Looking into the manufacturing of recycled paper bags we began feeling even more uneasy.
Our bags were made from recycled paper but the process it takes to recycle a paper bag & turn it into a new bag is less than ideal
Our decision: stop participating & attempt a more circular program.
As of today, we’re done with our recycled paper bags.
In order to offer a free bag option, we are asking our community to bring us those bags hiding in your closet.
Those folded up paper grocery bags, those non-recyclable coated department store bags, those clean food delivery bags.
We will accept any type of bag EXCEPT FOR SINGLE-USE PLASTIC BAGS. We strongly believe those should be eliminated entirely.
We also highly encourage the purchase of our at-cost bag option. For $1.20 you will receive a brand new washable reusable bag.
Alternatively, peruse our wide selection of forever bags available in Home.
A handful of states have already eliminated single-use plastic bags. Some countries don’t offer a free bag option at all. We want to go a step further.
Help us create a circular bag economy at Asch.
