GreenSmart: Mandrill Backpack Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to the lucky winner - NativeHalo #30!

I am really enjoying this Mandrill backpack from GreenSmart. It's been holding up very nicely and I use it five days a week for class. This backpack features a separate access laptop zippered pocket that fits up to 15.6" laptop. The airmesh padded back and shoulder straps provide superior comfort. The interior compartment is generous and holds all of my books with ample room.
And the exterior cording works well for jackets.

Height: 19"

Width: 13.5"

Depth: 9"

Weight: 1.7 lbs

Volume: 1830 cu. In.

Interior Laptop Dimension: 18.5"x12.5"x2"

Colors: Black, Ocean Blue, Olive

I am very pleased with the quality of this backpack. I know I will be using it for years to come.

And now for the really cool part...

All fabrics used for the GreenSmart Bottles 2 Bags are derived from 100% recycled plastic bottles. The fabric in this product, both the exterior and interior, are derived from 100% post consumer recycled plastic bottles. This process is the end point for the process which begins with the collection of bottles, which become ground up, washed to become fiber, spun into yarn and woven into our fabrics. The overall process also uses less energy than making polyester out of virgin chemicals.

One lucky reader will win a Mandrill Backpack from GreenSmart!
