Continuing coverage in the media have drawn attention from many regarding the product safety of some reusable bags. Here at Bag Makers we want you to know that all of our bags are entirely safe. What exactly does safe mean?
Each of our bags, coatings, and imprint inks is independently tested and fully compliant with all currently enacted legislation. This compliance primarily encompasses California Proposition 65, the Consumer Product Safety Act of 1972 (CPSA), the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (CPSIA), and the Toxics in Packaging Prevention Act (TIPPA). We’ve instituted an extensive compliance program that continuously evaluates and updates our products and processes as these laws change. For example, acceptable levels of some dangerous elements will become more stringent in August, 2011 under the CPSIA and our products will be fully compliant even as these new measures take effect. Supporting compliance documents are available upon request.
While lead is one of the primary heavy metals regulated by this legislation, Bag Makers' has expanded our product safety testing to include other heavy core metals as well, namely mercury, chromium, and cadmium. We're very pleased to tell you that all of our bags are heavy metal-free for each of these materials. In addition, this level of compliance encompasses the imprint inks we use. The truth is, we've been fully compliant for years, giving great focus to the quality and safety of the bags you provide to your customers. It's our commitment to you and our market to offer only the best, safest bags to sell.
Please rest assured that we're hard at work making sure your clients can be completely comfortable about the use of our bags to promote your business. So the next time they're looking for safe, reusable bags, Bag Makers line of totes will give you the peace of mind that comes along with a safe, quality product.
