In celebration of World Environment Day on 5 June, Lenovo today launched a limited edition backpack conceived, designed and made with sustainability at its core. Containing over 83 percent of recycled materials, and built with recycled polyester (equivalent to 34 plastic water bottles), this backpack is also GRS-certified, ensuring that the recycled materials used are responsibly sourced and processed with minimal harm done to the environment.

The Eco Pro Backpack joins a host of other Lenovo accessories, including wireless keyboards, workstations docks and travel hubs that are sustainable and produced with recyclable materials. The Eco Pro Backpack is now available in Malaysia, Australia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Korea, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam.

Today, Lenovo uses closed loop post-consumer recycled content in 66 products and has used more than 9.5 million kg of CL-PCR as part of its overall use of almost 110 million kg (gross) of PCC since 2005 – signifying continuous growth in the efforts towards the use of sustainable materials.
