Back to School shopping at The Ultimate Green Store & Giveaway!


“WEMAKE7 was not compensated for this post. We did however receive free product to review. All opinions are our own.”

 It’s that time of year again! Time to send the kiddos back to school. Maybe you have already started your shopping or haven’t even started yet, either way have I got an awesome store to tell you about.


The Ultimate Green Store is your one stop shop for everything green, and no I’m not talking about the color green. 😉 They have so many products and categories but today we are going to focus on Back to School.

We were sent the Engage Green Recycled PET Backpack to facilitate our review. Having a great Backpack for School is a must! Our children have to walk around with books on their backs and it’s important that they are comfortable during the day.


Product Description:

These backpacks are made from 100% Recycled PET bottles. These post-consumer bottles are turned into high-quality polyester fiber. The fabric is chemically and functionally nearly identical to those made from non-recycled fabrics. The difference is that these bags are made without depleting the Earth’s natural resources. The bag is waterproof, and offers incredible strength, lightness, and softness.

Available in Black/Silver, Red/Black and Blue/Silver.


How neat is that, that a backpack can be made from recycled bottles? My kids are still in awe when I told them that amazing fact.

This backpack is perfect. It has so many pockets and features my son loves it! The part that sits up against your back is padded for comfort, it has adjustable waist straps and padded shoulder straps. Another great feature now that kids are bringing home laptops from school or taking them to school is a middle compartment with Velcro closure that will keep it protected.

We highly recommend shopping at The Ultimate Green Store.
