Side Gusseted Pouch Stand Up Bags

Stand up bags, otherwise known as stand up pouches are traditional pouches with a supporting gusset at the bottom, enabling the bag to stand up erect. The advantages of these types of bags are largely dependent on the kind of usage that they normally see. However, a relatively new design is doing the rounds these days. This pouch goes by the name of ‘side gusset pouch’.

The novel and revolutionary design element makes it a potential game changer in the packaging industry. The side gusset bag has an unconventional gusset on the side. This lets the bag to be made out of nearly 12% less film to enable holding a greater volume in almost the same area. Put a ziplock at the top and it is ideal for the food and beverage packaging industry.

The design of the side gusset pouch will ensure that it stands up properly on the shelf. Moreover, it is a marketing dream come true with nearly five faces to place advertising graphics. A stand up pouch, irrespective of its design, is made out of several layers of specially engineered barrier film. These barrier bags can thus keep the product fresh for a longer period of time. The product stays protected from external forces that act to destroy its freshness.

Available in a variety of colors and sizes, stand up pouches are the most effective when you need to ship sensitive products.

What LEGO’s Sustainable Packaging Teaches Us About Overseas Innovation

Since 1949, children across the globe have fawned over tiny, plastic, interlocking bricks.

LEGOs are a not only a classic toy but a staple in many households. Many kids beg their parents to take them to the majestic LEGOLAND, an amusement park where all their wishes and dreams could come true.

Why Nestlé, Unilever & PepsiCo are Banning Oxo-degradable Plastic Packaging

Originally marketed as an eco-friendly packaging material, new evidence regarding the potentially negative impact of oxo-degradable plastics has led a number of companies and governments to restrict their use.

More than 150 companies and global organizations, including Nestlé, Unilever and PepsiCo, have recently endorsed a total ban on the material in light of its potentially negative environmental impact.

Oxo-degradable plastic packaging, which includes select plastic pouch bags, is often marketed as a solution to plastic pollution because it claims to degrade into harmless residues within a period ranging from a few months to several years. However, oxo-degradable plastics do not degrade into harmless residues, but instead, fragment into tiny shards of plastic that actually contribute to plastic pollution.

Often, consumers think that because a material is biodegradable, it can be composted or even littered on the ground, because, it is thought, the material will break down into nothing over time. This actually ends up leading to an increase in pollution, since consumers don’t end up recycling or repurposing the material, and misconceptions about how the plastic will degrade leads them to end up putting it back into landfills.

What is important to note in this case is that although oxo-degradable plastics are biodegradable, being biodegradable does not necessarily mean that a material is eco-friendly. Although these plastics do break down over time, the tiny pieces they break down into are still plastics that contribute to pollution — they do not degrade into nothing or into another usable substance.

For companies looking to make the switch to sustainable packaging, it is important to consider that sustainable packaging does not necessarily mean biodegradable packaging, and vice versa.

Why New FDA Guidelines Could Bring Big Changes to Pet Food Packaging

Today’s consumers are demanding transparency and accountability from all types of products, and pet food is no exception.

Greater scrutiny over pet food ingredients, and an increasing demand for responsibility, sustainability and complete transparency from pet food manufacturers is driving change within the industry. As the consumer demand for “clean” pet food labeling evolves as a major topic within the world of pet packaging, FDA guidelines are shifting.
