The VW brand is also focusing more and more on the issue of sustainability. This is also the case at Austria's largest car show, the Vienna Autoschau.
Our task was to find a sustainable alternative to the paper carrier bags of the past years, as these were always disposed of at the exit.
The result, a bag on PP NonWoven* (explanation of terms)
Why did we choose this material?
The PP Non Woven makes for a greener environment as it is reusable, easy to clean and in our case made from 100% recycled products.
These bags can be washed quickly, sometimes even in a washing machine at 30 degrees. Most Non Woven PP bags are made from five different types of plastic.
Through recycling and reuse, many of these carrier bags do not end up in the environment in the first place.
Another positive aspect is certainly that the durability of the bag means that it is used more often, perhaps even passed on, which in turn has a positive effect on our advertising range.
* A nonwoven fabric is a structure made of fibres of limited length, continuous fibres (filaments) or cut yarns of any kind and any origin, which have been joined together in some way to form a nonwoven (a fibre layer, a fibre pile) and bonded to each other; this excludes the interlacing or intertwining of yarns, as occurs in weaving, knitting, lace production, braiding and the manufacture of tufted products.
Nonwovens are a group of materials with a wide variety of properties, which can be specifically adapted to a wide range of application requirements due to the large number of usable raw materials and manufacturing variants.
