Paper bags are cheap, practical, and sustainable tools used for packaging and carrying goods. Regular paper bags like pinch bottom paper bags found in grocery stores, pharmacies, and bookstores are completely biodegradable and decompose in about a month after disposal.
They do have a few drawbacks, and one is that it requires wood to mass-produce them, and when the source for this material is not checked, they could be contributing to deforestation. The second drawback is that unless they have additional layering or coating, paper bags can’t withstand wet and greasy contents very well.
Most brown paper bags are named after the material used to manufacture them or their suggested use. Kraft paper bags are the most common, named after the kraft pulp process through which they are manufactured. Kraft is a reference to the German word that means strength. The process involves chemically processing wood chips into a wood pulp made almost entirely of cellulose fibers.
Regular paper bags and paper bags with handles are used for packaging and shopping bags for groceries, pharmacies, department stores, malls, etc. They are also used for food packaging in restaurants or fast food businesses. Airplanes usually have special paper bags for people with air sickness. Most bags are reusable if not severely damaged, making them useful for carrying lunch boxes to school or work.
Paper bags are biodegradable, meaning they can completely decompose in landfills in about a month. This process is even faster in water and will prevent them from harming aquatic life forms if they ever end up in bodies of water. They also pose a less choking hazard to children as it is easy to tear them apart. Paper bags with handles are also just as convenient as plastic bags.
Paper bags with handles usually come with thin rope, twist paper, folded paper, or even die-cut handles. When buying paper bags, it is important to know which one suits the task you plan to use them for. Some handles may not hold up as well to certain weights compared to others. It is listed in most product descriptions what type of handle the paper bags will come with.
