The bag can be washed at a low temperature or recycled. and they are suitable for contact with food.
“We are pleased that our eco-friendly bags have been positively received by retailers and their customers,” said Gvidas Krolis, the CEO of Bagfactory.
“Bagfactory bags are manufactured through an automated process, in large quantities. Therefore, they cost shoppers considerably less than the reusable bags that have been available to date, which are usually made in a manual way."
