In times of rising concerns about climate change and environmental pollution, consumers are increasingly changing their behaviour and making more environmentally friendly choices. Consequently, sustainable products and alternative packaging materials are gaining momentum. Made from wood, paper bags are based on a renewable resource. In Europe, their raw material is sourced from sustainably managed forest areas. The platform “The Paper Bag”, the association of Europe’s leading kraft paper and paper bag manufacturers, explains the significance and why paper bags are a sustainable solution.

The “The Paper Bag” platform was founded in 2017 by the leading European kraft paper manufacturers and producers of paper bags. They dedicate themselves to promoting the advantages of paper packaging. “The Paper Bag” is steered by the organisations CEPI Eurokraft and EUROSAC. –
