The plastic bag ban, which started to be implemented in 2019, proved the importance of tote bags. You are now familiar with Netpak Tote Bags, which are both reusable and environmentally friendly. The period of free plastic bags applied in the markets as per a bill included in the new environmental regulations proposals accepted in the parliament is coming to an end. According to the draft law, consumer paper bags will be used instead of these bags.
BAG PERIOD IN MARKETS
Tote bags have attracted a great deal of attention after the paid bag system, which was put into practice in markets and all stores. Netpak Tote Bags, which is the biggest friend of the environment thanks to its 100% recyclable, antibacterial fabric, continues to serve you either as laminated or nonwoven. But there was still an unobtrusive increase in disposable bags for free in grocery stores. In the new decision taken to prevent this situation, with the amendment made in the regulation, consumers will be obliged to use paper bags or paper bags.
TARGETED SAVINGS '20 BILLION' WITH TOTE BAG AND PAPER BAG
Speaking to Hürriyet, Environmental Commission Chairman Muhammet Balta said, “After the paid bag application, there has been a great increase in the use of free disposable bags in the markets. In order to prevent this, with a new regulation change, the obligation to use paper bags is introduced. The Turkish Environment Agency, which will be established by law, will work on a system based on the return of the products released to the market with a deposit fee and the refund of the deposit fee, in line with the zero waste target. Muhammet Balta, Chairman of the Parliamentary Environment Committee, said, “With the bag application, consumption decreased by 80 percent. 1.5 billion lira was saved. With the Environment Agency, we will recycle 90 percent of beverage packages, which are currently around 20 billion liras, and increase the recycling rate from 13 percent to 35 percent. In other words, we will save 20 billion from the money we throw away.”
