The Vicbag Group as an International company along with our partners, we have always taken a responsible approach towards the environment. Our eco-friendly policy is based on 3 factors:
THE REUSABLE BAG : SOCIAL RESPONSABILITY
The plastic bags are still the most common way of carrying goods, however they pose a great threat to the environment. On average, each bag is used only 20 minutes and it then takes 400 years for it to completely decompose! Reusable bags can be used over 100 times and has a much longer life cycle than plastic carrier bags. This will help you lower your Company’s carbon footprint and will reduce the damage made to the environment. Since our creation in 1984, Vicbag has been at the forefront of the manufacturing and distribution of ecological alternatives to plastic bags.
VICBAG’S COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
Vicbag uses leftover & other recycled materials and produces bags that are made from recyclable materials and can also offer bags that are 100% recyclable. RPET material is an example of eco-friendly material which is produced from recycled plastic bottles. RPET is extremely popular with many of our clients as the material can be further recycled.
All of our factories are certified and regularly audited by international independent organizations (SGS, Intertek, Veritas Group) to ensure that they meet with Social, Health and Environmental Compliance Standards. Many of our factories are BSCI members and comply with ISO 9001/2000 standards. All Vicbag products comply with the European Commission’s REACH regulations as well as UE 1935/2004/CE.
