StandUpPouches.net Debuts Innovative, Flexible Child Resistant Bags

Child Resistant Bags

New Packaging Solution Meets Federal Regulations for Pharmaceutical, OTC Medications and Marijuana Products 

StandUpPouches.net, the leading online supplier of flexible retail packaging, has launched an innovative form of child resistant packaging that is lightweight, highly protective and compliant with U.S. government regulations for childproof containers. 

Child resistant packaging is used by companies to mitigate the risk of poisoning in children via consuming hazardous items, such as prescription and over-the-counter medications, pesticides and cleaning agents. This type of packaging is also required for emerging brands in the medical marijuana industry.

StandUpPouches.net’s child resistant bags feature a scientifically developed slide-locking mechanism with comprehensive opening instructions, making the packaging intuitive for adult consumers to open but difficult for children to get into. Users must push the small lever up, then pull the zipper out to access the items inside. To reclose, consumers push the zipper lock until they hear a “click” from the bottom lever.

Unlike rigid bottles with plastic caps that must be forcefully pushed or squeezed, the child-proof zip lock is small and lightweight, making the packaging less strenuous for seniors or adults with disabilities to open.

These child resistant bags are expertly manufactured with unique thick-but-flexible layers of opaque, food-grade plastic that are “smell proof” and protect against the entry of outside elements like air, moisture, odor and bacteria that can compromise the quality of the product inside. 

The child resistant packaging can be custom made to fit any brand's individual needs. StandUpPouches.net offers a minimum run of 10,000 for custom printed bags which can be printed in up to 10 colors for brands to display their unique graphic designs, informative text and easily recognizable visual identities. They also offer plain stock child resistant bags in all black or all white, 200 per case. The tamper-evident bags come in size specs of 12.25 x 9 x 4 in. Additional sizes may be requested for stock options.

With the emergence of flexible retail packaging in the CPG space, more consumers prefer this lightweight, space-saving type of container over outdated, bulky, less sustainable options like jars, boxes or canisters. Flexible child resistant bags help build brands — particularly in newer markets like legal cannabis products and THC-infused edibles — while meeting consumer demand and keeping families safe.

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.
