This bag is made of recycled ocean bound plastic!

Why ocean plastic? Garbage left or disposed on beaches and riverbanks ends up in the ocean eventually, adding up to the already huge plastic pollution in our seas. Once the plastic is in the ocean it is quite hard and expensive to recover it. Our approach is to collect the plastic waste before it can get into the oceans, recycle it and turn it into new bags. Thereby we protect the oceans and its marine life as well as us humans and our climate.

Learn here more how the protection of our oceans has a multitude of positive effects on our planet.

  Detalles del producto
  • Roomster made from recycled ocean bound plastic! The OCEAN roll-top adapts to your storage space requirements: in addition to your belongings for university or work, you can also easily store your sports gear, for example. With the easily expandable volume, you can also store your luggage for a 3-5 day trip. A thick DIN-A4 folder will of course also fit.
  • The outer material is made from 100% recycled ocean bound plastic and has a coarse, grainy structure that hardly feels like polyester but more like a thick canvas tissue. This fabric is water-repellent and protects against wind and weather. The splash-proof zippers keep the contents of the outer pockets dry. Despite its coarse structure, the upper material is soil-resisting and is easy to clean.
  • If you ever need to carry a particularly large number of items, the OCEAN roll-top provides you with the flexibility you need: using the splash-proof zipper you don’t have to roll up the OCEAN roll-top to store your things safely. You therefore have storage space of up to 30 litres, an interior height of up to 55 cm and an interior diagonal of up to 66 cm (this means, e.g., that an elongated object of more than half a meter in length fits into your OCEAN roll-top)
  • With the suitcase strap on the back of the backpack, you can attach your OCEAN roll-top firmly and securely to a trolley suitcase - so every trip becomes like a walk in the park.
  • The padded shoulder straps ensure a high level of comfort without looking too bulky.
  • Spacious front pocket with splash-proof zipper.
  • On the back of the backpack there is a anti-theft outside pocket for your most important items. Here you keep them here safely but easily accessible.
  • The open outer pocket stows your drinking bottle or umbrella within easy reach (for bottles with a diameter of up to 8 cm).
  • Buckles and roll-top fasteners are made of anthracite-colored metal.
  • The OCEAN roll-top comes with a detachable padded laptop sleeve for notebooks up to 15.6" in size or 16‘‘ MacBook Pro (version 2021). Inner dimensions of the sleeve: 39 x 28 x 3cm. The laptop sleeve can be attached to the inside of the OCEAN roll-top with a velcro mechanism.
  • Three spacious zipper pockets in the interior.
  • Black inner fabric made from 100% recycled ocean plastic.
  • Your backpack is machine washable at 30°.
  • For the production of the OCEAN roll-top, 2.7kg of ocean bound plastic was recovered and recycled.
  • Weight: 930g

  Preguntas frecuentes
Does the recycled material make my backpack less durable than if it had been made with new plastic?

Basically, the quality of the material in the manufacture of backpacks from recycled ocean bound plastic is a challenge. Due to environmental influences such as solar radiation or salty sea water, the material loses its quality, can become brittle and then only be recycled in a correspondingly inferior quality. This often occurs with stiff fabrics. Unlike other backpack brands, we use a flexible but abrasion-resistant fabric that has been developed for us, which does not break and is therefore very durable.

Why do you focus on the oceans? What about other environmental issues?

Dejar de ensuciar los océanos tiene multitud de efectos positivos para nuestro planeta. Protegemos la vida marina que, por ejemplo, queda atrapada en los residuos de plástico o ingiere plástico como supuesto alimento, pero no puede digerirlo y muere con el "estómago lleno". Pero también nos protegemos a nosotros mismos, porque ingerimos microplásticos de los océanos a través de la cadena alimentaria.

Los investigadores también sospechan que los microplásticos en el ciclo de nutrientes de las algas tienen efectos negativos en el clima. Porque: Las algas -más concretamente el fitoplancton- utilizan la luz solar, el dióxido de carbono (CO2) y el agua para producir materia orgánica en el proceso de fotosíntesis. De esto se alimentan. Los investigadores temen que los microplásticos como supuesto alimento inhiban este proceso. Esto podría tener enormes efectos en nuestro clima, porque lo que muchos no saben: El fitoplancton de los océanos utiliza tanto dióxido de carbono como las plantas terrestres de los continentes. Por lo tanto, desempeña un papel importante en la regulación de nuestro clima.

Nuestro enfoque de reciclaje no sólo ayuda a mantener los océanos limpios y este ecosistema marino intacto. El reciclaje también ayuda a reducir los gases de efecto invernadero en general y, por tanto, a proteger nuestro clima. Porque: una tonelada de plástico reciclado ahorra 2 toneladas de petróleo crudo y hasta 1,6 toneladas de CO2, que se utilizarían en la producción de plástico nuevo.

Our high quality standards in materials and craftsmanship ensure that our backpacks and bags have a long life ahead of them. This saves resources and the environment. "Don't buy more, buy better" has been our philosophy since inception.

We also save CO2 through our regional supply chain: all steps from plastic waste collection to recycling, yarn production, weaving to the final bag production take place regionally in India.

In addition, we promote an understanding of garbage as a valuable source of raw materials among the Indian population. The fact that we pay people to collect rubbish leads to a rethink which in turn counteracts the indifferent disposal of rubbish in the environment. Do you want to learn more?

  Cuidado de los productos

Para que tú y tu Fitz & Huxley tengáis tantas aventuras juntos como sea posible, un poco de cuidado puede contribuir a aumentar su longevidad. Aquí encontrarás todos los consejos.

Estamos muy orgullosos de ser la primera empresa de bolsas del mundo con una cadena de suministro totalmente certificada y transparente de plástico reciclado procedente del océano.

Recycling plastic that is bound to pollute our oceans has a multitude of positive effects on our planet. Here are the four major ones:

Protecting our planet:

Protecting the oceans means protecting the planet. Plastic or microplastics in our oceans have a variety of negative effects on marine animals and us humans. But especially on the marine ecosystem and thus global warming.

Garbage as a valuable raw material:

In our profit-oriented world, producing “new” is often cheaper than recycling or repairing. Companies often do not have to carry cost for adverse effects on our environment. We want to lead the way and show that cost-effective recycling is possible.

Certification and verifiability:

Our promise to you and our planet is certified and controlled. We are proud to be the world‘s first backpack brand with a fully certified supply chain, controlled by an independent organization.

Collecting plastic generates regular income:

In our bags there is not only an ecological but also a social core: collecting plastic for the OCEAN line enables the poorest of the poor to earn a living while cleaning the environment from plastic waste. Since they often cannot read and write, they otherwise have little prospect of a regular income. The OCEAN line addresses three urgent problems at once: 1. Poverty and hunger, 2. Environmental pollution from plastic and 3. Increasing the recycling rate of raw materials instead of new production. Become a part of this change too!

We need to act now!

8 million tonnes of plastic enter our oceans every year. This plastic affects us all: its in our water, our animals and in us. Something has to be done! Prevention and cleaning is the key to it as well as building up supply chains that allows to recycle plastic in an economical as well as sustainable manner and values plastic trash as the valuable source of resources as it is.

Collecting plastic waste: earn income and clean up the environment.

So far, plastic waste has had no value in India. We are changing that and contributing to a rethinking: because collecting plastic enables those who otherwise have little chances due to a lack of education or status to earn a regular income. At the same time, these people prevent the plastic waste from entering the sea and thus protect our oceans, which gives them a sense of purpose.
