On the Path to Sustainability


In 1967, JanSport was created to help adventurers experience and celebrate the outdoors. In the years since, that mission has expanded to protecting and preserving the outdoors for future generations to enjoy. Today, we’re taking a hard look at the carbon footprint and sustainability of everything we do. It’s a work in progress, but just this season we've used the equivalent of 13,000,000 bottles worth* of recycled plastic by using recycled polyester in eight of our top-selling packs.
