Loopy is the first school bag that has also been developed with environmental and social sustainability in mind. Taking advantage of the pedagogical moment of the elementary school age, Loopy teaches children to playfully intervene in the structure of their own backpack. This could provide an opportunity for young people to gain a deeper understanding of the composition of products at an early age. In terms of environmental sustainability, Loopy's modular design makes it highly customizable and repairable. Bags can thus be adapted and change with the growing child. In this way, an emotional bond in relation to the product is particularly strengthened, which additionally increases the product's longevity. Since the individual elements are predominantly mono-material, and do not consist of inseparable composites, they can also be recycled later without any problems.
