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 to use kraft paper bags. Even when you pack in some fast food restaurants and beverage stores, you will also use kraft paper bags as the takeaway bags. Compared with plastic bags, the cost of kraft paper bags is higher. Why are so many enterprises willing to use kraft paper bags? One of the reasons is that more enterprises attach importance to environmental protection and regard environmental protection as a part of corporate culture, so they choose more environmentally-friendly and renewable paper bags instead of plastic bags.
The rise of kraft paper bags in China can be said to have started in 2006, when McDonald’s China gradually implemented a kind of kraft paper bag with thermal insulation performance in all stores to hold takeout food, replacing the use of plastic food bags. This move has also received 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 opinions on whether kraft paper is environmentally friendly or not. 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 the pulp of paper packaging is obtained by cutting down trees, causing damage to the ecological environment. The other is the paper in the production process will discharge a large number of sewage, causing water pollution.
In fact, these views are somewhat one-sided and backward. Nowadays, large-scale kraft paper manufacturers generally adopt the integrated production of Forest Pulp, that is, through scientific management, the trees felled in the forest area will be planted to ensure that their ecology will not be damaged and take the road of sustainable development. With the continuous development of science and technology, the wastewater produced in the process of kraft paper production needs to be treated to meet the national discharge standards before being allowed to be discharged.
In addition, kraft paper packaging is 100% recycled, which is an important point that kraft paper is superior to other packaging materials. Even for it, kraft paper will be quickly degraded in the soil, “turn into spring mud to protect flowers more.”. Unlike plastic packaging, which is difficult to degrade, causing “white pollution” and having a destructive impact on the soil and the environment.
Through comparison, it is not difficult to see that kraft paper bag is better than plastic bag in environmental protection. Today, more and more attention is paid to environmental protection. An environmental protection kraft paper packaging bag has become the first choice of more and more manufacturers. If you want to contribute to environmental protection, you may as well take the kraft paper bag as the first choice for shopping or food packaging.
