As plastic bags continue to harm the environment, Vicbag’s ecological range of bags provides the answer!

Each year an estimated 6 billion plastic bags are produced globally, of which a large proportion wind up at the bottom of the ocean and never biodegrade. Sea life is not the only environmental concern; landfills are becoming an increasing problem as they continue to contaminate our soil and water.

The process of photo- degradation whereby plastic bags are chemically broken down and absorbed by the sunlight produces dangerous levels of contamination and plastic bags can take up to 1,000 years to fully decompose.

Since October 2015, following the UK Government’s levy on plastic bags the use of plastic bags has plummeted by 85%! However, paying 5pence a bag can add up over time with the average family using up to 1,200 plastic bags per year. Over the same period one single reusable bag can be used over 500 times!

At Vicbag, we ensure that we produce reusable bags that are made from 100% recycled materials which in turn can be recycled. In addition we avoid the use of harmful materials which may harm the environment.

Make the right call and take a look at Vicbag’s full range of eco-friendly bags which include bags made from recycled plastic bottles. A great choice for the environment as well as your own pocket!
