Plastic bags are in constant use all over the world and are one of the biggest polluters. One possible solution is PaperJohn, a biodegradable backpack made from recycled paper. This product allows shoppers to bicycle or walk to the store and carry items home on their back.

Made in Germany by OGATA UT, PaperJohn is constructed with high density paper and carries more groceries than the average paper bag. The dimensions are 320 x 170 x 450mm and features durable shoulder straps. The raw material comes from renewable wood and the company plans to manufacture the bags in other countries.
