Colorado-based Backpack Company incorporates charity in a business model.
Are you looking for a convenient way to give back as you travel the world? A Colorado-based backpack company has incorporated an element of charity in their backpacks to allow backpackers to contribute to charity. Adventurist Backpack Company- a local backpack company in Colorado, is making backpacks that provide a fantastic traveling experience and at the same time allowing you to make an impact in society. Co-founded by Kelly Belknap and Matilda Sandstrom, The Company is among the few backpack startups that have incorporated charity in their business model.
According to the co-founders, the inspiration for this noble business model comes from their travel experience around the world, whereby they would pack meals into their backpacks and give them to those in need. “Each morning, we would pack meals into our bags and give them to anyone that was in need,” says Belknap, a co-founder of the Company. These acts of kindness to those in need inspired Belknap and Sandstrom to come up with a way to introduce a charitable element to their business. Now, this Colorado-based company allows you to make an impact as you explore the world.
When you purchase any of their backpacks, the company donates 25 meals. The company targets to donate 250, 000 meals by the end of this year.
According to Belknap, the company is dedicated to making a great product while making a greater impact in the community.
“Every company has a responsibility to promote social welfare and conserve the environment,” Belknap said.” Entrepreneurs should embrace a charitable cause and help to solve social problems.”
The Start-up provides a versatile product for anyone who needs a backpack and wants to give back to the community.
