Lands’ End Eco-Friendly Lunch Pack and Backpack

When you think Back-to-School, you gotta be thinking about the backpack, so of course we want to tell you all about one of our new favorites. When my tween daughter saw the “recycle” symbol on the backpack, she was really excited. “It’s recycled?” she asked. “That’s awesome!”

Yes, Lands’ End has created a brand-new line of backpacks and lunch packs that are made from 100% recycled fabric.

In addition to this earth-friendly construction, the Eco-friendly Backpack has everything that you’ve come to expect from Lands’ End: sturdy straps and good quality for a fair price. Backpacks and Lunch Sacks take a beating, and my daughter has been able to use her Lands’ End packs for more than one year.

Another thing I love about shopping at Lands’ End, is the variety of sizes that they offer. This Eco-friendly Backpack is marked for ages 10 and up. It’s a full-size backpack perfect for older elementary students through high school or college (It dwarfed my five-year-old. I just ordered him the ClassMate SmallHaul Backpack, specially designed for ages 5 – 8.). The colors are more muted too, which is more appealing to an older child or adult.

The Eco-friendly Lunch Pack is nice and roomy. It also comes with an insulated drink holder, so that you can send a bottle or a can and it will stay cool for hours.

The drink holder is removable, and can also attach it directly to the backpack if you prefer.

The lunch pack can also be attached to any Lands’ End backpack with the carabiner clip (leaving more room inside the backpack for books and binders, and keeping it smoosh free).

    You can’t beat Lands End or LL Bean – My daughter purchased a book bag a couple of years ago and it is still going stong – she loves it – we washed it in washing machine last week – and four days ago, she left for college carrying it with her (empty nest here I come). Any way, she is an eco-friendly kind of girl and when she hears about this – I am sure she will be checking it out when it comes time to buy a new one.

    I carried a Lands’ End backpack to high school 15 years ago and wore a lot of their clothes. Now that I have 2 sons, they love Lands’ End as well.

    my son really needs this. I am so happy he is past the age of cheap cartoon character backpacks and can nw get a good one like this that would last

  10. Tari Lawson says

    These would be perfect for my son for school. His backpack last year, ripped. I know Lands End has high quality items.

  11. McKim says

    If I won these I would actually keep them for myself. The backpack I use is a leftover Winnie the Pooh one and a grocery sack for my lunch. What a step up this would be!

  12. says

    I love the backpack and lunch pack. I had such a hard time finding a good quality backpack this year for my daughter’s little shoulders. She’s going to be carrying home heavy textbooks for the first time this year. I’d love to win one.

  13. Angel S. says

    Summer is almost gone – yikes!! What a treat to win a new backpack though. I love Land’s End stuff. Always great quality. Thanks!

  14. Kerrie Mayans says

    I love land’s end backpacks. My oldest daughter used hers from first grade thru 4th grade and it is still in OK shape, it just doesn’t hold the amount of books she needs for middle school so we had to purchase her a new on this year.

  15. Pamk says

    would love to win this since I have an eight grader and one starting college this year. Could use all the help i can get and this would be one thing I wouldnt have to buy.

  16. Sarah Lehan says

  18. Karen says

    We would love to win this! Lands End products are so durable and timeless. School starts here tomorrow and I’m hoping my older son’s backpack can hold out for a couple of weeks while I shop for a new one for him. This would solve the problem! Great looking products.

  19. Kimberly says

    These look like really high quality products and would really come in handy. Money is tight every where and it seems like everyone needs at least one of everything. :)

  20. teresa sardina says

    I love Land’s End. We have LE’s duffel bags.
    The Land’s End products are well made and worth the money. I would so enjoy the lunch pak.

    My husband is in need of a new lunch pack and my son needs a new backpack, so I’m excited about the chance to win both.

    Thank you so very very much

    Thank you so very very much


  24. Justine says

    Another awesome item from Land’s End! I particularly like the separate drink holder, I haven’t seen one of those before!

  25. Laura Benjamin says

    This backpack has to be the ultimate backpack. I admit I would use it for myself as I am a teacher and bought myself a brand backpack for the first time in years. Unfortunately my daughter fell in love with it so I am using the one which is held up with duct tape. I subscribe

  26. Geoff K says

    Would love to win the eco-friendly backpack for my nephew Nathan, who’s become a real environmentalist over the summer as he’s learned about science and climate change and is just starting 3rd grade — and I’d love to keep the lunch pack for myself! Thanks for the giveaway!

  27. Julie K says

    My son is very conscious of the environment. He requested a reusable drink bottle and sandwich holder for 5th grade this year. I think he would love these. Thanks!

  28. Vicki Andrew says

    Lands End products last forever, Love too get the lunch kit for my daughter to pack her lunch in, she is in college and to save money she takes a lunch to class

  29. Teresa P. says

    My daughter would appreciate a new backpack/lunch bag for her first year as a “full timer” (1st grade). Thank you.
