History of the bag
The large version of the Hinza bag is a Swedish classic from 1957 that was produced by the plastics and chemicals company Perstorp AB. The bag, which was called "Shoppingbag 329", was designed by Perstorp AB's employee Curt Christopherson. Production of the bag was discontinued in the mid 60s when food shops started giving out free disposable plastic bags.
Karin Bachstätter, who is the great-grandchild of Perstorp AB's founder and has grown up with the practical plastic shoppers, restarted together with her family production of the bags in 2006 under the name Hinza.
About Hinza Green Plastic
The Hinza bags in the Green Plastic range are a climate-smart choice. Most of the plastic in these bags are made of bio-plastic, a "green" plastic made from sugar cane, which is renewable.
When sugar cane is growing, it absorbs carbon dioxide from the atomosphere. If green plastic from sugar cane is burned, the carbon dioxide is released back into the atmosphere. As the amount of carbon dioxide does not increase, as it does when burning regular traditional plastic from fossil raw materials, there is no impact on the climate.
The sugar cane that is used to make the green plastic in our Green Plastic shoppers is grown on Brazilian plantations located at least 2,500 km from the Amazon.
Green plastic is recycled in the same way as traditional plastic. Differences between surfaces may occur.
