How We're Making a Difference
In 1967, JanSport was founded to ignite the spirit of freedom for you to embrace life’s adventures. Our journey has just started, but we’re taking the steps necessary to ensure the future generations can experience and enjoy this brilliant blue planet we all call home.
Tracking Our Progress
For JanSport, this is both a journey and a destination. In the spirit of trust and transparency, we encourage our fellow adventurers to track our progress from where we are today to our goals for the future.
In 1967, JanSport was created to help adventurers experience and celebrate the outdoors. In the years since, that mission has expanded to protecting and preserving the outdoors for future generations to enjoy. Today, we’re taking a hard look at the carbon footprint and sustainability of everything we do. It’s a work in progress, but just this season we've used the equivalent of 13,000,000 bottles worth* of recycled plastic by using recycled polyester in eight of our top-selling packs.
When you look inside a JanSport backpack you see a story that started in 1967. Our journey has just begun, but we’re taking the steps necessary to ensure the future generations can experience and enjoy this brilliant blue planet we all call home.
