All bags, both plastic and paper, have a negative environmental impact. A lot of resources are spend on both production, transportation and recycling.

The objective of the “Better Bag Initiative” is to reduce the use of plastic and paper bags. We want to encourage our customers to choose a more sustainable option. There is a great potential to reduce the consumption of carrying bags a lot, by changing habits only. This is what we are hoping the initiative will be contributing to. As an alternative to plastic bags, BIK BOK will offer more sustainable shopping bags to its customers, as well as sell plastic carrying bags that are manufactured in a more environmentally friendly manner.

Any surplus from the sales of our plastic bags will be donated to the project The Ocean Clean Up. The Ocean Cleanup is a non-profit organization, developing advanced technologies to rid the world’s oceans of plastic. By utilizing the ocean currents to our advantage, our passive drifting systems are estimated to clean up half the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in 5 years’ time.
