Is paper eco-friendly?

When determining the packaging needs for your business, factoring in the eco-friendliness of potential packing options is essential. Consumers are becoming more aware of the impact their packaging can have on the environment when thrown away, which is why many people are moving away from the plastic packaging options and opting for paper and recyclable options instead; but just how eco-friendly are paper bags?

Why paper is eco friendly

Paper bags have a lot of advantages over their plastic counterparts, not only are they often better suited to your brand needs, they are fully biodegradable and can be used for uses like composting and dog poo bags. This is great as using eco-friendly paper bags can then reflect positively on the customer and your brand, which makes them a popular choice for modern supermarkets and clothing stores.

If you opt for paper bags with paper handles, these can often provide a strong bagging option for customers whilst also proving very environmentally friendly. This is one of the reasons why they are such a popular option for takeaways, as they are also ‘boxy’ meaning they are good for carrying large items and plastic tubs of food.
