  • Lightweight mailing bags – cutting the cost of postage
    every ten internet users making at least one online purchase per year but recent studies by International Parcel Company DPD show that exorbitant postage and shipping costs are having a negative impact on the consumers shopping experience A staggering 73 of UK consumers said that they failed to complete an online shopping purchase and abandoned their shopping cart at the postage stage due to high delivery charges and restricted delivery options while a further 37 per cent said they were put off by expensive automatically selected postage prices In a highly competitive business world many retailers simply cannot afford to offer free or discounted shipping but if the results of this survey are anything to go by it seems limited and expensive delivery options are costing internet retailers millions of pounds in lost sales so what is the solution Strong lightweight and cost effective packaging is a great place to start and by replacing heavy boxes bulky bubble wrap and porous paper envelopes with high quality plastic mailing bags we can ship our products across the world for less Plastic mailing bags are available in a range of different sizes and styles many come with a tamperproof seal and with three different thicknesses to choose from 60 75 and 100 micron you can choose the smallest lightest mailing bag for each particular item Another benefit of plastic mailing bags is that the surface is printable Many online retailers choose to brand their bags with their company logo and contact details which not only installs confidence in the consumer but also advertises the company s services and products as the bags are shipped from one location to another Mailing bags may not remove the costs of postage and shipping altogether but if we offer a lighter and more cost effective shipping

  • Degradable, Biodegradable, Compostable - What does it mean?
    use and to become more eco friendly there is growing demand for sustainable packaging materials that are both cost effective and kind on the environment No longer a simple choice between plastic carrier bags and paper carrier bags businesses now have to consider what energy is used to make the bags such as wind power solar power and nuclear energy how far the bags are going to be transported and how significant the carbon footprint is going to be Only then can one understand the impact those carrier bags are going to have on the environment and how sustainable they really are Of course consumers do not have access to this kind of information but there are several words we can look out for such as degradable biodegradable and compostable to give us a better understanding of the type of carrier bags we are using Degradable plastic carrier bags contain additives that help them to break down when exposed to direct sunlight The average amount of time it takes for a degradable carrier bag to break down depends on the temperature but many suggest it takes approximately 2 years While these bags fall apart they do not completely disappear and can leave environmentally harmful particles behind Manufactured in much the same way Biodegradable carrier bags contain additives that assist the polythene to degrade when exposed to heat and or light Bio organisms found in soil can also initiate the degradation process so these bags can break down in approximately 18 months once they reach the landfill Compostable carrier bags are governed by the EN 13432 regulation and must be made of materials that will break down within 3 months and have no polythene content Made from organic materials such as cornstarch these bags are designed to dissolve naturally into the
