Back To Sharing with Timbuk2



Summer is almost over and it’s time for Back to Sharing. For the entire month of August, earn up to 300 bonus credits per week for posting back to school items based on weekly themes.

Every week this month, we’re launching a mini-drive for school-themed stuff that need new homes, and for every item you post for Back to Sharing, you’ll get 100 bonus credits. You can post up to 3 items a week, with a maximum of 300 potential credits earned per week. Imagine all the things you can yerdle with those added points.

Here’s how it works:

1. Post items that relate to our weekly theme

2. Include the hashtag for that weeks' mini-drive

3. The following week, you’ll receive* 100 bonus credits (up to 300 credits, 3-item limit)

4. Repeat! :)

Here’s a sneak peek of the themes to come, so start cleaning out your closets and garage:

August 4 - 10: #backtopacks, featuring Timbuk2 August 11 - 17: #backtothreads, featuring Loomstate August 18 - 24: #backtogear, featuring Comet Skateboards August 25 - 31: #backtogadgets, featuring Native Union

And now, to kick off Back to Sharing, here’s the first mini-drive: #backtopacks.

WEEK 1: #backtopacks, August 4-10, ending 11:59 PDT


We are thrilled to feature items from Timbuk2, the San Francisco maker of messenger bags, backpacks & accessories, made of sustainable, eco-friendly materials designed to last a lifetime. Timbuk2 is a passionate brand that is dedicated to extending the life of their products. They started the Life Cycle program to reduce, repair, reuse, recycle, & reimagine. So far the program has reused 7,000 bags, repaired 700 (hiring a full-time tailor in San Francisco) and has recycled almost 5,000 bags!

Bonus: If you happen to have a Timbuk2 messenger bag and send it Back to Sharing with yerdle this week, you’ll receive 100 extra credits and a discount code for 20% off of a future Timbuk2 purchase. Be sure to include the #backtopacks tag.
