The bags, which are both water and tear resistant, will be manufactured in custom sizes with custom branding options.
AB Group Packaging managing director Dermot Brady said: “Companies offering these bags to customers in store can be assured that they are choosing a responsibly sourced, renewable paper alternative choice to thicker plastic bags.
“Our heavyweight bags are reusable, recyclable, compostable and biodegradable – a great environmental choice which ticks all the boxes for the eco minded customer.”
The paper bags are developed using large side gussets, allowing them to sit upright and open easily for fast, easy packing. Additionally, the bag allows customs to fold neatly and store it for reuse.
