Non-woven polypropylene bags are labelled "eco-friendly" because they can be reused many times. They are more durable than simple plastic bags.
Woven bags are reusable and recyclable, but they are more labor-intensive and require more energy to create them. This means they are not the most environmentally friendly bags. Instead, opt for non-woven bags. First manufactured in China, they are made of spunbond non-woven polypropylene (PP) cloth. The material looks and feels like cloth, but doesn't require weaving - making it a more economical and reasonable option. The following are the main benefits of using this material:
Biodegradable and free of toxic pollutants when burned
No PVC coating or water is used in the manufacturing process.
More durable means they are more reusable.
Screen printing and thermal transfer full color printing available
Packable or foldable
Nonwoven bags are now used by a wide variety of businesses: grocery stores, department stores, gift shops, non-licensed, promotional companies, and more. Non-woven carriers are the most environmentally friendly, versatile and practical bags on the market today.
