I went to look for backpacks in the mall today and came across one made by Briggs & Riley that I like but it had a warning label on it about the materials saying that it shouldn't be chewed and that it contains chemicals known to cause cancer. The person at the store said that this is typical for all backpacks. Can anyone vouch for this? Did your backpack come with such a warning. That got me thinking of whether there exists something like a "green" backpack...one made with environmental and health consciousness. Perhaps one that uses natural, non-toxic, and biodegradable and/or recyclable materials. Let me know if you have any ideas here. My local Apple store had only one backpack -- the one by Hurley -- and I didn't much care for that, but I look at all the labels and didn't find the warning label that the Briggs & Riley had. Thanks.
