Targus’ Cyprus Hero Backpack Is Made from 26 Recycled Water Bottles

Sustainably-made products are incredibly popular due to the recent eco-friendly paradigm shift that both the general population and major companies are embracing. While this change is undoubtedly better for the planet, another unforeseen benefit from this trend is that companies are really flexing their creative muscles in order to provide worthwhile offerings to their customers while also ensuring the quality of their products doesn’t falter. One really cool example of creativity-gone-right is the 15.6” Cyprus Hero Backpack with EcoSmart from Targus.

Toeing the line between ingenuity, sustainability, and bonafide practicality, the Cyprus Hero Backpack with EcoSmart features an elegant and streamlined silhouette and a build that’s made of 26 recycled water bottles. It features a construction made from materials like recycled PET polyester and recycled water bottles. The fibers for these backpacks are made through a unique process where the recycled plastic gets shredded and re-polymerized into plastic chips before being heated and spun into usable yarn. From a design perspective, the Cyprus Hero Backpacks prioritize ergonomic comfort and practical protection for your everyday items while also offering plenty of storage. It is made to fit laptops that are 15.6″ and features a dedicated padded compartment to cradle your computer. It also offers a large main compartment for bulkier items, a secondary compartment with a workstation, and a quick-stash front pocket to allow for speedy packing and unpacking of smaller items. Even better, it has a pass-through trolley strap for easy transport on luggage, allowing you to strap it to roller bags if the need arises.

Moreover, the Cyprus Hero Backpack sports ergonomic shoulder straps that have airflow padding to maximize air circulation between the bag and your back, making it a comfortable commuter backpack. The Cyprus Hero Backpack comes in black and light gray and retails for $93.
