Our Retail Bag customer favourites

Luxury does not have to come at the cost of the environment. We have a range of sustainable options which means you won’t have to compromise on quality or design.

Retail paper bags have emerged as the material of choice for the brands we work with. A simple, well printed paper bag is the epitome of style and sophistication and loved by brands and their customers alike. They offer a perfect blend of form and function. Typically produced from renewable sources and easily recycled – it’s the go –to choice for the environmentally conscious retailer.

That’s not to say plastic does not have a part to play! When it comes to longevity, plastic bags have a much longer life span and when made from recycled content, they can be just as eco-friendly as paper and therefore popular with our customers.

Sustainable sophistication

With so many innovative materials to choose from, your retail bags can also complement other eco-friendly packaging choices to create a wholistic approach to sustainability. Choose from FSC accredited quality paper to eco-friendly bio-based materials that still feel luxurious without the environmental impact.

Sustainability continues to drive innovation with new products that are better for the environment. Bioplastics (bio bags) using ingredients such as corn and potato starch and sugarcane are all derived from renewable sources.

Our range of bags also includes natural materials such as jute Bags for Life, a stylish and long-lasting consumer favourite.
