This is great as an alternative to a briefcase or as a regular backpack for everyday use. Features two roomy internal compartments - one padded to protect a laptop; a large zipped external pocket with pockets for phone, cards etc; and two small side pockets - one zipped and with an eyelet for feeding MP3 player headphones through to the outside.
Padded adjustable shoulder straps make it very comfortable with heavy loads. Made from a durable hemp/cotton mix, with strong zips, this bag will be going strong long after cheap alternatives have fallen apart.
An age-old plant revival reduces toxic chemical use, rehabilitates soils and protects the food chain.
I believe that hemp is going to be the fibre of choice in both the home furnishing and fashion industries.
Hemp is now the height of fashion.
What motivated the founders of the New Internationalist magazine was a high idealism; a real sense that we could change things; that if people knew the facts about what was going on, then they could actually have the wherewithal to campaign and try to make the world a better place.
... we just love supporting the great work you guys do ...
A little about Baladarshan: Baladarshan is a Fair Trade Organisation marketing the products of Chennai slum women working through the SPEED foundation.
New Internationalist Australia is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization, which means we have to stock a percentage of Fair Trade products, and also adhere to Fair Trade practices ourselves. Great for supporting producers rights, and also for our staff.
