Recycled Paper

Paper can generally be recycled between four and seven times. After that the fibres become too short and weak and the quality degrades too much to use. Recycled paper can be more in cost than virgin paper; due to the processes involved to recycle and due to the high demand. Generally recycled paper is thought to be more environmentally friendly than virgin paper but there simply isn’t enough and this will likely intensify with an increased migration from plastics to paper based products.

We can offer recycled paper on most styles of bag but we ask you to specify at the time of enquiry. Some styles have higher minimum quantities. If you use recycled paper you can include this logo and text in your design or we can put this information on the base of the bag for you, on request. Please ask your sales contact to send you the details and relevant logo.

Example:

“I’m made from 100% recycled paper. Reuse me and recycle me”

Recycling

The majority of papers can be recycled in your weekly recycle bin collection and commercially, provided they are not laminated. It is estimated that between 60-80% of all paper is recycled; making it one of the ‘eco’ success stories. You can include this logo and text in your design or we can put this information on the base of the bag for you, on request. Please ask your sales contact to send you the details and relevant logo.
