Our PaperPak products contain sustainable materials, made from paper or board sourced from responsible forestry. This means we carefully select our suppliers to ensure they are environmentally sound, and their paper is from responsibly managed forests. Individual product pages contain specific information about source materials, with icons to help identify a product's features.

More and more countries and regions around the world are moving to ban lightweight plastic bags for environmental reasons. If you're looking to make an environmentally-conscious choice, Paper Pak has an extensive range of paper bags for all types of uses.
Some of our products do feature a recycled component, while others are made of 100% virgin material. The choice of which is used depends on the structural requirements for each product to ensure it performs at the required level and is fit for purpose. Please enquire regarding a specific product you would like more information on.
