If you often go shopping in shopping malls, you will find that kraft paper bags are widely used in all walks of life.
For example, clothing stores and shoe stores we often go to are the most common places where kraft paper bags are used.
You will even use kraft paper bags when packing in some fast-food restaurants and beverage stores.
Compared with plastic bags, the cost of kraft paper bags is higher. Why are so many enterprises willing to use kraft paper bags?
One reason is that more enterprises pay attention to environmental protection and take environmental protection as a part of corporate culture, so they choose more environmentally friendly and renewable paper bags to replace plastic bags.
The rise of kraft paper bags in China can be said to have started in 2006. That year, McDonald’s China gradually implemented a kraft paper bag with thermal insulation performance in all stores to hold takeout food instead of plastic food bags.
This initiative has also received a positive response from other businesses, such as Nike, Adidas and other former large consumers of plastic bags, have begun to use high-quality kraft paper bags to replace plastic shopping bags.
Of course, there are still some people in the market who have different views on whether kraft paper is environmentally friendly or not. Why are kraft paper bags more environmentally friendly than plastic bags? 2
Generally speaking, people who think kraft paper packaging is not environmentally friendly mainly focus on the manufacturing process of kraft paper and the selection of raw materials.
They believe that paper packaging pulp is obtained by cutting down trees, causing damage to the ecological environment. The other is that a large amount of sewage will be discharged during the production of paper, resulting in water pollution. In fact, these views are somewhat one-sided and backward.
Now big brand kraft paper manufacturers generally adopt the integrated production of Forest Pulp, that is, plant the trees cut in the forest area through scientific management, so as to ensure that their ecology is not damaged and take the road of sustainable development.
Moreover, with the continuous development of science and technology, the wastewater generated in the production process of kraft paper needs to be treated to meet the national discharge standard before it can be discharged.
In addition, kraft paper packaging is 100% recycled, which is an important point that kraft paper is superior to other materials. Even for it, kraft paper will soon be degraded in the soil and “turn into spring mud to protect flowers”. Unlike plastic packaging, it is difficult to degrade, causing “white pollution” and damaging effects on Soil and environment. Through comparison, it is not difficult to see that kraft paper bags do better in environmental protection than plastic bags.
Today, with more and more attention to environmental protection, an environmentally friendly kraft paper packaging bag has become the primary choice of more and more manufacturers.
If you want to contribute to environmental protection, you might as well take kraft paper bags as the first choice of shopping packaging or food packaging bags.
