Tree-free paper bags - PaperWise

At Natural Bag we always strive to come up with the most durable and responsible solution in terms of materials used and production ways.  


PaperWise

The Ancient Egyptians already knew it: to make paper you do not have to cut down trees, they used papyrus from the papyrus plant instead. Throughout the ages different types of materials were used as information carriers such as parchment, clay tablets, bark, bones and shells.

Paper in its current form originally comes from China. Well into the 19th century, paper production generally was small and local in nature. With industrialization and the invention of board paper, the production of paper increased large scale along with the demand for the primary raw material of paper: cellulose that can be obtained from trees.

The production process of making paper from trees takes a lot of energy, water and chemicals and results in different emissions to air and water. These emissions may include nitrogen oxides, sulfur oxides, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, formaldehyde and particulate matter. Deforestation and consequential loss of biodiversity and erosion is a serious global problem. With replanting trees you can mitigate some of the harmful effects of using trees for paper. It should and could be done better.

We have to go back to the source, back to the origin of the raw material of paper. The world is ready for a structural and sustainable solution for not using trees for paper. That solution is available NOW! 

Unique in the world, we offer the revolutionary next generation paper bags:


TREE-FREE PAPER BAGS

At Natural Bag we love bags and trees! That's why we choose to have our paper bags made from PaperWise, a special paper for which no trees have been cut down. This unique paper has the same high quality as traditional A-grade paper.

Save forests. Choose the one and only truly sustainable paper bag. Go Natural Bag!

PaperWise paper is made from agricultural waste material such as leaves and stems that remain after all the food products are harvested (i.e. rice, wheat, corn, sugar cane). These bio-based resources (re)grow annually as opposed to trees that need up to as many as 80 years to grow before it is made into paper.  

By making clever use of agri-residues, which otherwise as "waste" have no value, scarce resources are optimally utilized. In addition we also save on CO2 emissions for the production of this unique paper and protect forests without compromising on the end product's quality. The result is a truly durable high-quality paper and paper board.

IABR - 2018-2020 - The Missing Link


The International Architecture Biennial Rotterdam (IABR) 2018 is dedicated to the Sustainable Development Goals from the United Nations. Because our way of living is at the expense of the planet and causes fast growing social inequality, we have to make space and share this space better  between people and with nature. 

Natural Bag was asked to exhibit her innovative and 100% sustainable bags as part of the solution (Missing Link) into the transition towards a circular and sustainable society.
