Bags manufactured in conventional Polyethylene, under the specifications of UNE 53.942. This standard indicates the minimum and maximum measures and thicknesses that a polyethylene bag must have to be reused at least 15 times, as well as the maximum CO2 emissions and energy consumption resulting from its production.
The evident environmental benefits of this type of certified bag have been endorsed by numerous analyses of their life cycle, compared to that of the alternatives on the market. These analyses scientifically show that reusable polyethylene bags are the packaging with the lowest environmental impact.
