CONTAINS 19-28 October 2007

Vegware products have been selected for exhibition at CONTAINS, and exhibition running for 19-28 October hosted in shipping containers at Newcastle’s Monument (Grainger Street, Newcastle).

CONTAINS explores the stories behind the products we use every day – how they’re made, the materials used, the energy consumed, the miles travelled – in an innovative, inspiring and accessible exhibition that shows how design can make a difference.

New compostable film bags launched

We have now launched our first compostable film bags. One of our first customers had this to say:

“We have recently taken delivery of our custom bags and are over the moon
with them!

Little Cherry retails a comprehensive range of eco-friendly children’s party
products, which include 100% recycled FSC certified gift wrap and
invitations, printed using vegetable dyes. We were interested in sourcing an
eco-friendly packaging to protect our products through our storage and
distribution process.

We had the choice of using either biodegradable PLA packaging or Vegware’s
line of custom made compostable bags. After looking into both we found that
Vegware’s custom bags were not only far superior in terms of quality and
feel, but they were also more eco-friendly as they are compostable and made
from GM free wood pulp.

We are delighted that our packaging choice does not have a negative effect
on the environment, and very happy that our product presentation is not
compromised.

Vegware were extremely helpful, responsive and knowledgeable throughout, and
we will be happy to continue to use them in the future!”
