[greenyes] Query--bags for recycling
Hello-

The cleaning company at our college has a pretty bad image, in so much as many faculty and staff believe that they do not really recycle their paper in the offices, but simply throw it in the trash.  While this is not true (!), they think this because when the cleaning company goes around with their cleaning carts, they empty the trash and the paper into one container, but within the container are 2 separate bags.

In an attempt to dispel this "we don't really recycle, so why should i?" myth, I am looking into purchasing reusable bags to hang on the side of cleaning carts, with "Recyclable Paper" or something printed on the bags, so it is obvious to everyone that recycling is seperate and is happening.

So far, I have found one company, that makes bags like this, Bagit Systems in Oregon (www.bagitsystem.com).  Has anyone had any experience with them?  Also, can anyone recommend any other companies that make similar products?

Thanks in advance!
