Paper Bag Co supports European Paper Bag Day!

Here at Paper Bag Co, we enjoy taking part in any event that supports the awareness of paper bags, and the sustainability benefits of choosing them. Selling these bags is what we do at the end of the day! The 6th European Bag Day is coming up next week on the 18th of October, and we thought we would take a deeper look at the theme for this year's day.

Keep on reading to find out more, as well as thoughts from our Founder and Director Jon Marling. 

What is European Paper Bag Day? 

European Bag Day commences on the 18th of October 2023, and it’s a day that helps to promote the use of paper bags and paper packaging. The year 2023 will be the 6th consecutive year, and here at Paper Bag Co we can’t wait to celebrate. 

The theme for this year will be ‘Trust your paper bag!’. But what does this mean? This theme focuses on the need for individuals to take action and choose paper bags as an alternative to plastic single-use bags. 

The theme for the 2022 edition was “if You're 'Fantastic', Do Something 'Dramatic' To Cut The 'Plastic', Use 'Paper Bags'.

It is important to trust your paper bag, because it is very resistant to wear and tear, and can carry a pretty substantial weight. Our overall aim is to encourage more people to take up the fight against plastic by adopting quality paper bags that are not only much easier to recycle but can also be heavily reused to promote an overall reduction in waste. 

We thought we would sit down with our Founder and Director Jon Marling, to find out his thoughts on European Bag Day and how it will impact consumers' sustainable decisions over time. 

“European Paper Bag Day is a great opportunity to raise awareness surrounding the use of paper bags and the impact they have on the environment. We produce high-quality paper bags that help to build a sustainable future for us and the planet.

Spreading the word is really important to me and the rest of the team at Paper Bag Co, because this helps many individuals make the change and act towards a more sustainable lifestyle“.

We will be more than happy to discuss printing options with you and we can work on a variety of different briefs! Our paper bags come with a quality guarantee that will keep you and your customers satisfied.
