CAUSEGEAR Waxed Canvas Roll Pack

There are an estimated 40 million people around the world experiencing modern slavery today. About 70 percent of which are women and girls, including 99 percent of those in the commercial sex industry and 84 percent of victims of forced marriages. What if through the simple purchase of a backpack or bag you could help free a woman from social injustice? CAUSEGEAR was founded with such a vision — to see one million people “made free” through self-sustaining jobs. Crafters of ethically produced fashion, CAUSEGEAR believes that consumers can help create sustainable social reform by empowering women in the world’s most impoverished places. Their collection of handcrafted packs, bags, and accessories help free people from human trafficking, severe poverty, and slavery. CAUSEGEAR’s most popular bag, the Waxed Roll Pack, brings style and functionality to your everyday adventures. Its roll down closure allows you to adjust the carrying capacity, while protecting your valuables from the elements. The leather strap keeps your pack securely rolled in place, and the large front pocket is perfectly placed for quick access to keys, phone, or wallet. Every CAUSEGEAR item is made in a factory that meets or exceeds the World Fair Trade Organizations (WFTO) standards. And the sell of each pack goes toward a day of freedom for your crafter from slavery and poverty through a self-sustaining job.
