Cotton Bag

Printed cotton bags are a lightweight durable bag and one of the most popular environmentally friendly bags we get asked for.

The printed cotton bags are popular with retailers and events companies.

Standard size cotton shoppers are 380mm wide x 420mm deep with either a short cotton handle or a long shoulder length handle. 

The benefit of plain and printed cotton bags is their durability, they can be used time and again and when they are dirty can be put in the washing machine. Should you dispose of the cotton shopper they are biodegradable when put into landfill and will leave no harmful toxins.

Jute Bags

Jute carrier bags have seen a dramatic increase in popularity in recent years.  This style of bag is perceived as the more durable stylish alternative to cotton. Thanks to the strength of the material, these bags make a great bag for life. If you are looking for high quality printed jute bags Planet Packaging can offer you this.

A stock size that we offer is 390mm x 150mm x 350mm which we have found to be the most popular.

Retailers are recognizing the printed jute bags are an eco-friendly alternative to the disposable bags that have dominated retail over the last 20 years.
