January 29, 24



Targus worked with a reseller partner to equip one of Sydney’s top independent all-girl’s school with sustainable laptop sleeves for its students to ensure their school equipment accessories contributed positively towards their corporate responsibility and sustainability objectives.

The Targus team worked closely with the reseller and school to ensure the on-time delivery of more than two hundred sustainable laptop sleeves to accompany their devices for its students, mitigating original supply issues with the initial order due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Through exceptional consultative selling, communications, and teamwork, Targus was able to provide the school with a sustainable and alternative laptop sleeve to meet its corporate social responsibility and sustainability goals, following significant supply issues with their initial option.

The Customer: A Top Sydney Independent School

The client is one of Sydney’s prestigious independent all-girls’ schools located in the lower North Shore, with more than 150 staff members serving more than 1,600 Year 7-12 high school students. It is ranked among the top 100 school within New South Wales, providing quality educational experiences where all students succeed.

The Project: Equipping All Students With Sustainable And Protective Laptop Sleeves

The client school highly value its contributions to corporate social responsibility and sustainability, even having their equipment and accessory purchases align with these goals. Previously, the client school purchased their laptop sleeves from another supplier from neighbouring islands with the aim of helping positively affect the economy of its local communities.

However, the global pandemic has created unprecedented challenges for supply and distribution of goods worldwide, affecting the client school’s ability to purchase these initial products as previously conducted.

The school began conversations with Targus’ partner reseller about alternative laptop sleeves that still catered to their sustainability goals. The client school then selected the 11-12" Cypress Sleeve with EcoSmart® (Navy) (TBS64901GL) for its eco-friendly materials, high-quality construction, device protection, and functionality.

The Solution: Targus 11-12” Cypress Sleeve with EcoSmart® Technology

Through exceptional teamwork, communications, and relationship building, Targus successfully mitigated the issue by recommending an alternative laptop sleeve – the 11-12" Cypress Sleeve with EcoSmart® (Navy) (TBS64901GL) – offering a sustainable solution.

This sleeve is made from recyclable materials on the inside and out. Using fabric woven from 3 recycled water bottles, the 11-12” Cypress Sleeve with EcoSmart® is thoughtfully designed to protect laptops while also protecting the environment. Slim and lightweight, this sleeve protects laptops, while being wrapped up in sleek and sophisticated eco-conscious material.

The Outcome: Sustainable Laptop Sleeves for More Than 1,600 Students

Overcoming supply and distribution issues, Targus successfully delivered more than two hundred laptop sleeves to the client school. Pleased with the outcome, the client also included this initiative into their school portfolio and news, advising new parents that they have recycled over 1,000 PET bottles for their 2023 student intake.


This case study is just one example of how schools and companies can protect devices whilst also protecting the planet with sustainable and eco-conscious products.
