ecoLoop bags are recycled from waste film. The German Federal Environment Agency also rated the carrier bags made of recycled plastic – which carry the eco-label The Blue Angel – as a good alternative. Carrier bags are manufactured in a closed material loop, which processes used plastic film waste into recycled raw material for the production of new bags.
Every ecoLoop bag has a carbon footprint which is up to 40 % smaller when compared with virgin materials. ecoLoop products from Papier-Mettler carry the "Der Blaue Engel"eco-label, so this means that you can be sure that ecoLoop bags and carrier bags contain at least 80% post-consumer recycled material.
Even if you do not have sufficient waste film available and it is not, therefore, possible to close the loop fully, it’s still possible for your carrier bags to be produced using recycled materials. Try it out!
