If You Care Bag Paper Snack & Sandwich
Quality with integrity. Natural barrier properties. No paraffin wax or any other coating. Keeps bread soft up to 6 hours. Healthy home. Healthy planet. Healthy you. Those are big promises but you can't have one without the others, so here's our thinking. Like it or not, we are all intimately connected within our world. Choices we make affect us all, even the choice of snack and sandwich bags we use at home. If you care about your choices, so do we. And when we care, we all benefit. No Petroleum Products. Some paper bags are coated with paraffin wax made from non-renewable petroleum resources. Not ours. Using If You Care FSC Certified 100% Unbleached Paper Snack and Sandwich Bags helps reduce petroleum use and the amount of pollution in the environment. Chlorine. We use unbleached, totally chlorine free (TCF) paper, eliminating the risk of chlorine residues entering the watercycle where it can have harmful long-term ecosystem effects. Lifecycle. Globally, millions of tons of valuable biobased materials go to landfill, where they remain useless and worse, produce greenhouse gasses that accelerate climate change. Composting. Our bags are compostable so they return organic material to our ecosystem. Micro fauna get a good meal and produce soil-enriching, life-giving compost that locks up carbon, contributing to soil health, ready for the next generation of life. It all adds up to our circle of life moment. Lovely thought. FSC & Compostable Certified Unbleached Totally Chlorine-Free (TCF).
