Back to School with Sakroots

Every year the same scenario plays out in my life. I run an errand at Target, think about how much I love summer and have just gotten into the swing of it, and then stop dead in my tracks when I see school supplies gracing the aisles the day after 4th of July. Whether you like it or not, it is back to school season, my friends.

With a career in higher education, my life revolves around the academic school year. There are distinct breaks and carved out busy times. I love the excitement that buzzes when back to school season is around the corner. From kindergartners to grad school students, there is much to be excited about. 

Fresh starts always call for a few new pieces, a backpack being one of them. Growing up, choosing out a new backpack for the beginning of the school year was a big deal. Even as an adult I get giddy over the bags, purses and backpacks that are on the market. This year I opted for a Sakroots backpack. I was immediately drawn towards their mission of supporting passionate students pursuing art, music and nature. College students have so much talent and unidentified creativity. I love that there are organizations tapping into this and encouraging the pursuit of dreams in young people. 

Not only am I impressed with Sakroots mission and vision, but the actual quality of their products. My backpack can hold everything I need to be out for a day including my laptop, planner, lunch, phone, keys and wallet. The different sized compartments and pockets make it convenient to keep all my belongings. In college I quickly learned how important it is to take everything with whether you think you need it or not. This backpack is perfect for grabbing everything and going plus it is the best addition to any back to school wardrobe.
