How to make your business more sustainable with paper bags

Sustainability is a bit of a buzzword in many industries but at Paper Bag Co we thoroughly believe in it and have seen the benefits that it has brought to our clients. 

Sustainability comes in many forms, through buying from ethical supply chains and doing your bit to reduce your companies impact on the environment. If you position yourself as a sustainable brand you will see your market appeal widen amongst customers who are increasingly choosing to shop in sustainable stores.


In this month’s blog, we take a look at how you can use the paper bags from Paper Bag Co to help make your business more sustainable. 

Give your customers recyclable packaging options 

When it comes to sustainability paper bags are a great option as they can be easily recycled. This means you are giving your customers and clients a product that they can enjoy without the guilt of using a single-use product. 

Strong paper bags can be used plenty of times before they have to be recycled. Our paper bags also come in a variety of specifications which means they can be used in a variety of different circumstances. 

Encourage home workers to embrace sustainability

Homeworking has been very much the norm in 2020 and that may be set to continue into 2021. This is a great way to further develop your company from a sustainability perspective. Now that you are offering recyclable paper bags to customers, you will want to make sure your employees are helping you practice what you preach! 

Getting plenty of natural light will not only benefit the energy bill of your workers, but it will also benefit their personal mental health and wellbeing. Try and encourage them to follow green living tips and get some sunlight as this will also help them stay healthy! 

Encouraging the use of online productivity tools will also reduce their reliance on paper-based solutions.

Bring biodegradable paper bags into the mix 

Biodegradable paper mailing bags are great as not only are they strong enough to carry heavy loads repeatedly, they are also 100% biodegradable and compostable. This makes them a sustainable product that you can supply your customers with. 

The compostable paper bags are a very good kitchen staple as once they are done with they can be used to collect compostable waste in a tidy manner. After they are full they can simply be thrown onto the compost heap and allowed to do their thing!
