For World Oceans Week 2021, we've partnered up with sponsor and legacy outdoors equipment company Fjällräven for special edition Kånken Art backpacks, with a mission to keep plastics out of the oceans. Piece by piece.
This is a "mini" version of the Kånken Artbackpack, perfect for both children and adults wanting a smaller backpack -- at approximately 11.5 x 8 inches.
Available in Ocean Deep and Ocean Surface color palettes, this unique design was developed by Swedish illustrator and animator Linn Fritz, with an aim to raise awareness about plastic waste and the health of our oceans. This special edition fabric consists of Fjällräven’s G-1000 HeavyDuty Eco, which is made from recycled polyester and organic cotton. Further, each Kånken Art backpack features a special edition Explorers Club World Oceans Week "Compass Wave" Pin, enamel on gold plating.
This backpack is perfect for carrying a change of clothes for preschool or food on an outing, and as a smart everyday bag for books, water bottles, fruit and more. The shoulder straps are long and adjustable and fit both small and big backs. They can be fastened with a clasp so that they are not in the way when at their tightest. The main compartment has a large zipped opening, which makes it easy to pack and unpack. Two flat side pockets and a zipped pocket on the front. The included PE foam seat cushion is stored in the interior back pocket and also prevents the contents in the main compartment from poking against your back. Handles at the top and slender, adjustable shoulder straps. The logo on the front is reflective. It also has an address label inside the main compartment.
About 71% of the earth ́s surface is covered by oceans. Tragically, estimates indicate that by the year 2050, there will be more plastic in the oceans than there are fish, unless we seriously change our habits and the way we handle our waste. This special edition Kånken Art backpack aims to increase awareness around these problems, but also hopes to inspire change: Since 80% of ocean plastics come from land, our immediate surroundings are a good place to start. Let’s do it together, one piece of plastic at a time.
By purchasing your Kånken Art backpack through The Explorers Club and World Oceans Week, you are supporting the scientific exploration of the oceans, land, air, and space, as well as research and education in the physical, natural and biological sciences.
Please note! The appearance of each backpack will vary slightly due to the patterned fabric.
