Toronto has just become the largest North American city to ban plastic bags from grocery markets, but there’s an underlying controversy with respect to one of the alternatives. Sure, you can offer customers reusable bags, but will they remember to bring them? And if they don’t, then what will you offer – paper bags?
Paper grocery bags come with their own set of issues. While it may be desirable in many ways to discontinue using plastic, using paper means you’re also using trees.
What’s the solution?
ICEGREEN can offer you a perfect solution that’s consumer and eco-friendly, and it doesn’t use either plastic or paper.
Our Stone Paper bags are 100% tree free, and are made using an innovative mineral-based process that saves both trees and water. The manufacturing process conserves trees and water and produces less waste than traditional paper bag production. The result is a bag that’s both strong and durable, and makes a practical and consumer-friendly way to take items home.
About the Process
We make stone paper with a calcium carbonate limestone, a material that is actually a waste by-product and found in quarries. We combine this substance with non-toxic resin additives for a result that’s both water and tear resistant.
We don’t use strong smelling chemicals like bleach. Our stone paper bags are chlorine-free and acid-free and don’t create air pollution. They are 100% recyclable. All of these features can help sell your business as being environmentally conscious, and offer your customers an innovative alternative.
