CALGARY, March 27, 2019 /CNW/ - Nine to fifteen billion plastic bags are used in Canada each year – that's over 200/year for each Canadian. Reducing the environmental impact of plastic is important to our nation's future – and there's now a groundbreaking option for Canadians where everyone wins: Compostable shopping bags at an economical price. OneEarth Packaging is committed to reducing waste and helping Canada's battle of the bag.
Refresh Marketing is working in partnership with OneEarth Packaging to bring compostable shopping bags to Canada's largest retailers, from grocery to department stores. Customizable bags with the options for 4-colour printing gives us the ability to meet any retailer's brand requirements. Following the ban on plastic bags in Montreal and the introduction of municipal composting programs, Refresh Marketing sought a solution that would complement the spirit of the ban, support city compost programs to collect food scraps, while maintaining convenience and ease of shopping for consumers. These revolutionary disposable bags are composed of a leak-free design using materials that meet ASTM D6400 composting standards and contain no additives to enhance decomposition. Making them compliant with municipal composting curbside pick-ups and all composting certifications requirements in Canada.
With a desire to protect the environment while keeping costs affordable for retailers, Refresh Marketing sought out a leader and innovator in the industry to meet the bagging challenge. We focus on reducing waste economically. The partnership between these two has fast-tracked bringing this much-needed product to Canadian consumers.
T-shirt and produce bags offer an eco-friendly solution for customers and retailers alike. With a look and feel of plastic, yet compatible with all compostable programs, these bags are engineered to breakdown and turn into healthy soil products, just like organic material. Meanwhile, consumers & retailers no longer need expensive reusable bags, only to be forgotten at home when needed most. Customers have a more cost-effective method of composting, retaining the convenience of a single-use bag that can easily be repurposed to a can liner to collect food scraps.
OneEarth has focused on controlling all aspects of the supply chain to streamline the process and reduce the cost of manufacturing these bags. With leading-edge technology, the OneEarth bags are created for sustainability and economy. These savings, are passed along to retailers both large and small, benefiting the customer with the convenience of disposable bags without a large cost increase.
