Countless plastic bags are destroying our environment. The best way to improve this situation is to reduce usage of plastic bags, so PaperJohn, a backpack-styled shopping bag was born to bring you an eco-friendly way to carry your groceries.
The PaperJohn is an innovative and paper-made shopping backpack that offers you an eco-friendly and convenient way to carry your groceries on your back. As shown in the images, the backpack is made out of 100% kraft paper, and the kraft paper uses the highest possible amount of recycled paper from FSC cultivation.
In addition to the eco-friendly source of the paper, the kraft paper shopping bag is also environment-friendly. If your PaperJohn rips after many uses, you can simply throw it into a trash can without needing to worry about it damaging the environment.
Moreover, the shopping bag features durable construction that can carry about 10 kilograms, and its thickened design ensures the paper bag can withstand rain. Furthermore, another ingenious feature is that the kraft paper can be worn on your back just like a backpack so that you can more easily carry your goods home.
OGATA, the German studio behind PaperJohn is raising fund for the eco-friendly shopping backpack. You can pledging €10 (approx $11 USD) to own the shopping bag. If you’re interested, jump to Startnext for its more details. It will be shipped in March 2016.
