Paper bags gain ground in Europe
Paper carrier bag converters and kraft paper producers join forces for a sustainable world

With the launch of an informative web presence and their first publication “The Green Book”, the platform “The Paper Bag” sets off. It was founded by the leading European kraft paper manufacturers and producers of paper bags. Against the background of the current legislative regulations concerning the reduction of plastic bags in the EU member states, they engage themselves to promote the comprehensive environmental credentials of paper carrier bags and support retailers in their packaging decisions in order to foster a worldwide bio-based economy. The Paper Bag is steered by the organisations CEPI Eurokraft and EUROSAC.
