To support the shift to renewable and recyclable materials in shopping and takeaway bags, Stora Enso launches CarrEco Brown. Made from 100% fresh fibers, the material has high strength and tear resistance properties and is also safe for direct food contact.
By offering renewable, fiber-based materials suited for paper bags, Stora Enso accelerates the shift away from plastic. Stora Enso now expands its paper bag materials portfolio with CarrEco Brown, a new unbleached and uncoated board that is fully recyclable. CarrEco Brown offers exceptional strength properties suitable for strong shopping bags through its unique three-layer structure. The material is also safe for direct food contact and contains only FDA-compliant chemicals, making it ideal for takeaway food and groceries.
“Unbleached paper bags are a good fit with the preferences of today’s eco-conscious consumers. We are well-positioned to meet the growing demand for paper bags, especially in trending end-use areas like takeaway food. Our newest material CarrEco Brown can help our customers sustainably seize these growth opportunities,” says Oscar Duarte, Business Segment director, Kraftliners at Stora Enso Packaging Materials.
