"The bags are proving very popular - there's been a lot of interest in them when they've been on offer at our stalls and events.
We knew we wanted bags that were made out of recycled material and Smart Bags were the only suppliers we found who could offer this. We had excellent customer service from Smartbags at all stages of the ordering process both times we have worked with them and we'd definitely recommend them."
Elaine Gibb, Aberdeen City Council
Aberdeen City Council were looking for a giveaway item to help promote recycling and reusing resources. They decided on a reusable shopping pouch bag made from recycled plastic bottles as the perfect tool to combine both messages.
The pouch bags are filled with recycling information and given away at community events and roadshows, where they have proved to be very popular. They are also used as goody bags when working with local schools. They are filled with a variety of promotional items such as stationary and fridge magnets and the children are always very excited to get their hands on one!
A shopping pouch bag made from rPET allowed Aberdeen Council to give people a practical item with a positive message. It also allowed them to promote their website so that people can go online to check for recycling information.
