The Ergobag brand belongs to FOND OF, a young German company, born in 2016 with the idea of creating a school backpack inspired by the models of trekking backpacks and in particular by their ergonomic characteristics. This is how Ergobag has created the first finally ergonomic school backpack, which lightens the child's back and allows them to maintain a correct position by distributing the weight evenly. The ergonomics and functionality of the backpacks are approved by IGR, a German national association of which physiotherapists, physical education teachers, doctors and organizations are members, all interested in the topic of back health. The tests are based on selected standards (DIN 33419 and EN ISO 15537) and guidelines for ergonomics.
The shape is also optimized for cycling to school and for all the stunts of children on the go! In addition, all ergobag school backpacks are equipped with large surfaces in reflective materials that ensure visibility even at night.
On the other hand, Ergobag has always paid attention to the environment with the desire to give our children a positive future. The backpacks are in fact made of recycled PET, in this way waste is reused and natural resources are safeguarded. The fabrics and materials are also free of toxic plasticizers (phthalates) or PAHs (Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons).
Also being a member of the Fair Wear Foundation, Ergobag maintains a close and personal relationship with its manufacturers and partners. Annual checks and inspections are carried out by member companies to monitor safety and working conditions and the minimum wage is guaranteed to all workers.
