JanSport partnered with a sustainable designer for an upcycled clothing collection made out of their backpacks. First, the brand found ways to support young people’s mental health and now, they’re dabbling in sustainable fashion. They’re teaming up with upcycle artist Nicole McLaughlin for a charitable, six-piece, “one-of-one kind” upcycled collection, which reimagines some of JanSport’s most classic backpack styles. Fans can win one of the six “avante-garde styles” by visiting the brand’s site and purchasing a $5 sweepstakes entry ticket. All proceeds from the ticket sales will be donated to the Slow Factory Foundation, a nonprofit focused “on climate and supporting environmental impact through education.” (PRNewswire)
