The outside of the One Nine 5's Eco Essential pouch is made from a durable, vegan leather. The durable material is Polyurethane (PU leather); while this is a form of plastic the brand explains in their frequently asked questions (FAQ) that they felt this material was the most durable and long lasting option.

What is The UK Return-to-Recycle Scheme?

One Nine 5 offer a free UK return to recycle scheme in partnership with TerraCycle. One Nine 5 says this helps to "ensure that all materials from the items you return are either reused or recycled." The brand explains that they only offer pre-paid shipping to those based in the UK. However anyone outside the UK who wants to return a product for recycling can cover the shipping costs. One Nine 5 say that UK and international users of their return to recycle scheme will be provided with a 25% off discount code for your next purchase.

How To Organise The Eco-Conscious 13" Laptop Sleeve

  • The Eco-Conscious 13" Laptop Sleeve features a document divider and a card holder to carry a business card or credit debit card.

• Sleeve - Space to put your laptop of choice or iPad.

• Internal Divider - Space to put sheets of paper or a small notebook of A5/A6 size. Make sure the paper fits with ample space to avoid it getting caught in the zip.

• Card holder - Carry a business card, credit/debit card or a card with your name on it to tell others this belongs to you.

Primo Natura's Thoughts

I have the laptop sleeve in black however, the brand offers grey, pink and blue options. I use the sleeve to keep my laptop safe when I am commuting between home and work, as well as carry the occasional small amount of paperwork. While my rucksacks offer a padded protective area for a laptop or iPad I appreciate the additional padding this sleeve offers, which is sought after since one of my rucksacks fits a 16" laptop, and my current one is 13".

Despite having used the laptop sleeve for over a year, the outer material is easy to clean with a none abrasive method as the company recommends. This will help to retain the premium feel. The zip opens and closes with ease and has a helpful circle on the pull tab allowing you to wrap a finger around it. Unlike most laptop sleeves which open from the top, the One Nine 5 sleeve opens along the top and down the side. This feature allows easier access to grab your device of choice and slide paperwork in or see what paperwork is inside. Inside the sleeve there is a card holder with an embedded message. Personally my job does not involve carrying business cards however, you could include contact details incase the sleeve was lost/stolen.
