Procos GmbH has produced a 100% recycled bag, which was unveiled at the recent Pack & Gift show in Paris and will be showcased at the upcoming Packaging Innovations London and Luxe Pack Monaco exhibitions. “With this latest innovation, Procos demonstrate once again that going totally green does not have to result in a sacrifice of luxury and prestige in packaging,” claims the company.

The paper stock used to make the bag contains up to 100% post consumer waste, but remains of high durability. The handles of the bag are also made from 100% recycled materials. According to Procos the additional cost does not exceed 10 or 15 per cent of the total price.

The bag generated a lot of interest in Paris as brand managers and designers continue to seek out packaging that has been produced with a lower environmental impact,” adds Procos.
