Hi team, hoping to get some insight for a brand that my friend and I started in January this year.
The brand is called 'Bagged NZ' and we make high quality bags out of repurposed billboard vinyl.
At this stage we manufacture our bags locally in Auckland, but due to limited resources we are keen to outsource this to China.
We have a number of factors that need answering and I hope this platform might help!
Firstly, if we export used billboard material over to China, we need to know whether we would need a permit as well as potential fines for this material being deemed as hazardous waste?
Secondly, are there any places in China or wider Asia, where we could source billboard material? That would save us time, money and reduce emissions for freighting our product to China and back to New Zealand.
