Recycled Natural Shippers from Ecology Packaging LLC

Updated Bottom Turnover Compliance Information

October 1,2016

Recent reports Suggest there are now an estimated 60 million Americans affected by plastic bag legislation. A statewide ban on plastic bags has been passed in California – and many new cities and countries have moved or are moving toward similar legislation. The goal of these laws is to encourage stores and patrons to switch to reusable or more easily recycled bags – like paper.

Ecology Packaging is your source for recycled paper bags and eco-friendly shipping and mailing bags. Our recycled natural merchandise and SOS bags meet or exceed the minimum 40% post-consumer requirements and are 100% recyclable and compostable. We also offer handled shopping bags that are in full compliance with bag legislation. This is important to clients located in areas impacted by these laws, but also to companies who sell online and ship merchandise to areas requiring compliant bags.

To more effectively serve the growing number of our clients affected by bag legislation and to be compliant in areas requiring such information, Ecology Packaging will be updating the bottom turnover logo printed on all recycled natural merchandise and SOS bags we produce. This new bottom turnover information will be printed on stock recycled natural and custom/printed recycled natural bags.

Effective October 1, 2016 all recycled natural product manufactured at our Wisconsin, Massachusetts, Oklahoma, Illinois and Arkansas facilities will include the following information on the bottom turnover:

Made with 40%-90% Post-consumer recycled paper and water based links. This bag is 100% recyclable.

Current stock, post-printed, and hot stamped product will be transitioned to the new bottom turnover information as it is sold and restocked.

New printed bags will be printed with this information unless specifically requested on your purchase order not to print the recycled bottom turnover. For custom printed orders, the bottom turnover will be printed in black whenever possible, or in the darkest available color to maximize readability.

Repeat prints without copy changes will remain as they were (with or withOut a bottom turnover logo) – until such a time that copy is changed per customer request. If you would like alternative turnover information on your recycled natural printed bags, please request it on your purchase order and you will be sent a proof for approval before your order is scheduled.
