What is Climate Neutral?
Having a zero carbon footprint refers to achieving net zero carbon emissions by balancing a measured amount of carbon released with an equivalent amount sequestered or offset, or buying enough carbon credits to make up the difference.'Eco' terms
We understand the need to reduce our CO2 emissions, which is why we are now offering a selection of carbon neutral paper carrier bags. We also know that this is important to our customers. We are currently only offering Climate Neutral bags on selected lines, but we hope they will continue to grow.
We currently offer Climate Neutral in:
* Brown toptwist bag 240x110x310mm (10”)
* Brown toptwist bag 320x140x420mm (13”)
* A variety of sizes are available for printed stock, please contact us for information and sizing.
We all hear different ‘eco’ terms thrown around, and we might even refer to some ourselves as they make sense, but do you really know what it means? Or the differences?
Recycled materials can be split into 2 main types ones that can be recycled many times and those that can be recycled only a couple of times before they are downcycled.
Most recycled materials lose properties each time they are recycled when they are reaching the end they are recycled into lesser items, the items that are created usually cannot be recycled.
Simply waste or materials that can be processed and used again.
A product is capable of disintegrating into natural elements in a compost environment, leaving no toxicity in the soil. This typically must occur in about 90 days.
It means an item that can break down into natural materials in the environment without causing harm. This process requires oxygen and moisture to be able to work. (So if an item that is biodegradable ends up in landfill, the conditions do not match the correct criteria for this process to happen and the item will not degrade as it should)
Products not capable of being broken down by the action of living organisms, and burning of these items causes more pollution in the environment.
How do carbon offset credits work?
A carbon offset is a reduction in emissions of carbon dioxide or greenhouse gases made to compensate for or to offset an emission produced elsewhere. When you buy an offset, you fund projects that reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. One carbon credit is equal to one tonne of carbon dioxide, or in some markets, carbon dioxide equivalent gases.
