"It’s in tough times like these that we consider it so important to keep our branded bags"
DK, Lincoln

"I was amazed by the ease of ordering my rope handle bags – a great deal also!"
SA, Bedford

Aware of our environment responsibility, we offer you a wide range of eco friendly products whilst actively supporting and promoting recycling and the re-use of polythene carrier and paper bags to help you reduce your carbon footprint.

Supportive of relevant environmental regulations and legislation, we always promote awareness supported by factual, unbiased reports and substantiated statements and up to date information and research.

Our paper products are recyclable and degradable and raw materials for paper products are sourced from managed sustainable forests.

Water based inks are used where possible in printing and modern energy efficient machinery is employed in manufacture and conversion.

Manufacturing is carried out in modern, clean factories, where industry standards are certified and maintained to a high level.

Our ‘BAG FOR LIFE’ products you can select that will not only enhance your business profile, but also show your customers that you are ‘doing your bit’ for the environment.

Degradable options for carrier bags are very much now requested by our customers as standard feature in our range of polythene carriers from the low priced thin ‘vest’ style to the more substantial and heavy duty polythene carrier with punched out aperture or flexi loop handles.
