Reusable Packaging Materials
When it comes to reusable packaging materials to create items like reusable shopping bags, many come to mind. For example, a few of the most popular materials are cotton, pp non-woven and rPET. Most importantly, each type of fabric has its own benefits from durability to eco-friendliness.
Reusable Packaging Materials: Cotton
First, cotton is one of the most common materials when it comes to reusable packaging. Reusable packaging materials like cotton never go out of style. Cotton comes in different gauges and weaves. Use this material year-round as a fashion piece or as packaging. Cotton tote bags come in a variety of premium and trendy styles. Distress or pre-wash these eco-friendly materials prior to construction to soften the fabric. Finally, add embellishments to make any piece of your cotton packaging unique. One of cotton’s greatest advantages is that it is a renewable material and can come from organic sources.
Cotton is a great material to create your seasonal bags from. When customizing your cotton tote bags, some treatments to think about are foil hot stamping, or custom printing. In addition to popular treatments, we can match any Pantone color for an item that completely fits your brand.
PP NON WOVEN
Next, pp-non woven mimics the texture, strength and appearance of woven fabrics without having to knit or weave the fabric together. When creating a reusable shopping bag, an assortment of different construction options are available. These sizes range from large tote bags to smaller die cut handle shoppers. All of these construction options are affordable and the perfect reusable option for your brand.
However, you don’t have to limit yourself to only reusable shopping bags with pp non-woven. Create Garment bags, gift card holders, and pouches from this reusable packaging material.
Many brands and companies tend to gravitate towards polypropylene non-woven because it is affordable to produce, flexible, and is especially easily customizable to fit your target audience. Pp non-woven materials come in any color, have embossing or custom printing.
RPET fabric or Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate is a new reusable and sustainable material that is gaining popularity. Before recycling, PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) is also commonly known as Polyester and can contain either pre or post-consumer waste. rPET generally comes from the process of recycling plastic bottles.
Since rPET fabric is gaining popularity, companies are creating special edition products from this material. For instance, to create your products from rPET fabric, companies must work with outside sources to obtain plastic bottles. The bottles then mechanically break down into tiny flakes and then melt to be spun into yarn. Finally, the yarn weaves into recyclable polyester fabric to create trendy tote bags for customers.
Most importantly, using a sustainable rPET fabric is a great idea when companies manufacture it correctly. With a rising concern for the amount of plastic in our oceans and landfills, cleanup companies help reduce our carbon footprint. With this fabric, we save plastic materials, especially water bottles from our oceans and landfills to create trendy packaging.
Finally, cotton, pp non-woven and rpet are so popular that majority of the demand comes from retailers and customers alike. To be as eco-friendly as possible, they are seeking sustainable, chemical-free packaging and products.
