Earth Friendly Packaging: Paper Shopping Bags
There are many ways to create inspirational green packaging. For example, from choosing eco-friendly materials, handles and special treatments to custom printing with soy inks; making your packaging earth friendly is made easy.
First, create paper shopping bags ranging in size and design from durable and recyclable materials. Choose post-consumer waste materials, and Kraft papers. These materials can be FSC® Certified to ensure forest conservation. FSC® (The Forest Stewardship Council) is one of the most credible resources in protecting natural reserves. The council also oversees responsibly forested wood that is made into paper. These responsibly sourcable materials can create a custom paper bag that fits any brand.
Paper containing at least 40% post-consumer waste is another great option when creating Earth friendly packaging. This option will recycle old paper into a new stylish shopper. Post-consumer waste packaging normally abides by certain city and state wide bag ban laws that affect cities around the country. Certainly, this ensures companies create their shopping bags with the correct amount of recyclable materials. Using post-consumer waste shopping bags help eliminate paper waste.
Earth Friendly Packaging: Reusable Shopping Bags
In addition to paper shopping bags, your brand has the option of creating reusable packaging. Continuing the eco-friendly trend, tote bags or pouches made from durable materials like rPET (created from recycled plastic bottles) , cotton, jute and muslin are great options. Next, use these materials to create a unique carrier that fits your brand. Reusable tote bags and pouches are so versatile; use them as an everyday fashion accessory, storage, or simply as a tote for running errands.
Above all, you too can do your part in the preservation and protection of our planet. With the use of reusable shopping bags, you can reduce your carbon footprint. By creating multi-use bags, your customers will use them for a longer period of time. Reuse the many natural and synthetic materials to create fashionable and functional shopping bags. your customers will love these one of a kind reusable shopping bags.
In short, keeping the Earth clean is a year-round effort. Earth Day 2021 is all about being aware of your impact on the environment. However, your packaging doesn’t have to be boring. Incorporating natural, recyclable materials and current environmental trends into your packaging collections while still being eco-friendly is an easy possibility.
