Ach so?

The picture on the Ziploc[tm] home page <URL:> depicts
bags which you can find in the Netherlands and Sweden. Among other uses, I
noted that coffeeshops in Amsterdam, NL, sold their raw form Cannabis sativa
products (grass and hash) in these kind of bags to preserve the flavours of
the products. In Sweden you can find various (non-Cannabis) products sold in
these kinds of bags, among them minor computer hardware parts.

You might wish to buy the bags from these two countries to avoid customs duty,
as the Netherland, Sweden, and Germany all form parts of the European Union.
