  • A paper bag will decompose and pose no threat to wildlife or the environment.
  • Paper bags are ideal as a container to hold compostable waste.

Paper bags are great for marketing

  • Get your message out -  we can add colorful graphics to any bag in our product line in order to convey your creative advertising message.

Paper grocery bags are durable and easy to use

  • Grocery sacks hold up to 20 pounds of groceries and stand upright, so groceries will not roll all over your car.
  • Handles make the sacks easy to carry.
  • Grocery sacks are made of at least 40% recycled materials.

All our bags and sacks can be made of white, kraft, or specialty papers and custom print to fit your needs.  Our product line includes:

  • Select the best bags for the load. Never use the handles to open bags. Leave handles down until bag is filled. There's no need to double bag.
  • Pack similar items together, heavy stuff on the bottom and boxes on the sides.
  • Put wet items in separate bags with glass spaced apart in the center.
  • Place crushables on top, then pull handles straight up. Don't bag large items with handles.
