We are not going to teach anything new, but we also couldn’t let this day (International Day Without Plastic Bags) pass.
ABOUT 1 MILLION LIGHT PLASTIC BAGS ARE USED IN THE WORLD, per minute.
IN EUROPE CIRCULATES 100,000 MILLION BAGS each year.
PORTUGAL IS ONE OF THE COUNTRIES IN EUROPE THAT USES MORE BAGS (1 time and for only 25 minutes).
Production, transport and treatment of those high quantities of bags in circulation, are responsible for the CONSUMPTION OF MANY RESOURCES, including water and oil.
In the garbage they mix with the remaining residues and end up in landfills or in the environment, where they STAY FOR MORE THAN 300 YEARS.
They are the 2nd WASTE FOUND ON THE SURFACE OF THE SEA.
On land and at sea they are ingested and CHOKE ANIMALS, reducing biodiversity and entering the food chain. *
For all this and more, we DO NOT LIKE PLASTIC BAGS! We like paper bags, which we reuse and reuse until they tear apart. Only then do we free them for recycling.
We treat each paper bag with the respect it deserves, due to the knowledge that comes from the profession’s defect: we design and produce bags with cardboards that come from sustainable forests and are printed with ecological inks.
