“Smartbags allowed us to create a product that is unique to our University and fits in with our GREG branding and image. The ability to have the recycling information printed onto the bags themselves is far more efficient and effective than a standard recycling container and lose leaflet which may get lost. They look striking and have been positively received by the students enabling them to recycle more efficiently in their flats”.

’s Student Accommodation have a campaign to improve sustainable awareness and recycling with its students. Smartbags.co.uk has helped them create a bespoke bag which they handed out to students for use in their flats.
The clever integration of social media into something physical to engage and explain is what we love. Facebook and Twitter account details have been clearly displayed along with a QR code. You can imagine that students would take more notice of a bag like this than a sign printed and pinned to a board telling them how to recycle
The use of full colour digital printing makes this bag more than a refuse sack. The side panels explain what items can be recycled. One for cans, bottles and glass and the other side for paper, cardboard and magazines.
The bag also features Greg - Green. Reduce. Environment.... Genius!! Greg is the sustainable champion for University of Birmingham's Student Accommodation. You can check him out on Twitter @UOBGREG or on Facebook - Who is Greg?
Made from durable laminated Woven PP with strong webbing handles, featuring a stitched internal divider to accommodate the dual recycling requirement.
The addition of a base tipping handle improves functionality and makes the bag easy to pick up and collect the recycling. A solution that is practical yet fun and engaging!
