Jan. 27, 2014 - PRLog -- Earlier this month, a group of around 95 students in India made a bold attempt to set a new Guinness World Record.

The students from the Faculty of Technology and Engineering at MS University in Vadodara, Gujarat state, spent 9 hours trying to construct the World's biggest paper bag.

They started at 7.30 in the morning, using about 200 kg rolls of paper, in front of crowds of people there to witness the attempt. Among the crowds included the local mayor, several structural engineers, teachers, other students and interested passers-by.

The bags used carried dimensions of 16m x 11m x 3m, which helped them create a bag that beat the current record held by a Romanian supermarket chain.

The students were taking part in a campaign against plastic bag use by the Footprints Social Responsibility scheme, which is why they opted to create a paper bags. There is a serious issue with plastic bags on the environment causing hazards to wildlife in oceans and on land, prompting these Technology and Engineering students into doing something that stood out and against plastic bags.

Here at the Paper Bag Company, we recognise that switching from plastic to paper bags doesn't solve the whole problem, but we do take our environmental responsibilities very seriously - many of our products are Fairtrade. In fact, many are made from recycled material or are fully-recyclable themselves.
