Recyclable paper and plastic webshop bags realize sustainability in e-commerce market

  • Blog

Online retail is increasingly aware of the environmental impact for transporting their products to the customer. Unnecessarily large packages or heavy packaging materials are increasingly disappearing from the delivery van of the parcel delivery driver; which has a positive effect on reducing CO2 for several reasons.

Web shop bags are a perfect and efficient shipping solution for environmentally conscious e-commerce activities. The low weight, excellent protective properties and complete recyclability of these packages make them great for use in multiple e-commerce segments. The #webshopbag, also known as a shipping bag, can be printed entirely as desired. Oerlemans Plastics has built up a lot of expertise in recent years to advise retail customers on the best solution for their transition from shipping packaging to a sustainable alternative. The flexible packaging manufacturer also has several sizes of unprinted packaging available from stock.

Depending on the product, various packaging materials can be chosen. Oerlemans Plastics supplies both paper and plastic varieties, the latter of which is available in virgin PE, recycled PE (PCR or PIR) and BIO-BASED PE (mono or multilayer)

For the plastic (coex) #shipping bag the company has been the trusted address for years but what is new is that this bag is now also available in #paper. As of today, Oerlemans Plastics has four sizes of blank paper shipping bags in stock. We have added these four sizes (S to XL) to the standard assortment.

The packaging is made of FSC brown kraft paper and features one permanent adhesive strip.

If you are looking for customization or a printed version: we are happy to arrange that for you as well. Up to as many as eight colors can be printed on the paper shipping bags from 10,000 pieces. The plastic version can even be printed in up to ten colors (available from 5,000 pieces).

The paper portfolio webshopbags is a welcome extension of our packaging solutions for entrepreneurs in e-commerce, retail and industry, among others.
