How is backpack volume measured?
The volume of each backpack is measured using a standardised method: we fill the main compartment as well as each pocket with little balls. Then we empty these balls into a graduated container, which gives the equivalent volume in litres.
The product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire lifespan, using various indicators. An overall score is assigned from A to E to help easily identify the most eco-friendly products by comparing products of the same type (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks etc). Decathlon is committed to displaying environmental information about its products. For more information: http://developpement-durable.decathlon.com/
