If you often go shopping in the mall, you will find that kraft paper bags are widely used in various industries. For example, the clothing stores and shoe stores we often go to are the most common places to use kraft paper packaging bags. Kraft paper bags are also used when packing in some fast food restaurants and beverage shops.
Compared with plastic bags, the cost of kraft paper bags is higher, so why are so many companies willing to use kraft paper bags? One of the reasons is that because more companies now attach importance to environmental protection and regard environmental protection as a part of their corporate culture, so they choose more environmentally friendly and renewable paper bags instead of plastic bags.
Since 2006, McDonald's China has gradually implemented a kind of kraft paper bag with thermal insulation properties to hold take-out food in all stores, instead of using plastic food bags. This move has also received a positive response from other businesses. For example, Nike, Adidas and other big consumers of plastic bags have begun to use high-quality kraft paper bags instead of plastic shopping bags.
Of course, some people still have different views on whether kraft paper is environmentally friendly. Generally speaking, people who think that kraft paper packaging is not environmentally friendly mainly think that the manufacturing process of kraft paper and the selection of raw materials are not very environmentally friendly. They believe that the pulp used in paper packaging is obtained by cutting down trees, which will cause damage to the ecological environment. In addition, they believe that a large amount of sewage will be discharged in the production process of paper, which will cause water pollution.
In fact, these views are a bit too one-sided. Nowadays, many kraft paper manufacturers generally adopt the integrated production of forest pulp. That is, the trees felled in the forest area are planted through scientific management to ensure that their ecology is not destructively affected and take the path of sustainable development. And with the continuous development of science and technology, the waste water generated in the production process of kraft paper needs to be treated to meet the discharge standards before it is 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. Moreover, in the natural environment, kraft paper can be degraded naturally, unlike plastic packaging that is difficult to degrade, causing white pollution, and therefore causing destructive effects on the soil and the environment.
By comparison, it is not difficult to find that kraft paper bags are better than plastic bags in terms of environmental protection. As people pay more and more attention to environmental protection, environmentally friendly kraft paper packaging bags have become the primary choice of more and more manufacturers. If you also want to contribute to environmental protection, you can use kraft paper bags as your first choice for shopping packaging or food packaging bags.
