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.

  Product Details
  • 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

  FAQ
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?

To stop littering the oceans has a multitude of positive effects on our planet. We protect marine life that for example gets caught in plastic waste or ingest plastic as supposed food, then cannot digest it and die on a “full stomach”. But we also protect ourselves - because we ingest microplastics from the oceans through the food chain.

Researchers also suspect that microplastics in the nutrient cycle of algae have negative effects on the climate. Because: Algae - more precisely phytoplankton - use sunlight, carbon dioxide (CO2) and water to produce organic material in the photosynthesis process. This is what they feed on. Researchers fear that microplastics as supposed food inhibits this process. That could have enormous effects on our climate, because what many do not know: The phytoplankton in the oceans use about as much carbon dioxide as the land plants on the continents. Hence, it plays an important role in regulating our climate.

Our recycling approach not only helps to keep the oceans clean and this marine ecosystem intact. Recycling also helps to reduce greenhouse gases overall and thus protect our climate. Because: one ton of recycled plastic saves 2 tons of crude oil and up to 1.6 tons of CO2, which would be used in the production of new plastic.

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?

  Care Instructions

To ensure that you and your Fitz & Huxley experience as many adventures as possible together, you can increase the longevity even further with a little care. You can find all the tips here.

We are very proud to be world's first bag company with a fully certified and transparent supply chain for recycled ocean bound plastic.

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.

Helping people to help themselves:

The supply chain for recycled Ocean Bound Plastic we have set up with our partners is the first of its kind in India. There, the handicraft of bag making is still very traditional. We want to change that! Together with our partners, we are moving forward and initiating a development process in India.

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.
