All of our reusable bags are made from recycled and recyclable materials. The following are some important definitions for the types of material used to make our bags.
A textile using PET from recycled drink bottles.
It is a specialist fibre made using recycled plastics.
Is a thermoplastic polymer resin of the polyester family and is used in synthetic fibers; beverage, food and other liquid containers; thermoforming applications; and engineering resins often in combination with glass fiber.
It is one of the most important raw materials used in man-made fibers.
The majority of the world's PET production is for synthetic fibers (in excess of 60%) with bottle production accounting for around 30% of global demand.
In discussing textile applications, PET is generally referred to as simply "polyester" while "PET" is used most often to refer to packaging applications.
Made from recycled materials
Category 5 on the Green Peace pyramid of biobased plastics
Polypropylene (PP) is a simple polymer structure that do not need plasticizers. The polyolefins within the material pose few risks and have the highest potential for mechanical recycling. In comparison with polyethylene (PE) and traditional plastic shopping bags, NWPP uses fewer problematic additives, has reduced leaching potential in landfills, has reduced potential for dioxin formation during burning and has reduced technical problems and costs during recycling. It is a smart material and very environmentally friendly. It is great for all types of retail packaging, marketing bag promotions and reuse in everyday life. Since we are the product manufacturer, quality control is carefully monitored to ensure that all our products pass the Canadian environment and quality standards.
