Earth-, user-friendly promotional shopping bags stand out

Paper is becoming the most popular “green” material option.



  • “Green” materials: More than half of turnout in the line is anticipated to adopt these inputs in one or two years as suppliers respond to the growing ecological awareness worldwide. Paper is the popular option because it dissolves after a certain period.
  • Increased capacity & portability: Keeping user convenience in mind, makers are fitting promotional shopping bags with several compartments to hold extra items and improve organization. For easy carrying, nearly all releases are either fold-away models that have built-in closures or versions featuring storage pouches in various novelty shapes, including strawberry.
  • Flexible contract terms: To stir demand further, companies are relaxing requirements by lowering the MOQ to 1,000 pieces and cutting delivery time to 14 days maximum. Manufacturers’ in-house designers will also become more involved with custom orders.
  • Price projection: Markups of 5 to 10 percent are expected in the following year due mainly to climbing labor and shipping outlay. Costs remain on the upswing as the inflation in China worsens.
