Printed Bag for life
January 5, 2015

A printed bag is for life, not for the bin


Did you know, most plastic bags that supermarkets give away are only used by consumers once before they end up in the bin, and can take years to decompose? That’s according to information provided in an article here. As we begin the New Year, it remains an ever-concerning reality that many of us are still not being as green as we could be; even with various products on the market to help us do so.

Here at The Printed Bag Shop, our commitment to the environment means that we strive to do everything we can to help bring you reusable, recyclable and fully-biodegradable bags for your businesses. Here’s how our selection of printed bags can help your company play its part for the planet.

Swap out virgin polythene for high or low density polythene with our plastic bags

We use either high or low density polythene, which is either recycled or fully biodegradable. If you’re a supermarket looking for a greener way to use plastic bags, then this is it. You’ll be doing your bit for the planet at the very first stage. What’s more, it’s great to know that the bags protecting your consumers’ groceries are being recycled for a variety of uses afterwards, like creating pipes, plastic lumber, crates, containers and much more when they no longer have use for them.

Go one step further, and introduce our Printed Flexi Loop Carrier Bags into your stores

Branded ‘Bags for Life’, the printed flexi-loop carrier bags are the ultimate choice in eco-friendly, greener bags and have been for several years now. We offer a range of material thickness, and a choice of high or low density polythene are available, depending on what you’re looking for. These printed bags can take on a lot, as they’re strong, durable and tough. This makes them a fantastic choice for supermarkets, as they can stand the test of time of anything that’s thrown at them, and they can be filled right to the top without ripping. The best part? Consumers can use them again and again.

Encourage style and save the planet at the same time with our rustic Jute Bags

Now, we know plastic vest and flexi loop carrier bags are practical, but they aren’t exactly the most fashionable piece of arm accessory for your consumers. But jute bags are. Fast becoming increasingly popular due to their rustic look and strong, natural material, jute bags are a winner for everyone. Why? Well, they can be used for a variety of purposes after being purchased. As we’re on the subject of supermarkets, they can be used to place groceries in, again and again. But they’re not only good for holding your bags of Brussel sprouts. For example, students can use them to carry heavy books and folders in, as they’re strong enough to take the weight, and they have many more uses, too. They’re fantastic for giving away at conferences, events in farm shops and natural food stores and consumers will most certainly keep them for continued use afterwards.
