When it comes to kids' backpacks, you have a lot of choices. But It can be hard to know where to buy eco-friendly children's backpacks. So, we've got a lineup of environmentally friendly and mom-approved kids' backpacks you'll love. Our favorites are the rainbow backpack and kid's briefcase, but we may be a little bit biased.
Recycled School Backpack
Apple Park's eco-friendly school backpacks are super cute and made from plastic bottles. Each backpack saves 27 water bottles from the landfill. It's a roomy backpack with soft shoulder straps and a mesh pocket on the back to hold school papers.

The kids' backpacks come in fun animals like owls and raccoons. You can even match them with sustainable lunch boxes in the same fun animal. If you're looking for a children's backpack with a name on it, there's a name tag on the back. You may fall in love with this deluxe book pack.
Sustainable Kids Rainbow Backpack
The Sea & Grass Rainbow Backpacks with Pleiades are handstitched and handwoven. Each rainbow backpack takes days to weave by skilled Thai weavers. The backpack for girls is perfect for toddlers or school-aged kids. The adjustable straps make it easy for the sustainable children's backpack to grow with your child.
Sea & Grass offers different rainbow backpack colors, including desert, plum, and earthtone. But if you don't want a rainbow print handsewn, we provide a convertible kids backpack made of natural seagrass fibers. You can even order a personalized backpack with your child's name embroidered on the back.
Or, if you want Mommy and Me matching outfits, pair the Kid's Rainbow Backpack with the Camryn Rainbow Tote. It's a straw beach bag with a handstitched pastel rainbow. We love rainbow-inspired designs and think you will too.
Environmentally Friendly National Parks Backpack
The Rover Pack Mini Canvas by Topo Designs for boys and girls may be the perfect outdoor adventure backpack for kids. The backpack features a water-resistant canvas and cinch top closure. Plus, Topo Designs is definitely a sustainable fashion brand to watch.

Pair the backpack with Sea & Grass Exclusive Luggage. The handmade luggage fits nicely in overhead bins and the right size for a child's first suitcase.
Mini Convertible Kids Briefcase
Our soon-to-be-released Mini Convertible Kids Briefcase is so stinking cute you may want one in both colors (blush and dusty blue). The convertible bag can be a crossbody, backpack, or briefcase. It has a faux leather top with a silver metal clasp and a removable and adjustable strap.
The kid's briefcase makes for a fun and playful day at the office or out on an adventure. It's handmade by Thai artisans using wild seagrass straw. It truly is an eco-friendly kids backpack and briefcase. Plus, a portion of each backpack sold, helps send a child to school through our Areeya Scholarship Fund.
All kiddos need a backpack at some point. But why buy a children's backpack that doesn't last or pollute the environment? Invest in ones that love Mother Earth and inspire moms and kiddos to skip a little. You'll be happy you did.
