What convinced Isi completely from the BAGSOLATE? Cork!
Isi actually hasn't been on the path to more sustainability for very long, but since she set this goal, she's been putting a lot of effort into it. Every week she wants to learn a new concept and try to integrate it somehow into her everyday life. She feels that a step-by-step approach is better than not trying at all, and besides, throwing everything over at once is also kind of utopian.
Last week, she found out about cork. Sure, the material looks super cool, but it's actually also one of the most sustainable raw materials in the world. A full 100% of the bark of the cork oak tree, which is harvested every 9 years from the age of 25, can be made into compressed cork or other cork products. In addition, it is very easy to make a new cork product from an old one, so cork is also 100% recyclable. Last but not least, cork forests bind more than 14 million tons of CO2 and by harvesting the bark, space is created for renewed CO2 binding. That's how Isa came up with BAGSOLATE, because she thinks it's great that one of its most important components is cork.
Hiking steeply uphill for 5 hours? A relaxed Sunday for Alex.
Alex is a huge fan of all outdoor activities, be it climbing, hiking, camping, he is up for anything. How could it be any different when you have the Alps right on your doorstep? A perfect Sunday? Have breakfast in the morning, then prepare a packed lunch and hot tea and be on the summit by 1:30pm at the latest. Then eat it all and it's back down again.
But when he gets back to the valley, he has to go straight on to his work as a private climbing coach. For that he needs his complete climbing equipment and of course even more food and drinks. But another backpack for everything? That would be somehow much too much, and is especially not necessary with our spacious BAGSOLATE.
