Cornflower Blue | "Hackney" Backpack
Introducing our first next-generation backpack, ‘Hackney’ - sustainably & ethically made with our 100% recycled & recyclable fabric.
Instead of the conventional rolled top, we’ve sewn magnets in, so you can close the top easier and quicker. The grab handles also have hidden magnets to keep them together, without the need for any fiddly attachments.
Combined with all the other features, we’ve made our backpack streamlined, uncluttered and contemporary, while improving its functionality at the same time!
Let’s be kind to the planet. Join the revolution.

Our reusable bags are made from recycled RPET premium nylon which comes from old plastic bottles. Unlike other brands out there, the material we use is made from 100% used plastic.
The bags are made from one piece of material to minimise waste. Further, the packaging our bags are posted in is cardboard and 100% recyclable.
END OF LIFE
Kind Bags are strong and versatile for any occasion including shopping, travelling, gym, organisation and more. We are sure that your Kind Bag lasts for a very long time and would become important part of your everyday life, and also that at one point, you will find that your beloved Kind Bag may have reached the end of its life.
Kind Bags are 100% made from rPET (recycled polyethylene terephthalate), which is 100% recyclable. Unfortunately the country does not yet offer consistent recycling system and facility across the nation, and if you're in doubt, we recommend you to send your beloved Kind Bag to us, to ensure it reaches the right place to be recycled, not end up in the landfill or anywhere else.
To arrange the delivery of your old Kind Bag to us, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Once the whole process is complete we also offer you 20% off discount for your next Kind Bag purchase.

HOW IT STARTED
Back in 2019, our founder Maria started Kind Bag with her own savings with a big mission to combat plastic pollution.
Since then, so many of you joined her mission and Kind Bag has now rescued over 2.2 million plastic bottles from going to landfill and the ocean.
COME SAY HI
We are a small, young and passionate company based in Hackney, London, established in 2019.
We're currently a team of four + one dog, working together towards our big mission. We're very busy every day with lots of different things, from designing every single bag, developing new products, organising photoshoots, speaking to customers like you, taking our dog Wispa out for a walk, and more!
Why choose "100% recycled" material?
There're so many different bags out in the market to choose from - from cotton, plastic, paper and more. There's of course a reason why we're going for 100% recycled RPET material.
Unfortunately some "eco" bags are not actually ecological for the environment. Except for the plastic pollution in the ocean and landfill, plastic bags are actually the most environmentally-friendly option. Cotton and paper bags actually cost so much more energy to produce, and you need to reuse 7,000 to 20,000 times to have same cumulative environmental impact (water use, energy use, etc.) as a classic plastic bag (source: Denmark’s ministry of environment and food).
So, we believe retrieving plastic waste before polluting the ocean or be stuck in landfill for several hundred years, is a kinder option for our reusable bags.
The bag is extremely practical, as it has a lot of pockets (including space for water bottles), is super light and its size can be adjusted to fit the volume of the stuff it contains. It’s also elegant enough and goes with a lot of different colours and styles. I’ve now used it while travelling but, also, for work. I recommend it 100%!
It’s really pretty, functional and well made. For me it has the perfect day trip size, with enough space for a 16“ Laptop. I love the design because it can go with any style and it never feels out of place whether I dress smart, casually over-the-top or just sporty which is a problem with a lot of bags! I love the smart application of magnets to hold the handles together and to fix the fold on the top. I’m looking forward to using this backpack for a long long time :)
I love the sunshine yellow. The bag is very comfy to wear whilst walking and cycling. I can fit in my water bottle and umbrella easily in the side pockets. The very front pockets are a bit tight but there is so much space inside the bag with separate areas for things that it doesn't matter. Overall, I am very pleased with my new bag.
My orange backpack was an absolute success! All the pockets and compartments made my life so much easier in transit. Everything was in its place and to hand when needed. Love the colour and the ethics also. I hope I’ll have it for years to come!
Lovely blue bag comfortable to wear good size bottle pouches, internal zip and laptop section. Used for hiking and served me well and it looks so much nicer than a hiking bag!
