Packaging Products have alternatives available for consumers who need options to the single-use shopping bags. With the ban on single-use shopping bags coming into effect from 1st July the company has a range of alternative bags including 70 micron compostable retail bags with handles, paper bags, and 70 micron reusable plastic bags (made from recycled plastic) that are compliant with the new Government Regulations. These bags are commercially and home compostable.

Online store Packaging Products is providing great choices to businesses that need packaging products, custom labelling, and engraving and signage services at great prices. Businesses looking for alternatives following the ban on single-use plastics will find options from Packaging Products environmentally friendly and sustainable.

Plastic bags are used for only 12 minutes on average, buy they stay around for hundreds of years polluting the environment, clogging our drain pipes, posing a huge threat to our marine life, and working their way into our food chain. It is predicted that by 2050, there will be as much plastic as there are fish in the oceans.

Removing single-use plastic bags and living plastic-free is aimed at reducing pollution, and help take action on climate change by reducing our carbon footprint.  Global research calculates that across their lifecycle, plastics account for 3.8 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions.

Packaging Products also stock the Eco Pal range of biodegradable Rubbish Bags, Wheelie Bin Liners and Kitchen Tidy Liners. Once degradation occurs, it is followed by biodegradation and no harmful chemicals remain. 

Packaging Products also offers branded long life reusable bags in a range of materials such as cotton, jute, light weight nylon and polyester.  Packaging Products is an online supplier of packaging supplies including New Zealand's largest range of stock boxes, cases and cartons.
