Are paper bags more sustainable than plastic bags?
A common debate in retail is the merits of paper shoppers vs. plastic ones.
They each have pros and cons, which we detail in our in-depth paper versus plastic breakdown.
Spoiler alert - there is no perfect answer! As a quick summary, paper is more circular, as it can be more easily recycled and made with high levels of recycled content. Plastic (LDPE) bags are recyclable but require a special trip to thin film bins found in most big box retailers and traditional grocery stores. Additionally, if they “leak” outside the landfill or recycling stream, they end up as litter that harms our lands and oceans tremendously. That said, plastic bags have a significantly lower carbon footprint than equivalent paper bags.
Many brands we work with 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 bag strategy, we strongly encourage you to seek only 100% recycled paper bags - to ensure this 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 Kraft paper shopping bag for your eco-friendly retail packaging! They look and feel great, are 100% recycled, and are made with a very high percentage of post-consumer content.
Can I custom brand these paper shoppers?
Yes! Custom-branded paper bags are available at relatively low minimum order quantities of just 500 bags. Customizing your shoppers is a great way to highlight your brand and sustainability commitment and help your customers learn how to reuse and recycle these bags.
At lower volumes, paper bags can be printed in a single color. At 5,000 units or more, paper bags can be branded in multiple colors and with a full bleed. Learn more about our enterprise capabilities here.
