little eco packs {Beatrix New York} + giveaway

My daughter is completely into preschool right now. Every day she wakes up and says “So what are we doing at school today, Mom?” I love that she loves to learn. It was a pretty big adjustment changing schools, making new friends and having more responsibilities, but she’s thriving on them. First day of 4-year old Preschool and she insisted on using her Beatrix New York little love eco pack. The photo below was taken on her very first day of Preschool. Please understand that she picked out her entire outfit from barrettes all the way down to her shoes.

We adore all of Beatrix New York’s backpacks, but you need to know about the eco packs line. These backpacks are constructed with nylon that’s made completely from recycled plastic water bottles. The trim consists of naturally biodegradable canvas. Each pack that’s crafted removes four 16 oz. plastic bottles from the environment. Now if that’s not doing a truly beneficial thing for our environment, I don’t know what is. The same Beatrix New York design, durability and modern look that we love all while helping the earth in a wonderful way.

The little eco packs are sized for ages 2 – 5 and has an extremely roomy interior space. Inside you’ll find a small zippered pocket handy for all types of little trinkets your child picks up at school. This bag is the perfect size to carry her blanket, extra clothes, homework and show and tell items. Plus the pink and gray colors are truly adorable. My daughter adores the heart on the back. She insists on filling this backpack with all of her toys when we head up to the mountains for the weekends too. This is my daughter’s favorite school accessory!

Head over to Beatrix New York and check out their little eco packs. If your child is going to and from school or even daycare, this is a backpack that your child will love and that will also teach your child a valuable lesson about the importance of eco-friendly items.
