2012 has been an incredible year of Bonfire Sessions: We’ve seen the Sessions grow from three events in 2011 to five this year. We started off last March in Austin, TX during SXSW, followed by our daytime pool party at Coachella in April. From there we paid a vist to our friends up North with our Toronto Bonfire Sessions during NXNE in June and then brought it home to the birthplace of JanSport and the Bonfire Sessions in Seattle just a few [...] Read More >



Have you been to a major music or sporting festival recently? If you have you’ve surely spotted the TRASHed Recycling store set up in the vendor area.

The more recyclables you turn in, the more “currency” you have to spend. Pretty cool huh? We thought so too, so we made sure to send the folks behind  TRASHed some JanSport gear to stock in [...] Read More >
