“Hi, I saw your film at parker school I was the 12 year old kid who asked two many question hahahaha but i was wondering jokingly and seriously what will the disc case for the movie be made out of?” – Jamie, 12 years old
Doubtless many people know Bag It has been conducting independent screenings all over the US, and in some international locations, too. The response has been wonderful – proactive, and positive. We are so amazed by the number of people eager to change our current consumption and waste-based society.
So Jamie, thanks for your many questions! Here’s the answer to your most recent one: The Bag It team searched far and wide for an alternative to plastic packaging for our dvds. Finally, we discovered a company in the Netherlands, PaperFoam, making an environmentally-friendly alternative to plastic packaging.
PaperFoams’s dvd packaging creates 85-90% less CO2 emissions vs. plastic, as you can see in this diagram below:
Just this month, PaperFoam was approved for European dry food packaging. As it is 100 % biodegradable and recyclable, we hope that they are setting a trend for packaging manufacturers worldwide.
Keep the questions coming!
