Command Packaging, Bunzl Dist. Bring Bag Ban-Compliant Reusable Plastic Bags To Grocers

Command Packaging, a U.S. manufacturer of reusable shopping and restaurant bags, has entered into a partnership with Bunzl Distribution USA to bring smarterbags—bag ban-compliant reusable plastic bags—to grocers in areas where bag bans have eliminated ultra-thin plastic T-shirt bags.

“Contrary to what many have been led to believe, plastic grocery bags are not going out of style; we’re innovating ways to make them better and changing age-old perceptions about their shortcomings,” said Pete Grande, CEO of Command Packaging. “This new partnership with Bunzl will go a long way in providing a reusable, recyclable bag for grocers and consumers who care about the environment and affordability.”

“Bunzl Distribution in California is proud to align with Command Packaging and their reusable smarterbags,” said Terry Frank, SVP at Bunzl Distribution USA. “Pete and his company are committed to providing a viable, long-term solution to the upcoming bag ban in Los Angeles, as well as to bans springing up across the country.”

Made from recycled agricultural plastic collected in California, smarterbags are a cost-effective and environmentally friendly alternative to single-use paper bags and imported reusable bags. According to a Chico State University study, smarterbags have a lower carbon footprint compared to imported reusable or paper bags.

“Not only are smarterbags a great solution for us because they’re affordable, easy to use and durable, but they’re also sustainable. They’re manufactured here in California with recycled plastic agricultural film that otherwise would end up in a landfill,” said Frank. “It’s important to us that we give our customers an opportunity to reduce, reuse and recycle whenever we can.”

Smarterbags meet all standards to qualify as reusable bags in California cities that have implemented bag ban ordinances. Smarterbags are strong and are engineered to be used 125 times. The product is easy to carry, easy to use, and durable in all types of weather.
