We are Going Green

We have a real concern about the impact that we are having on the World around us and what we can do to decrease our, and in turn, your impact on the environment.

How we are doing this:

Laminated Bag Range:

Lamination increase the usage and life span of a bag as they can be used over and over again. As all councils have different recycling plants, what can or can’t be recycled is dependent on your location at the moment. All of our bags will decompose eventually.

Kraft Bag Range:

Our full colour block bottom and internal tape handle Kraft bags are virtually carbon neutral and all waste products are incinerated at high temperatures leaving water as the only by-product. The factory is also equipped with an underground waste tank that will catch spillage should any occur.

Certain finishes on our paper bags can have an effect on the recyclability of the bag. Polypropylene handles are not recyclable but they are re-useable. We suggest using cotton rope handles for our rope handled kraft bags as the cotton handles are a natural product and therefore more eco-friendly.

We can also offer un-laminated offset paper for your bags – these bags are made completely from sustainably sourced paper. Offset paper can be embossed and debossed, can accept foiling and UV spot varnish as well as full colour 100% printing.
