand can make attractive bags and be indifferent to the resources it takes to make them. GreenSmart is different. GreenSmart cares. Using eco-friendly materials and socially responsible labor are two of the most significant ways we have to embed thoughtfulness into the design of a bag. Who doesn’t want to see recyclable materials (plastic bottles) turned into something functional and beautiful?
As Shoreline, we used to make bags from from polyester, neoprene and nylon. Back in the 20th Century that was the only choice we had for durable fabrics. Along with the new numbers, the 21st Century has offered great strides in material options for bag-making and we try to utilize them exclusively. We hope that our commitment will continue to delight consumers and make a difference.
What makes B2B Green?
The fabric in this product, both the exterior and interior, are derived from 100% post consumer recycled plastic bottles. This process is the end result which begins with the collection of bottles, which become ground up, washed to become fiber, spun into yarn and woven into our fabrics. The overall process also uses less energy than making polyester out of virgin chemicals.
The Mandrill is the world’s largest species of monkey. Mandrills live in tropical rainforests and occasionally in the woodlands of Southern Cameroon, Gabon, Equatorial Guinea and Congo.
GreenSmart names their products after endangered animals. In their support, we donate 10% of profits to non-profit organizations helping to create a greensmart planet.
