Sagano boasts Campus, Commuter and Travel backpacks as well as two slipcases.
Designed for sustainability, simplicity and style.
London, UK – 21st September, 2022 – Targus®, a leading brand of laptop bags and mobile computing accessories, announced today it has introduced a new line of contemporary bags and backpacks to its EcoSmart® family, made from GRS-certified recycled plastic. The new Sagano™ EcoSmart® Collection features Campus, Commuter and Travel backpacks, as well as two slipcases, designed for eco-conscious consumers to carry and protect their tech with considered storage and organisation for every day essentials.
“70% of consumers are looking to big brands and businesses to provide sustainable solutions to everyday needs,” says Dave Crew, EMEA Commercial Director, Targus. “Our latest EcoSmart® collection, Sagano, meets that demand head-on. A bag for life with a Lifetime Warranty, Sagano is both eco- and budget-friendly.”
The brand is keen to drive sustainability from the heart of its business. In partnership with Treekly, Targus staff are turning their footsteps into trees this September with a challenge to walk 5,000 steps each day in exchange for 1 tree planted. The Targus community have recorded 14.6 million steps so far and captured 270 tonnes of CO2. The CO2 emissions captured are equivalent to driving more than 500,000 miles or eating 84,000 cheeseburgers. This initiative will ensure at least 5,400 new mangrove trees will be planted.
“As a business, Targus is taking active steps to be ever more sustainable. This global mission is important to us all,” continues Dave Crew. “The Treekly initiative encourages our people to lead a sustainable and active lifestyle, and the team is enjoying the healthy competition for who can plant the most trees.”
Created to fit 15”-16” laptops, the functional and eco-friendly backpacks in the Sagano EcoSmart collection are made using the equivalent of up to nine recycled water bottles. The Sagano EcoSmart Campus Backpack and Sagano EcoSmart Commuter Backpack feature a padded laptop compartment and a spacious, zippered front pocket for easy access. A handy workstation keeps pens, an ID, and keys organized while the outside has two convenient side pockets for reusable water bottles. The Commuter Backpack also includes a zippered back stash pocket to keep your phone or wallet secure and a hidden pocket with a built-in rain cover in case the cloud roll in. The Sagano EcoSmart Travel Backpack offers multiple pockets and a contemporary profile, and is equipped with safety features like the SafePort® Sling Protection System to secure a laptop from the inside, while the RFID-blocking pocket helps keep personal information safe from the outside. Whether you’re headed to the office, class, airport or simply packing up your gear for the nearest coffee shop, these bags are consciously designed to protect your essentials while protecting the environment.
Made from the equivalent of 6 recycled water bottles, the 14” and 16” Sagano™ EcoSmart® Slipcases are functional and eco-friendly. They feature a padded main compartment that shields your laptop from everyday bumps and scratches. Slimmer than a briefcase and roomier than a sleeve, its large front pocket keeps accessories handy while its removable shoulder strap and soft grip handles make for an ultra-easy carry.
