Envirosax introduced their bags to discourage people from taking single use carrier bags from supermarkets and shops. Plastic carrier bags clog drains and cause flooding when they are thrown out. They pollute rivers and streams, killing animals and destroying plantlife. They take years to photo-degrade and have a very short life span. Envirosax provide a compelling alternative to the plastic bags which are doing so much damage to our planet.
The bags are made from polyester which may not seem very environmentally friendly initially but there are many reasons why it has been chosen for the bags. Firstly it is extremely lightweight and allows the bag to be rolled up into a very compact package. This encourages people to carry the bags with them and increases re-use. It is also highly durable and will not fade with wear. Finally using polyester means the bags are relatively inexpensive - encouraging more and more people to buy and use them. Will take approximately 2 standard carrier bags of shopping.
Envirosax do what they can to make the production as environmentally friendly as possible. The inks and dyes used in the printing of the bags are eco-friendly and no carcinogenic amides are used. The backing paper used in the 'sublimation' printing process is recycled and made into cardboard boxes for the transportation of the bags. These boxes are further recycled for sending the bags out to customers and retailers.
