Plastic produce bags may be a convenient way of packaging fruit and vegetables for you customer, but today they are rather a cost for your business. Their useful lifecycle consists of approximately 20-30 minutes. Once the customer comes home, these bags are torn open and often end up in the organic waste : 14 % of the contamination consists of exactly these type of bags!
Paper may seem like a more ecological choice, but is not. It is also not very practical : it is not transparent at the cash register, the logistic handling is more complex, and it is not resistant to humidity.
Reusable cotton bags are equally unpractical nor environmentally friendly: 25 % of the worldwide use of pesticides are used in the cultivation of cotton.
Compostable bags are transparent, resistant to humidity and have a positive impact on the environment. You just can’t say no to so much extra and positive publicity!
