Based on international leadership and proximity to all partners, Vicbag has always favored a responsible and respectful approach to the environment through 3 axes:
THE REUSABLE BAG: A SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
Plastic bags used by small traders are among the most widely used consumer goods in the world. Their practicality to transport the most common products of consumption is no longer to prove. However, their abundance is a major environmental and social problem. According to recent figures, between 500 and 1,000 billion new plastic bags are used each year.
On average, each bag is only used for 20 minutes and will then take 400 years to completely decompose!
Reusable bags can be used more than 100 times and have a much longer life than plastic bags. They contribute to the preservation of the environment. Vicbag has been fighting plastic bags since the 1980s by offering economic and ecological alternatives. Indeed, through its wide range of products,
Vicbag helps any company wanting to “go green” and send a strong ecological message.
VICBAG’S COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
Vicbag uses in the composition of its bags an increased share resulting from the recycling of raw materials. As a result, they can come from “factory waste”, from household consumption or from bags used on construction sites … until the realization of 100% recycled bags.
Recycled material from plastic bottles, the RPET is the most ecological product in the Vicbag range and has been very popular in recent years.
