Saving our planet; one bag at a time

December 10, 2008

No minimums, complete customisation and total happiness. That’s what we promise our customers

And we deliver! Every time! Pennsylvania wine aficionados will now get a free wine bag made by us.

Mark, who runs was concerned about the avoidable packaging used when people buy wine.

When he set out looking for a solution he found us. Here’s a testimonial he kindly sent us: “I wanted to get some reusable bags made with my web site logo. Norquest was the only company willing to make a relatively small number of bags. They were easy to work with and produced a custom bag exactly the way I wanted. I am very happy with the final product”

Here’s what Mark says on his website:

“Have you ever stopped to think about the number of paper and plastic bags you bring home every time you visit a Pennsylvania Wine & Spirits Shoppe? If you buy three bottles, two of them are put into their own separate brown paper bag, then they are all put into a larger brown paper bag, and lastly that is put into a plastic bag. The rule seems to be n+1: If you buy n bottles, you’ll be given n+1 bags.

So in the spirit of going green, PAWineTalk is pleased to offer our own reusable wine bag. Made from durable non-woven polypropylene, our bags hold three regular bottles or magnums, with internal dividers to keep them separated. And of course it sports a nifty PAWineTalk logo!”

As we’re based in India, we don’t get to meet as many of our customers as we’d like to. Some kindly write and tell us that they are happy with what we do for them, and send us a testimonial, it makes us very happy.

Mark is so right. Studies indicate that gift wrapping adds an additional one million tons per week to US landfills. If people only switched to our reusable gift bags and wine bags, the US could achieve a huge saving in landfill waste!

See the line at When you look you’ll be pleasantly surprised to see how affordable they are. Why mess up our world? It’s the only planet we have folks!


  1. This is a great way to reduce and reuse. Grocery stores should do more of this. Don’t offer paper or plastic. Customers should have bags that they bring back to the store for each shopping need. We’re new to your blog and we’d like to be an active participant. Here’s an animation we put together to help you create more recycling awareness.
    You can use it any way you want – including sending it to your employees, your management, your community, your honey or your entire hive. This is for people and wannabees who want to do the right thing and need a friendly reminder toward reducing, reusing and recycling. Don’t be stung by being to late. Make a bee-line to this link.

  2. I agree. Shops and stores using plastic or paper bags to pack or carry their goods are not aware how much harm they are doing the environment. These kinds of bags contribute so much waste in the end. And this type of waste is something that you don’t get rid of easily. It’s just enlightening to know that, presently, there are establishments, stores and companies who are taking that step to going green and to being more environment-friendly. Reusable and recyclable bags made from environmentally safe materials are getting more and more popular among consumers. These eco-friendly bags are also durable and flexible.
