Bannerbags has been trading for over 5 years starting out recycling banners from Liverpool city centre to promote the Liverpool Capital of Culture.
We have continued to recycle banners from numerous events and advertising campaigns and are the only recycling company in the UK converting PVC advertising material into fashion bags and accessories? To date we have converted more than 17 tonnes of material from landfill and converted it into reusable products.
The bags are created largely from banners and the webbing from recycled car seat belts meaning there is very little waste in the production process, and apart from a few fittings and thread very little virgin material is used.
We are constantly developing our ideas and operating procedure to be as environmentally aware as possible with regards to production, shipping and erection to keep transportation to a minimum.
In essence our intention is to create functional and practically designed products from waste material to comply with the principles of creating environmentally sustainable products with minimum negative environmental impact.
These efforts have been recognised through receiving numerous awards, our most recent accolade winning a BT Business Essence of the Entrepreneur Awards 2010. Others include The Design Show Liverpool Award for Best Accessory, Best Product Finalist at the National Recycling Awards and The Creative Innovation Award by Creative Lancashire.
