Description: Within CEE Schisler Packaging Solutions, we are proud to celebrate the 3rd European Paper Bag Day with our employees and local associations. This annual action day raises awareness of paper carrier bags as a sustainable and efficient packaging option that helps consumers to avoid littering and minimise negative impacts on the environment. This year’s edition will enhance the reusability of paper bags.

Our employees are truly involved in the making of paper bags on a daily basis! This year, the European Paper Bag Day happens to be a Sunday. On October 18th, our “Sunday Team” of dedicated workers will be taking photos of the carrier bags manufacturing, and we will upload their pictures to our website and social media.

In addition, we are happy to renew our annual donation of paper bags to local associations. This year, the donation will benefit 2 very active associations in Thouars, that help the most underprivileged : « Le Secours Populaire » & « Les Restos du Cœur ».
We have chosen to offer reusable 2-ply paper bags, specifically adapted to the transport of frozen and fresh products. Thus, the two associations will be able to donate meals and fresh food products to people in need, without breaking the cold chain. Individuals and families will use these carrier bags to takeaway their food safely, and will keep the paper bags for use and reuse as needed!

Title of event: Reusable free bags for the collection of the paper to the municipality

Location/Address: Lentate sul Seveso – MB - ITALY

Name of initiator/company: Saccarta Spa

Description: In view of this important anniversary we spoke with the municipality where the Saccarta production site is located. We decided to support the municipality in an ecological initiative that it was already undertaking. In fact, the municipality provides citizens with a drum for the collection of saturated oils (very harmful if disposed incorrectly). On this occasion, the municipality will also provide citizens with paper bags, produced by Saccarta, that citizens will use for the transport of various objects, and finally for the collection of paper. This initiative aims for us to communicate the effective reusability of the paper bag and its strength from an environmental point of view.
