Wish you could do more shopping on two wheels but don’t have the bicycle basket or gear to carry the bags? Meet the PaperJohn, a paper bag design that can be worn as a backpack. Designed by a Hamburg-based startup, the bag is made from 100% recycled paper with reinforced handles, making it sturdy enough to tout around town and easy to wear for shopping trips by bike. The PaperJohn wasn’t created for individual sale; rather, the team is currently working on making the paper backpack available as an alternative bag option at popular supermarkets.
