What are the advantages and disadvantages of printed plastic bags compared to other carrier bags?

The advantages of plastic bags include the following:

  • Printed plastic bags have an appealing look and convey your advertising message.
  • Plastic bags can be produced at a low cost.
  • It is 100% recyclable.
  • Since little energy and water are required in the production of plastic bags, its eco-balance is good. Therefore, from an environmental point of view, it is much better
  • than it is sometimes portrayed in the media.
  • Plastic bags are very light and tear-resistant.
  • The plastic material does not allow moisture to pass through. In the plastic bag, you can carry your shopping home unharmed even in the rain. If something accidentally
  • leaks or gets dirty inside the bag, the plastic bag will keep tight.
  • Plastic bags can be reused frequently. When stored, they take up little space.

Despite the clear advantages of the plastic bag, many retailers have reservations about this service product. The disadvantages of the plastic bag lie essentially in its poor environmental image. But how harmful to the environment are plastic bags really?

Damage is caused primarily by the improper disposal of plastic bags. If plastic film ends up in nature, it takes 100 to 500 years to degrade. This results in damage to the animal and plant world. This problem is less prevalent in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Here, the plastic bags are mainly recycled by the waste management company or at least recovered for energy. If you take the entire life cycle assessment of the plastic bag into account, you will come to the conclusion that the plastic bag is in a pretty good position compared to the alternatives.

What can you do as a retailer?

Charge for the disposal of plastic bags

Printed plastic bags are usually issued for a fee, especially in retail. A levy is not required by law, but many retailers choose to do so voluntarily. Charging for plastic bags promotes customer appreciation of the precious resources used.

Issuing attractive and sturdy plastic bags

The life cycle assessment of a plastic bag becomes better the more often it is reused. Therefore, we recommend issuing high quality shopping bags. The shopping bags we produce are tear-resistant and sturdy, which means they can be used multiple times. Also, an attractive appearance ensures that customers like to use the bags more often.

Use of printed plastic bags made of recycled material

At INFOLIO, you can get plastic bags that are mainly made of recycled material These bags are superior to most alternatives in terms of eco-balance. With the "Blue Angel" eco-label, your customer knows that he is holding a resource-saving product in his hands.

Use of paper doors

If you can and want to do without the advantages of the plastic bag - such as good value for money, tear resistance and resistance to moisture - we recommend paper bags as an alternative. From the point of view of environmental protection, paper bags have the advantage that if they get into the nature, they will rot within a short time. The disadvantage is essentially the poorer ecological balance of the paper bag. This results from the fact that much more energy and water is required in the production process than in the production of a plastic bag. The reuse of paper bags is also more difficult due to their lower tear strength. Ultimately, just like the plastic bag, the paper bag is a disposable product with advantages and disadvantages.

Whether you want to offer paper bags, plastic bags, or both, you can always choose promotional products. We print for you both plastic bags and paper bags with your logo and advertising message.
