Are paper bags more sustainable than plastic bags?
Spoiler alert - there is no perfect answer! Paper is more circular because it can be easily recycled and made with high recycled content. Plastic (LDPE) bags are recyclable but require a special trip to thin film bins found in most big box retailers and traditional groceries. Additionally, if they “leak” outside the landfill or recycling stream, they become litter that tremendously harms our lands and oceans. That said, plastic has a significantly lower carbon footprint than paper equivalents.
Many of our customers are moving away from plastic to support their sustainability goals. Some also face plastic bans in the municipalities, states, or entire countries where they operate.
Whatever motivates you to adopt a paper strategy, we strongly encourage you to seek 100% recycled content to ensure your packaging swap isn’t putting unnecessary pressure on our planet’s forests. Learn why all paper isn’t created equal.
With that lens, it is hard to beat our recycled paper bag for your eco-friendly retail packaging. They look and feel great, are 100% recycled, and are made with a high percentage of post-consumer content.
Are paper bags more eco-friendly than plastic bags?
But it is by no means a perfect and fully sustainable resource. Paper relies on trees, and unfortunately, how our world currently harvests trees to become the single-use packaging we rely on is depleting ecosystems and primary forests.
Because of this, we strongly advise anyone choosing paper to go with 100% recycled paper packaging to reduce the burden that our heavy paper usage places on our forestlands.
Plastic is well known to be detrimental to the planet. However, anyone debating plastic and paper should also be aware that plastic tends to have a significantly lower carbon footprint than paper. Additionally, plastic is much stronger and will likely lead to less damage and customer frustration than paper alternatives. If you conduct research and decide that plastic makes more sense for your operation, choose 100% recycled plastic options and set up programs to maximize the recycling rate of this material.
