- There is bright green overlock stitching and double white stitching at bottom of bag.
- The bags are printed with the CS Reuse Program objectives regarding reuse and reducing landfill, the CheckSammy logo and instructions are provided for scheduling bag pick up.
- The bags are made of Recycled Type 2 HDPE plastic making them lightweight and strong and having less of an impact on the environment. CS Reuse Bags are made from this type of recycled plastic which is Eco-friendly as they are made mainly from post-consumer products and are in turn recyclable at the end of their useful life. It is also the most environmentally stable of all plastics – giving off no harmful fumes into the environment and considered a safe plastic as it does not contain BPA. Although HDPE is non-biodegradable, CS Reuse bags are recycled and used again. Recycling HDPE is also more cost efficient to produce a product than it is to manufacture from virgin plastic.
