The paper used to produce our sacks is sourced from controlled and certified forests. In addition to the maximum reduction of waste paper, since the end of the ‘90s, we have chosen to use water-based inks, as well as a significantly reduced quantity of solvents and other dangerous substances. The glues we use are mainly organically-based, such as potato flour or maize starch, in an attempt to restrict the use of chemicalbased glues.
Our attention on manufacturing has led us to a drastic reduction in CO2 emissions per tonne of sacks produced, and we have now reached extremely low levels both in absolute terms and relating to production volumes. Our water consumption has been progressively reduced: this demonstrates our constant effort in reducing the wastage of this precious environmental resource. Responsible production is driving our company towards a reduced utilisation of chemicals and a more efficient usage of raw materials. Our products may in the majority of cases be 100% recycled, and in others they simply need to be separated to be rendered recyclable.
