Bags

packaging meets verified transparency

A startling 75% of the waste from old electrical goods, including refrigerators and air conditioners, ends up in landfill or is incinerated. As pioneers in sustainable textiles, we’ve disrupted the industry with our 100% post-consumer recycled polypropylene reusable bags.

Manufactured entirely from discarded appliances, these bags are not only resilient and practical for daily use, but also significantly reduce environmental impact. Our RPP packaging solutions challenge the notion of what recycled materials can achieve, setting new standards for durability and eco-conscious production in the industry.

Recycled Polypropylene

RPP Bags

Distinctly sourced from 100% recycled polypropylene extracted from discarded household products and single-use food containers, our bags are a beacon in the fight against plastic waste. 

While most on the market satisfy only a 20% recycling requirement, we go the extra mile, utilizing processes that consume 46% less water, reduce CO2 emissions by 71%, and use 88% less energy compared to the production of virgin polypropylene. The manufacturing of these bags embodies Waste2Wear’s commitment to merging quality with sustainability.
