Reusability = Responsibility

The endurance test


Paper bags are stronger and more resilient than you think – with tests showing a standard paper bag can carry up to 11 kg and be reused several times over. With people looking for more sustainable shopping choices, how many times and ways will you use yours?

Sustainable packaging


When the lifecycle of a paper bag comes to an end, it's good to know that it is 100% recyclable.
A sustainable alternative to plastic, using a paper bag contributes to the positive environmental change in lowering the carbon emissions produced at landfill sites.

Better for the environment


What if a paper bag doesn’t end up in the recycle chain? It’s 100% biodegradable, taking 2-5 months to break down naturally. In being compostable, there’s no harm to the environment.

Reuse in action

The practical paper bag can be a part of our lifestyle in more ways than one. From functional benefits to a creative application, reusability is a core part of sustainable packaging.

Ready to get crafty? Here are some insights and inspiration on how to reuse your paper bag.
