Responsible manufacturing: we have been working for years with a Japanese partner in Vietnam, specializing in technical products (safety harnesses, paragliding wings and backpacks). They are ISO 9001 certified (quality) and also have WRAP (World Responsible Accredited Production) certification. This audit, carried out every year, is the largest environmental, professional and ethical certification program in the world.
“Less” polluting transport: The factory is located 80km from the seaport of Ho Chi Minh in southern Vietnam. We optimize the loadings in the containers as much as possible. The goods are then transported by boat to Fos-sur-Mer in the south of France. The last km are done by truck to our warehouse in Annecy. Sometimes we bring in a few boxes by air, but this is exceptional.
Storage and preparation of orders with a logistician in Annecy. Plastic tape replaced by kraft tape. Cushioning in cardboard or recycled plastic. We are thinking about setting up reusable envelopes to send your order. But you will have to play the game and remember to return the cover (prepaid).
Sending your carbon neutral order: by Colissimo or DPD predict.
Repair and second-hand sale: we work with repair centers in France and Soon Europe. All returns (that are not repaired and sent back to you) through customer service are repaired and then sold as second hands (when there are any!).
Recyclable: recycled nylon can be recycled over and over (and over) again. But if at some point your MeroMero bag is no longer usable (or reparable) don't throw it away, we will recycle it. Contact us and we'll explain what to do.

Highly recommend the product, it looks very smart, fit my e-bike perfectly, feels very comfortable when used as a backpack. Anyone torn between the North Face products or Patagonia bags as their backpack, do not hesitate to purchase this product. Price is similar, however this backpack is more practical, durable and unique.
i am already planning to get one of those school backpacks for my daughter in September. She is a young cyclist, and the idea of having a reflective items on the backpack, especially during the winter is a win for me.
BTW communication with the seller was great.
