Survey after survey shows that the 21st century consumer prefers paper bags over plastic, and recycled paper bags over virgin fiber paper bags. We have long offered recycled natural as a stock option for many of our bags, but have recently noticed an uptick in requests for recycled white.

Last month we sent out a survey to our customers, asking about preferences in recycled papers and stock bag sizes for some of our most popular bags. Periodically, we send out surveys to our customers to inform our decisions on the products, substrates, and sizes we stock. We had an excellent response to the recycled white survey, and we want to share the results with you.

  • 66% of the survey respondents either buy recycled white bags now, or plan to in the near future.
  • Of those that do or plan to purchase, 57% have purchased more than 20,000 recycled white bags in the past six months.
  • The most requested sizes for recycled white bags are:
    • Merchandise bags:
      • 8.5” x 11”
      • 5” x 7.25”
      • 7.5” x 10.5”
      • 10” x 2” x 15”
    • SOS bags:
      • 4#
      • 12#
      • 2#
      • 8#

We also asked about preferred stock sizes for two of our bags, the wine bag, and the baguette bag. While our current stock sized baguette bag, 4.25” x 2.25” x 24” was the most popular among the respondents, a 5” x 2” x 18” wine bag was chosen most popular for a wine bag.
