Looking for a curbside recyclable, naturally biodegradable alternative to a clear poly bag? EcoEnclose Vela Glassine Bags, in partnership with Vela, are a unique and innovative plastic-free wholesale solution for internal packaging.
 
Glassine Bags are resistant to humidity, atmospheric moisture, and dust while maintaining breathability. The smooth and toothless paper ensures no fibers transfer onto your goods, yet they are durable enough for your supply chain - from manufacturer to distribution center to customer.
 
The translucent paper allows for visual inspection and, with some systems, barcode scanning, making them an ideal alternative to single-use plastic poly bags. We recommend ordering samples to test scannability in your environment.

What are Glassine Bags?

Glassine is a glossy, thin paper that is air, water, and grease resistant. Glassine isn’t fully waterproof, but it still offers decent protection against the elements. Despite being glossy and smooth, Glassine is still made with only wood pulp. Glassine pouches are great for inner packaging, and when custom-branded can make a great first impression. Glassine is more sustainable than some other types of bags because they are made from paper, not fossil fuels, and are both recyclable and biodegradable.
