Hunting for the perfect mini hemp backpack to carry all your essentials? When you choose a hemp pack, you’re making a great choice for the planet!
Hemp is gentle on the earth because it needs minimal water to thrive, and is hardy enough to be grown without chemical herbicides or pesticides. In terms of sustainable farming, hemp actually returns around 70% of the nutrients it takes from the soil, while needing only a small amount of land for cultivation.
It’s a highly sustainable, low-impact crop that can be turned into fabric with little environmental impact – and a growing number of eco-conscious consumers are turning to hemp for green clothing and accessories, including fashion-forward hemp mini backpacks.
Here are our top picks for a mini hemp backpack that look great, while helping you do your bit to save the planet.
