Sustainable carrier bags

Our extra strong papers for reusable carrier bags are suitable for tough conditions and heavy loads. All materials are made from primary fibres, sustainably managed resources and are fully recyclable in regular paper recycling. Our paper production in Europe is already 97% fossil free and by 2030, all integrated mills should be entirely fossil free.
