At Marks & Bleed Fine Packaging, we continuously monitor regulations and trends in sustainable packaging to provide our customers with the best options available for truly sustainable products.
We offer a wide range of paper bags made from luxury papers and specialty inks that are 100% recyclable as well as paper bags made with various levels of post-consumer recycled content. We have many options that meet the 40% post-consumer recycled content standard required by many local carryout bag laws.
FSC CERTIFIED PAPER
We work with the Forest Stewardship Council and offer paper certified by the FSC for all your packaging needs.
100% COMPOSTABLE PRODUCTS
Our commitment to sustainability extends to the development of 100% compostable products. Each of our paper bags meets the American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM) Standard D6400. By meeting this standard, we ensure that our inks and glues are safe for the environment and are compliant with many local carryout bag laws.
We offer a variety of sustainable inks, including vegetable and soy-based inks. The inks we offer are all 100% compliant with the US Consumer Product Safety Act of 2008 and consistent with Model Toxics in Packaging Legislation, which regulates heavy metals in packaging.
REUSABLE BAGS: LIFESPAN & DURABILITY
Many local laws regarding carryout bags require reusable bags to meet specific standards of durability and thickness, and to verify the lack of toxic materials. We will work with you to determine which standards apply in your local jurisdiction(s) and offer reusable bag options that meet those standards. Because all of our products are custom, we offer our customers a one-time free testing report prepared by third party companies that specialize in these certifications.
