Ecological actions that Design Bags has launched
Climate change is the greatest environmental threat that we face, and, in part, we have great fault with humans. Our way of producing based on an excessive consumption of highly polluting energies is the cause of the increase of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere and, consequently, of global warming.
Our company is aware of this fact. Therefore, we feel that we have a responsibility as a company to change and take a step towards sustainable trade every day. Design Bags has launched these ecological actions that we tell you below.
Our company has created the rPET collection in order to give recyclable plastic bottles a second life. In this way, we prevent certain plastic containers from ending up contaminating our terrestrial, coastal and maritime environment.
With this collection, in addition to implementing the 3R policy based on reducing, reusing and recycling, we also save on energy and oil. Using existing packaging means helping the planet by preserving natural resources and decreasing the concentration of greenhouse gases, since no new containers are produced.
Our eco-sustainable range are products made from total respect for the environment. Thus, they are made from start to finish with less harmful production processes for our environment. Our ecological items are made with bamboo, cork or recycled cardboard. Among them, you can find backpacks, folders, notebooks, usbs, power banks and a long list of products perfect for the merchandising of your company. In addition, our articles are backed by certifications that guarantee our quality and sustainability.
FAIR TRADE PRODUCTS
At Design Bags, we know that fair trade, apart from promoting the improvement of the working conditions of cotton producers, also helps the sustainability of the environment. Therefore, we have fair trade organic cotton bags that have the Fairtrade seal. To all this, we must add that this production system guarantees that the final consumer buys a quality product.
USE OF LESS AGGRESSIVE INKS
Also, we have chosen to use less aggressive inks for the environment and society. So the printing and dyeing of our items is made with azo free ink. These inks are free of lead and nitrite so that they do not contaminate and generate less environmental impact. In addition, we do not use mixtures with heavy metals harmful to health such as Zinc or Cadmium.

Reducing climate change depends largely on our awareness of the problem. Therefore, it is essential that companies set an example by carrying out ecological actions. In this way, they will be promoting a sustainable life model among their clients, followers of the brand or attendees, in the case of events. greater sensitivity to our environment.
