Environmental and Product Information
The following information is provided to help you understand the purpose behind the use of environmentally preferable materials in our eco products and to outline some of the benefits of their use.
Eco Bags - Recycled Paper, Calico, Bamboo
Recycled paper bags, calico, and bamboo cloth bags are viable alternatives to the dreaded plastic bag. More than 500 billion plastic bags are used around the world each year, mostly once only, and then discarded in landfill or litter.
The paper bags in our range with side gussets only are made in Australia from 100% post-consumer recycled paper, the flat bottomed Kraft Bags from Malayasia are made from 100% recycled Kraft paper, while the calico bags from China are longer-life products, designed for maximum reuse, thereby saving the consumption of hundreds of plastic bags.
The Bamboo Bags from China are made from sustainable, renewable Bamboo fibre. Plantation grown, pesticide and fertilizer free, and biodegradable. The bamboo is not sourced from a food source plantation.
Note that we don't supply non-woven bags as these are actually made from non-recycled plastic (polypropylene).
