Visit to Bagcraft® Facility in Chicago, Illinois

NOVOLEX employees recently visited the facility of one of the newest additions to our brand – Bagcraft®. To continue our tradition of sustainability, we added Bagcraft® to our packaging family because of its history of producing incredible, sustainable products and values.

One of the amazing features of Bagcraft® is their EcoCraft® line of paper products. The EcoCraft® line creates packaging from unbleached natural paper, which reduces raw material waste. The natural paper reduces the amount of wood used, net energy, sulfur dioxide, greenhouse gas emissions, nitrogen oxides, water and solid waste compared to bleached paper.

Bagcraft’s® sustainable history has earned them significant recognition in the past, including an award from the Chicago Department of Environment, for identifying improvements in energy efficiency, productivity and waste reduction, and an Environmental Stewardship Award from the Orion Energy Systems for the company’s positive impact on the environment.

With an incredible history and promising future for sustainability practices, NOVOLEX is proud to welcome Bagcraft® to our packaging family.
